Sensera’s powerful SiteCloud software platform is the foundation for SiteCloud Analytics. This 100% cloud-based solution provides automated remote provisioning and management of site cameras across WiFi and cellular carriers, integrating images, video, and sensor data into a single turn-key platform. Sensera cameras are software driven and provide a wide range of functionality including processing for edge-video and image analytics, reducing network costs.
The construction industry recognizes the potential for Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Computer Vision (CV) to improve jobsite outcomes in productivity, safety & risk, site security, logistics, and quality using real-time automatic analysis of imagery being collected on site. However, adoption of such applications has not met expectations. There are several reasons for this slow technology adoption:
SiteCloud Analytics is a unique hardware/software platform and ecosystem that allows deployment of analytics applications at scale. The platform consists of Sensera Systems’ cameras and SiteCloud software, robust real-time APIs that exchange two-way jobsite imagery in real-time, a flexible set of go-to-market models, and a growing set of off-the-shelf AI/Analytics applications for jobsites. SiteCloud Analytics was developed to addresses barriers to adoption by providing:
SiteCloud Analytics, with its partner integrations and capabilities, comprises a powerful and growing suite of applications and use-cases that address multiple areas of Construction including HSE, Logistics, Quality, Productivity and Security. SiteCloud Analytics initially launched with the LaborTrend application.
LaborTrend, is a completely automated application for real-time estimation of labor levels on jobsites. LaborTrend automatically analyzes Sensera camera imagery and calculates estimates of total site labor headcount. The LaborTrend interface allows users to configure the system to jobsite specifics and provides historical reporting and real-time alerting. LaborTrend supports inputs from multiple cameras across a site, to allow for complete site coverage.
LaborTrend works with all Sensera Systems camera models, however camera placement should be considered for best support of LaborTrend functionality.
Available to all SiteCloud users after a short qualifying process to insure suitability of the specific jobsite.
CONXAI leverages “Explainable AI” to harness the AEC industry’s flood of data, turning it into knowledge and actionable insights. Non-tech users can quickly build and configure scalable AI-powered analytics solutions for HSE, Logistics, and Quality at a lower cost than existing solutions.
“CONXAI is focused on making the benefits of AI technology available to the construction Industry. We have enjoyed working with the Sensera team to develop combined solutions, and we are excited at the benefits the Sensera SiteCloud Analytics partnership brings to our combined customers; their knowledge-based solutions can now be built faster, with less complexity.”
—Sharique Husain, CEO, CONXAI
The Applications: CONXAI’s system is fully integrated with SiteCloud Analytics providing end-to-end jobsite intelligence solutions for a growing set of use-cases. This integration can be deployed as internal SiteCloud applications, and/or CONXAI dashboard applications.
PCL is a market leader in construction with diverse operations in the civil infrastructure, heavy industrial and building markets throughout North American and Australia. With an annual construction volume of more than $8 billion CAD, PCL is the largest contracting organization in Canada and one of the largest in North America.
“PCL leverages Sensera’s SiteCloud Analytics’ realtime video, imagery, and analytics to complement other sensor and field-based data coming from the site, enabling job site conditions and events. The best-of-bread solution that Sensera Systems has created with SiteCloud Analytics is a powerful model for delivering more value in a scalable way to project teams everywhere.“
—Mark Bryant (CIO), PCL Construction
The Applications: Users of PCL’s Job Site Insights can use any Sensera SiteCloud cameras to capture and view real-time jobsite imagery alongside IoT sensor data and other Job Site Insights applications.
Reconstruct is a Visual Command Center that brings together reality capture, drawings and schedule in one platform, enabling construction teams and decision makers to see “what is there” vs “what should be there”.
“SiteCloud Analytics allows us to have jobsite imagery feed automatically into Reconstruct in real-time. This helps us in providing customers an end-to-end solution for empowering project teams to manage remotely, monitor quality, mitigate risk, and make better decisions.“
—Zak MacRunnels, CEO, Reconstruct Inc.
The Applications: Reconstruct’s Visual Command Center is integrated with SiteCloud Analytics to automatically ingest real-time jobsite imagery to help project teams to manage remotely, monitor quality, mitigate risk, and make better decisions.
Amazon Rekognition is a cloud-based software as a service computer vision platform that was launched in 2016.
The Application: Amazon Rekognition is integrated with SiteCloud Analytics as part of LaborTrend and other applications. Users of LaborTrend do not need to interact with, or have an account with Amazon Rekognition.
Potential applications and use-cases that are currently integrated within SiteCloud Analytics and partner platforms that can be quickly tailored to your specific requirements include:
Underlying these applications are a rich set of capabilities to detect objects, events, and activities that can address a wide range of value propositions on the jobsite.
General Contractors interested in piloting or deploying a SiteCloud Analytics application should engage with the Sensera Systems sales team. We will walk through the use-cases of interest, demonstrate the technology, and identify suitable sites and a plan for piloting/deployment.
Existing Sensera Systems SiteCloud users may be able to deploy Analytics applications on existing cameras/projects. Contact Sensera sales to learn more.
