Phase III: Smart Proximity Work Zone Safety Technology Deployment

The goal of this research is to develop a low-cost and scalable smart IoT proximity alert system using Bluetooth mobile sensing technology for alerting workers and equipment operators in proximity hazard situations in highway work zones. Three major objectives of this project include: (1) Design and develop an Equipment Protection Unit (EPU) and a Personal Protection Unit (PPU) for practical use for proximity hazard detection and alert at highway workzone; (2) Develop a cloud server system for automated data collection and analysis; and (3) Deploy the developed hardware and software systems at GDOT’s on-going projects for system performance effectiveness measurement.
