Nawaz, S., Xu, X., Rodenas-Herráiz, D., Fidler, P., Soga, K., & Mascolo, C. (2015). Monitoring A Large Construction Site Using Wireless Sensor Networks. Proceedings of the 6th ACM Workshop on Real World Wireless Sensor Networks, 27-30. https://doi.org/10.1145/2820990.2820997
Despite the significant advances made by wireless sensor network research, deployments of such networks in real application environments are fraught with significant difficulties and challenges that include robust topology design, network diagnostics and maintenance. Based on our experience of a six-month-long wireless sensor network deployment in a large construction site, we highlight these challenges and argue the need for new tools and enhancements to current protocols to address these challenges.
This research has been funded by the EPSRC Innovation and Knowledge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction project (EP/K000314/1). We would like to thank Costain-Skanska Joint Venture (CSJV) and our industrial partner Crossrail for allowing access and instrumentation of the Paddington site. We would also like to thank Dr Munenori Shibata from Japan Railway Technical Research Institute for his assistance with network deployment.
