Protection and safety of on-site workers

As part of the anti-COVID measures, Bouygues measures occupancy by zone in real time, encouraging on-site staff to respect social distancing guidelines

Kuzzle was chosen to develop an IoT platform dedicated to the social distancing at Bouygues’ construction sites.

Omniscient, incubated by Bouygues Construction, was developed as an IoT solution based on the Kuzzle IoT platform and on the deployment of Abeeway sensors, in the form of badges, used to monitor and limit occupancy around the site.
This system is based on the principle of anonymised data, which accelerates the adoption of social distancing through alerting and allows for the creation of specific or limited density monitored work areas. The tool warns workers in real time when the occupancy density is too high, helping reduce the risk of contamination.

Connected construction sites

« The technical challenge was to find a technology capable of managing entries and exits in real time. On average, the server receives a location every 1.3 seconds. It is therefore necessary to constantly count the number of chips per area. This is where the features of the Kuzzle IoT platform have served us well»

Security through indoor geolocalisation

Omniscient provides on-site teams with anonymized key data on the number of visitors to the site accessible in real time on the platform.

Preventive mode

Real-time display of results at the entrance to each area on the application as a preventive measure to ensure that the number of people does not exceed the set threshold.

Reactive mode

If the threshold is exceeded for more than fifteen minutes, a supervisor is notified by e-mail or SMS to intervene and enforce social distancing.

Analysis mode

Management can access the attendance history of workers on a dashboard and notify them if they have been in contact with those who have tested positive for Covid-19.

Anonymised data and connectivity

In practice, Omniscient provides site teams with key anonymised data on site area traffic, accessible in real time from the platform and the application thanks to connected chips installed on staff badges.
These chips communicate wirelessly via a network of connected, and portable 2.4 GHz beacons installed in the ceiling of each zone, creating a real time overview of traffic and occupancy. The badges can be used for about 12 months without charging.

Development in 5 weeks

The Kuzzle IoT open-source platform allows us to create particularly complex backend functionalities in record time. The project teams used the Koncorde real-time filter engine natively available in the IoT platform. Within one single platform, Kuzzle IoT offers a multi-protocol API toolkit, advanced functionalities, powerful tools compatible with multiple devices, and multiple IoT networks to meet many use cases, while ensuring a level of security and total control of the platform.
