Safety harness with geo-tracking for the prevention of accidents at construction sites.

Reference number
Coordinator 4light AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 100 000
Project duration March 2017 - June 2017
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The objective and purpose of the project is to increase the safety in the construction industry by developing a safety harness that informs the bearer, and the bearer´s surrounding, when in areas where accidents are often occurring and thus change insecure behavior at construction sites.

Expected results and effects

The initial project idea has been clarified and further focused, both technically and commercially, and the initial project group has been further developed with a partner for the technical development (geo-tracking) and a partner representing potential end-users.

Planned approach and implementation

A pre-study has been carried out investigating the preconditions of the project, allowing the initial idea to be clarified as regards e.g. technical development. As a result of the pre-study, yet another industry - the mining industry - has emerged as potentially interesting industry for the solution to be developed.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
