The Latest Trend in Tunnel Construction

If you are involved in tunnel construction projects you know that monitoring surface and underground excavations to decrease potential risks and control operational costs are key. But what if you work with manually or automatically collected monitoring data, which is outdated quickly and not available in real time.

Tunnel Monitoring in the Construction Phase

How Wireless Monitoring Systems help track performance, identify issues and decrease operational risks

If you are involved in tunnel construction projects you know that monitoring surface and underground excavations to decrease potential risks and control operational costs are key. But what if you work with manually or automatically collected monitoring data, which is outdated quickly and not available in real time.

Find out how Wireless Monitoring Systems based on IoT technology can help you obtain asset information timely, inform decision makers and prompt appropriate action when necessary.

The purpose of this webinar is to introduce wireless technologies for remote, real-time monitoring and its application areas to construction and service companies, share real-world case studies and provide you with the tools to build your own monitoring strategy.

In this webinar we will look at:

  • Introduction to data acquisition systems
  • Trends in wireless data readings and analysis
  • Pro and cons of available technology
  • Zoom in on outside and inside tunnel monitoring with application areas such as:
    • Surface settlement and building movements
    • Surface monitoring of in-ground sensors
    • Pore water pressure
    • Ground anchors
  • Quick guide for building your own wireless monitoring strategy
  • Lessons learned: real-life cases from metro tunnel construction projects in the US
  • Beyond tunneling: related geotechnical application areas
  • Trends in IoT tunneling: from Operational Intelligence to Digital Twins

In this webinar you will learn:

Trends in wireless data readings and analysis
Examples for outside and inside tunnel monitoring
Real-world cases from metro tunnel construction projects
The future of IoT tunneling
