The Increased Use Of Construction Machinery In The Industry Poses Challenges Of Safety And Regulation For The Site Workers. A Remote Monitoring System For The Construction Machinery Can Help In Avoiding Fatal Accidents Whilst Providing Continuous Sensor Information To The User. The Present Remote Controller Has Shortcomings Of Accessibility, Less Information Transfer, Longer Training Times, And Sizable Delays In Case Of Replacement. Smart Glasses Are Already A Booming Trend In The Industry In The Domain Of Worker Training And There Is A Need For Simultaneously Controlling And Monitoring Machinery Using The Portable Device. A Framework Is Proposed For Using The Smart Glasses To Provide a Network Relay Of The Construction Machinery With Its Digital Counterpart By Using The Concepts Of Artificial Reality And Connectivity Through The CPS To Minimize The Problems Of Safety And Communication. The Paper Summarizes The Solution By Using A Cyber-Physical System Along With The Latest Trend Of AR (Augmented Reality) To Control Unmanned Tower Cranes On The Location Using Smart Glasses And Digital Twin Technology. Future Research Can Be Oriented Towards Using This Concept For Other Construction Machinery.Read full article
