This comprehensive integration will allow us to detect and analyze various aspects of the infrastructure, including structural integrity, weather conditions, cracks, vibrations and anomalies. These insights will play a crucial role in informing ongoing planning and maintenance programs. The impact of this effort will extend across a wide range of applications benefiting stakeholders in many sectors worldwide.
Australian company Vracity creates digital twins for buildings and infrastructure by collecting and combining accurate information using technologies such as 3D laser scanners, drones, world-leading ground penetrating radar (GPR) for methodology and validation of sensors, cameras and other IoT-related devices.
The digital twin, a 3D representation of the 'built', allows teams to solve problems efficiently without having to travel to a specific location. Vracity provides project managers, quality control teams, construction managers, and stakeholders with an almost 100% accurate site status.
Swedish Brinja and Cambridge UK-based Wyld Networks technology will add on-site sensors with satellite connectivity in low Earth orbit. Wyld will provide network management via its Wyld Fusion platform and Brinja's sensors and scalable app development will give end users access to information from the ground.
"Many key infrastructure assets lie outside the mobile network," said Alastair Williamson, CEO of Wyld Networks. "The partnership with Vracity and Brinja provides an excellent opportunity to combine digital twin technology with IoT via satellite to address the needs of digitizing built assets in remote locations."
"Saudi Arabia ranks fourth globally in terms of digital readiness and second among G20 countries," said Abdul Elbilly, CEO of Vracity. "Saudi Arabia is rapidly adopting IoT technology, especially in infrastructure projects with rapid growth and a market volume of US$17.12 billion by 2028*. Vracity, Wyld Networks, and Brinja have combined their strengths to offer a comprehensive IoT solution to meet this demand."
"Maintaining infrastructure assets at scale is complex," says Xavier Leon, CEO of Brinja AB. "Together with Wyld Networks and Vracity, we can break down the data to the end user so they can make the right decisions proactively."
