BT has finished a project to trial RFID tagging in the construction industry. The system, believed to be the first of its type, uses RFID to monitor the condition and location of construction assets in transit around sites.
Ross Hall, chief executive of BT's Auto-ID Services division, said that in the past it had proved difficult to track assets around large construction sites.
This is due to the fact that construction sites are constantly changing, and lack power and wired communications. To overcome this BT is using technology from asset-tracking specialist OxLoc.
