In collaboration with the home telecommunications subsidiary of Bouygues, the Construction branch of the group is experimenting with 5G in uses on construction sites.

Exam

Construction companies have many requirements, including regulatory requirements, for monitoring many elements. The use of IoT is fairly standard, for example Bouygues Travaux Publics makes the monitoring of earth dumpers more reliable and dematerialized by relying on a low-consumption LoRa network. But the arrival of 5G makes it possible to obtain the same effects on public infrastructure. Bouygues Telecom and Bouygues Construction have thus announced their collaboration around 5G experiments in uses on construction sites.

The two companies thus cite in the uses planned in the short term: “5G will, for example, make it possible to transmit more easily, and in a synchronous manner, information to site employees: weather alerts, delivery delays, modifications of plans, availability of equipment. , positioning of equipment on the site, etc. “. Uses are also provided for in the control of machinery, in particular cranes: “the transmission of data between the crane and a remote control station on the ground” allowing the operator to be left on the ground for his own safety but also that of others. responders through better monitoring of the load’s “point of impact”.

After the first tests, the stability, speed and throughput offered by 5G were validated for the envisaged uses. Since November 2020, Bouygues Construction has been carrying out a research program with Lextan on the assisted driving of machines thanks to 5G transmission as well as on the development of image processing and augmented reality.
