Upgrade to support wireless monitoring systems
Senceive has announced the improved interface to the Trimble 4D control software. Trimble is one of the world’s leading providers of software and hardware solutions helping connect the physical and digital worlds of geospatial and construction industries.
Following the release of Trimble’s 4D Control version 5.0 upgrade, the widely used software now fully supports Senceive’s wireless monitoring systems, streamlining the configuration process for existing Trimble 4D Control users and delivering real-time data from a multitude of instrumentation to one single platform.
The software will now support both of Senceive’s wireless platforms, GeoWAN, the company’s latest wireless platform that offers long-range monitoring up to 15km, and FlatMesh wireless mesh system used for dense sensor distributions and intelligent monitoring solutions.
Senceive’s wireless monitoring solutions provide reliable and robust, long life, precise wireless monitoring solutions for a wide range of applications including; construction, rail, tunnels, buildings, bridges, mines, quarries and many more, including the ability to integrate with almost any geotechnical/structural sensor.
Whilst Senceive offer their own basic secure web-based data visualisation platform called WebMonitor to clients if requested, the highly versatile data from its sensor nodes has always allowed visualisation on a variety of higher-powered third-party software. The recent major upgrade of Trimble’s 4D Control software now allows their users to fully and conveniently monitor multiple sites from this single, customisable platform that not only enables improved visualisation, but can perform rigorous analysis and provide alerts.
Alongside the many other types of data that Trimble devices provide, such as from Total Stations, GNNS reference receivers and a multitude of other geotechnical and structural sensors. The breadth of different datasets can now provide project managers, surveyors and engineers, using Trimble 4D Control, with a comprehensive understanding of the ground or asset conditions to enable rapid decision making and enhance predictions to support immediate identification of the early signs of failure or fatigue
Of the announcement, Trimble Monitoring Solution’s Business Director Lisa Wetherbee said: "The recent release of version 5.0 focused on simplifying workflows and reducing the time needed to set up a monitoring project. The integration with Senceive builds on our commitment to continuously enhance the user experience when using Trimble 4D Control. By adding support for more wireless monitoring systems, we are making it easier to access real-time data from a wide variety of geotechnical sensors available for monitoring projects around the world.”
Graham Smith, CEO of Senceive, added: “Senceive is determined to make all its clients in civil engineering and mining operations as efficient and safe as possible. For each and every one of the industries we work in, safety is the number one priority, and with Trimble’s 4D Control software our Intelligent Monitoring Solutions (IMS) only become ever more efficient and easier to use. Trimble’s software helps engineers by providing accurate results in real-time alongside their other instrumentation and monitoring data, aiding their monitoring efforts and enhancing their safety even in the most challenging environments.
"We have several further significant product launches in the coming months, including this week at Intergeo, that will reinforce our position as the pre-eminent company for innovations that support and enable our civil engineer clients in making better decisions on their geotechnical and structural assets.”
