Rule-Based Automated Safety Monotoring System for Work Zone SafetyAuthor/Presenter: Gnawali, Omprakash; Kim, Kyungki
Construction is considered a hazardous industry responsible for a large portion of fatal and non-fatal work-related injuries. Despite efforts by the construction industry, many fatalities and injuries are still occurring, for one reason, because of dynamic and complex construction site conditions.
The TRB IDEA (Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis) Program’s NCHRP IDEA Final Report for Project 206: Rule-Based Automated Safety Monitoring System for Work Zone Safety details a real-time ultra-wideband-based location tracking and monitoring system called vehicle pose estimation using ultra-wide band radios (ViPER) that eliminate the effects of Non-Line of Sight (NLOS) situations when they occur, thereby improving localization performance in those challenging scenarios.
