Wirepas and WakeCap partnership ensures safe construction sites

Wirepas and WakeCap (US) have started a new partnership, with the focus in safety on construction sites. WakeCap uses Wirepas Mesh in it’s sensors, that are then attached to helmets. These sensors on the helmets then are able to extract sensor data, as well as track the location of the helmet.

“WakeCap is a great example of the exceptional value of Wirepas Mesh in an area where power is not available, and the radio environment is challenging and constantly changing. WakeCap has come up with a novel solution where the sensors are attached to safety helmets to provide location data and environmental data without building connectivity infrastructure.“ , Wirepas CEO Teppo Hemiä says.

WakeCap is an enterprise solution to improve construction safety & productivity through technology. It enables construction companies to have real-time field reporting by connecting & tracking materials, equipment, and most importantly workers at the construction site.

“WakeCap was able to reap the benefits of the optimized IoT solutions provided by Wirepas. Namely with regard to the scalability and reliability aspects of its offers that are crucial to us in connecting the construction site to ensure that every worker is safe and productive” – Hassan Albalawi, CEO & founder.

By using Wirepas Mesh Wakecap has been able to cut their development time and could come up with their sensors and app in a record time. Other benefits of choosing Wirepas include affordable deployment, extremely easy on-site installation and long battery life.
