There are numerous sources of noise and vibration in any construction project, from small hand tools, to large machinery such as drills, pile drivers, excavators and lorries. There are different types of regulations, both national and local, which establish maximum authorised levels to ensure that such noise and vibration does not harm the environment. Continue reading
NIHON KASETSU Japan implemented a complete telemetric monitoring and control system in October 2016 for a major construction project in China. What was different about the project was that it required a system which was extremely robust, reliable and above all versatile; this was because of both the difficulties of the terrain and the variety of requirements demanded from the system by the final customer.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is used by various government agencies to quantify and communicate air quality to the public. It indicates the degree of air purity or pollution and the human health effects associated with this. Different countries have their own indices which correspond to different established air quality standards. Continue reading
Air pollution is caused by the emission to the atmosphere of certain substances which, alone or through chemical reaction, can damage human health and the environment.
The single pollutants causing most damage to ecosystems, human health and materials are nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur dioxide (SO2), ammonia (NH3), ground level ozone and airborne fine dust, known as particulate matter (PM). Continue reading
It is difficult to talk about mobile communication without thinking about that little well-known piece of plastic of slightly more than one square centimetre supplied for you by your mobile phone company, which gives you the “power” of being connected. And that’s because it’s been around from the very first mobile models until the latest. This piece of technology is called the SIM card. Continue reading
Telemetry, monitoring and control systems are integrated electronics systems that use sensors to obtain information about certain parameters within a remote environment, for later viewing and analysis. Certain actions can then be automatically or manually performed based on this analysis. Continue reading
