Connected construction sites: Real-time geolocation
Real-time geolocation of construction materials via a reporting portal, helping keep construction sites secure.
Incubated by Bouygues Construction, Omniscient, provides site teams with IoT data, accessible in real time from the platform and the application thanks to sensors installed on on-site equipment.
With more than twenty technologies already integrated into the Kuzzle IoT open-source platform, My Omniscient makes construction resources ‘talk’, adapting itself to all manner of situations (multiple sites, indoor, outdoor etc.):
Rolling stock: optimisation of dispatching and investments (real-time location and measurement of utilisation rate to optimise equipment management).
Monitoring of machinery and people in a tunnel (Ensuring worker safety and improving production methods).
The data from the connected equipment can be used to improve production processes, site management and, more generally, management and supervision.
Connected construction sites
« The project showed the Bouygues Construction teams that we could integrate various geolocation solutions, display them on a map, and use the data within just one week! With Kuzzle IoT, we talk about development in weeks rather than months! »
Construction site geolocation service
Development of a geofencing service to manage equipment on construction sites, organise the distribution of tools and materials, remotely and in real time with the Kuzzle IoT Open-Source IoT platform.

Anonymised key data and connectivity
Thanks to connected chips, Omniscient and Kuzzle IoT allow Bouygues Construction teams to access anonymised key data on their site equipment via an application. These chips communicate wirelessly via a network of 2.4 GHz portable beacons installed on the equipment to optimise equipment management and the utilisation rate. This data is fed back via 50,000 connected sensors installed on the equipment and on staff hard hats in order to geolocate equipment in real time and facilitate management.
The data is accessible in real time from the platform and the application via dashboards, which transform the collected data into useful statistics.
Connecting construction sites with real-time Kuzzle IoT features
With just a few clicks, teams can use hard data to optimise equipment utilisation and:
- Locate their equipment in real time, wherever it is located
- Access a remote inventory of all construction equipment
- Measure the usage rate of each piece of connected equipment
- Monitor the correct delivery of equipment to construction sites.
- Identify logistical bottlenecks to optimise management.
- My Omniscient for more efficient construction sites
Speed, efficiency, scalability, flexibility... a four-part guarantee
The advantages in terms of speed of development are obvious for Nicolas Lemaire: ‘Dedicated to the IoT, the Kuzzle backend embeds advanced technological bricks such as geofencing, which allows us to transform the collected data into useful and actionable data for on-site teams. ‘The first project implemented showed the Bouygues Construction teams that we could integrate various geolocation solutions, display them on a map, and use the data within just one week!’
Kuzzle IoT will automatically follow the increase in construction sites connected by Omniscient for Bouygues Construction.
A product of Bouygues Construction’s entrepreneurship programme, Omniscient is a service solution based on asset tracking and management for the construction industry. Built around an application, the solution connects IoT sensors of various technologies in order to provide geolocation, inventory, and real-time alerts for monitored resources.
