Abstract

Construction is recognized internationally as one of the information-intensive industry and subject to harsh conditions (e.g., rain and dust) and is often criticized for delivering projects late and over budget. Collection of detailed, accurate and a sufficient volume of information and timely delivery of them are vital to operating a well-managed and cost-efficient construction project. This paper investigates the fully automated data collection using integrated applications of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) technologies in the construction industry which focused on the real-time exchange of information between the construction site and off-site office, how this technology could change current practice. Therefore, the main objective of this study is to propose a system to improve efficiency and cost-effectiveness, practical communication and control among participants, and increase flexibility in terms of information delivery and response time on and off construction sites. Most of the used technologies in this research are commercially available and are inexpensive (RFID, GPS, GSM). Some application of advanced tracking and data storage technologies used in construction information management are discussed briefly.
