Digging Activity Real-time Feedback and Alerts
How Do You Avoid Costly Damage to Utilities During Excavation?
UtilAlert™ – an innovative Notification System – is a “plug & play” excavator-mounted device, able to:
- Discern the movement of digging activities through on-board multiple axis inertial measurement units
- Capture the GPS location of the excavator
- Transmit the information to a real-time GIS-enabled database through the cellular network.
Software evaluates the excavator location and digging activity with mapping of any connected utility and 811 dig ticket boundaries. When the software identifies a high-risk utility at the location using GIS mapping, the device alerts the excavator operator directly and both contractor and utility damage prevention teams through mobile and desktop apps. All parties can act to prevent damage before it occurs.
UtilAlert™ is the only early warning system you’ll need for your utility excavation project. Our easy-to-use, plug, and play component utilize real-time data from GPS coordinates and data from connected utilities to protect buried utilities.
