Construction is among the least digitized industries, second only to agriculture & hunting. At the BuiltWorlds Summit 2017 in Chicago, thought leaders from the architecture, engineering and construction industries gathered to discuss innovative and emerging technologies to improve productivity and safety on the job, including Spot-r by Triax.

Triax Technologies first made its mark with a sports-impact sensor system and recently expanded into construction with Spot-r, a system that combines a secure wireless mesh network with mobile dashboards and wearable sensors to provide real-time visibility of site safety and productivity. “The wearable not only includes a self-alert button that allows site personnel to report a trip or a fall as it occurs; [it also] allows them to instantly report site hazards that could trigger potential injuries,” Triax President Chad Hollingsworth said. Safety supervisors can also use the sensor to trigger site-wide audible evacuation alerts in the event of an emergency, Hollingsworth added.
