Smart Structures – Smart Assets

IoT mesh network enables monitoring of equipment and structures

Our flexible, innovative IoT mesh network brings considerable benefits to businesses in a host of industries.

Connecting Sensors to Structures and Large Assets allows Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance.

Our wireless sensors create a lightweight monitoring solutions that can be battery or even solar powered.

Traditional sensors are cabled, making them laborious and costly to install and monitor. Our sensors can be implanted quickly and easily in far more numerous locations.  They can be retrofitted to existing sensors to create a new network of connectivity or provide a new standalone network. Either way they can deliver a constant flow of information such as performance data.

Traditional sensors are cabled, making them laborious and costly to install and monitor. Our sensors can be implanted quickly and easily in far more numerous locations, and they deliver a constant flow of information.

The performance of a structure is, therefore, monitored at regular intervals. This enables any deformation to be identified at an early stage rather than when a failure occurs, which delivers a significant cost saving for the business or owner concerned.

This delivers significant cost saving for the business or owner concerned and can increase safety too.

By fitting inter-connected sensors in multiple points we can gauge the strain being exerted on, and resultant performance of, numerous pieces of equipment and constructions.

These include:

  • Bridges
  • Stadium roofs
  • Buildings
  • Cranes
  • Infrastructure (Rail)

Pilot Scheme:

Port of Felixstowe

We are working with Cambridge University and Hutchinson Ports in Port of Felixstowe to create an AI powered Predictive Maintenance solution for the powerful Quayside Cranes.

These cranes are 65 meters high and can lift 80 Tonnes in a single lift, they are operationally under intense mechanical strain.

Blue Mesh have created and fitted temperature, vibration, acoustic, camera imaging, accelerometer, and shock sensors across the cranes to make a Digital Twin for the Cambridge University Engineers to analyse and make maintenance and failure predictions from.

The sensors are easily fitted and connected via our IoT mesh network into the AI machine using a private 5G network.

Port of Felixstowe will be the largest UK port to deploy 5G technology and AI to increase operational productivity, efficiency and safety across its core operations.

Smarter Buildings

Blue Mesh is developing a wireless strain gauge and vibration solution connected to AI via MESH networking for SMART Buildings - this improves structure data - constantly monitored via AI - to deliver prior notification of deformation and prevent potential unexpected collapse

Blue Mesh are developing sensors that identify solutions for the following physical parameters;

  1. Vibration
  2. Accelerometer / Gyroscope
  3. Temperature
  4. Shock
  5. Strain Gauge
  6. Acoustic Sensors
  7. Environment - Temperature, Humidity, Volatile Components, etc.
  8. Image - Camera
