SBAS Test-bed project – Construction safety

An 18 month trial of high accuracy satellite positioning technology known as a Satellite-Based Augmentation System, or SBAS, for the Australasian region assessed the economic, social and environmental benefits of improved positioning technologies. Aptella was one of 27 demonstrator projects, and investigated the use of SBAS signals worn on workers’ hard hats or arm-bands and machinery to improve health and safety outcomes and site efficiencies.
