AI Video Analytics To Detect Material On Roads
Surface Deposit Detection (S.D.D.) is the latest innovation from Bi3. S.D.D. uses AI video analytics to detect and alert when sediment, mud, snow or other matter builds up on a surface. this is particularly a common issue with mud on the roads leading to or from a construction site as well as at the entry and exit points. S.D.D. monitors these zones, detects the matter as it builds and generates an alert when the predetermined level of matter is reached. The generated alert is then relayed distributed to the responsible personnel to trigger a cleaning response or other corrective action. Reports can also be created to identify trends such as when material is likely to build up, helping to optimise, a sites cleaning schedule, automate processes and reduce costs.
How Does Surface Deposit Detection Work?
Surface Deposit Detection otherwise know as S.D.D., is a software base solution that looks at roads and other surfaces and monitors for the build up of sediment, mud, sand, slush, leaves, snow and more. When this level of matter builds to a pre arranged level the solution, an alert is generated.
This alert is then relayed to the responsible person, site managers and/or clean up crews, triggering the cleaning process and resolving the issue.
Where Does S.D.D. Work?
Surface Deposit Detection operates as a software algorithm, seamlessly integrating with a site’s current CCTV setup, requiring minimal infrastructure modifications. It can also be incorporated into Bi3’s customizable Prism platform for a comprehensive solution. Prism offers versatility and a range of advantages that complement the S.D.D. system.
Optimise Cleaning Schedules
Utilise S.D.D. to enhance your site’s cleaning procedures. S.D.D. replaces manual road inspections by employing CCTV to monitor site entrances and exits. It promptly alerts when clean-up is needed.
Reduce Site Clean up Costs
Enhance efficiency and cost-effectiveness in road clean-up on construction sites through optimisation and automation. Employ S.D.D. to initiate the clean-up process once it reaches a predefined level, minimising costs and streamlining operations.
Automate Business Processes
Leveraging video analytics, S.D.D. recognises when a surface accumulates a specific level of sediment or material, prompting alerts. This notification prompts cleaning staff or site managers to initiate a timely cleaning response.
Why is Mud a problem For Construction sites?
Dragging mud onto public roads from construction vehicles poses multiple challenges for construction sites and companies. It compromises safety by causing reduced visibility, slippery surfaces, and longer braking distances, leading to accidents and injuries. Additionally, road and environmental damage like potholes, drain blockages, and water pollution result in expensive repairs and fines.
Moreover, this practice tarnishes the construction industry’s image, impacting professionalism and trust. To address these issues, construction sites and companies should implement preventative measures, enhancing both performance and reputation.
Mud, Construction & Legislation
Surface Deposit Detection directly aligns with various legislation, encompassing the Highways Act 1980 and the Environmental Protection Act 1990. This significance lies in the fact that mud accumulation on roads can induce accidents, injuries, and public inconvenience, potentially attributing legal responsibility to those accountable for its presence.
Furthermore, by proactively employing technological solutions, you can avert the costly ramifications of site shutdowns, which can translate into substantial revenue losses and penalties for the business. S.D.D. contributes to minimizing the probability of grievances and shutdowns, thereby fostering the seamless operation of a construction site and mitigating adverse repercussions.
Build Trust & Community Relations
The public is often the first to detect and voice concerns when mud-related problems arise. Surface Deposit Detection directly addresses this challenge, working to restore community confidence. By swiftly and automatically addressing issues, the system prevents mud concerns from escalating to a level that triggers public complaints. Moreover, its implementation reflects a commitment to technology-driven solutions, fostering trust and showcasing an investment in addressing community issues.
Reduce Risk & Site Shutdowns
Communities and public grievances often serve as catalysts for construction site shutdowns. When local residents or stakeholders encounter problems, they can leverage media, local MPs, and regulatory bodies to create challenges for construction projects. Site shutdowns can have far-reaching consequences, putting construction on hold and incurring significant costs, potentially reaching into the millions. This disruption can further compromise project schedules, leading to reputational harm and financial setbacks for construction companies.
