Advanced Technologies For Construction Equipment3Global positioning system3.1IntroductionNowadays site construction and specially the mega projects are suffering from thepossibility of collision between equipment while performing different operations, such collisionwill incur an additional cost, time impact, and injuries, therefore, one state-of-the-arttechnological advancement is being incorporated in site construction equipment in order toimpede the opportunity for collision, this technology is Global positioning system “GPS” andwireless communications[ CITATION Amr03 \l 1033 ].In addition to the above addressed use of GPS for collision detection betweenequipment in site, GPS is utilized for recording exact and sufficient data of these interactions ofall resources (labors, equipment, and materials) in construction project which cooperateconstantly, these recordings are fundamental for breaking down any development siteoperation. In addition to the above, productivity examination and activities inspecting methodshave given better outcomes when monitoring and controlling the site construction equipmentby applying the GPS in projects, as well as, diminishing the possibility of theft of equipmentwhich result in time and cost impact[ CITATION Pra13 \l 1033 ](seeFigure 1).Figure1: Identifying equipment location via GPS[ CITATION Nip13 \l 1033 ]Omar Mloukhieh Page |2
