This is a brief introduction to one of our research projects—Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)-based smart alarming of tower crane hooks’ proximity. Safety performance in construction industry is becoming more and more important these days. Accidents involving tower cranes can easily cause casualties when they happen. we must pay more attention to this even if related accidents have decreased recently. We set our goal at trying to decrease the risks that workers get struck by a tower crane hook or the loads it's lifting. Then we decided to build a system named Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)-bas...
