Looking back at GEO Business 2019


On day 1, Dominic Kisz, Senceive’s International Business Development Manager for Central Europe, hosted a workshop on the many innovations in wireless RCM (Remote Condition Monitoring) launched in the past 12 months alone. Throughout his talk, Dominic highlighted Senceive’s leading position in the industry, as well as the innovative work that it continues to produce. Dominic also went into detail about the range of Senceive products on offer, including the wireless FlatMesh and GeoWAN platforms, as well as the unrivalled Triaxial Tilt Sensor Node, the Nano and Nano+ Triaxial Tilt Sensor Nodes, the Optical Displacement Sensor (ODS) and the new smart In-Place Inclinometer.

Day 2 saw Senceive sponsor the Instrumentation and Monitoring Seminar, where Peter Jones, Senceive’s International Business Development Manager for the APAC region, presented a very well received seminar talk on Network Intelligence and Smart Sensors (click here for more information) The talk drew over 60 audience members and it was certainly the most popular of the I&M presentations on the day.


The stand was extremely busy from friends and new potential partners from across the globe which is particular interest with Senceive operating in over 40 countries. We were also mentioned in a number of talks over the two days, but a special thanks goes to  Matthias Gropp, Director for Monitoring at Murphy Surveys, one of our key global Monitoring Company Partners, who discussed asset monitoring and one of the largest structural monitoring projects in Europe, possibly globally, where we are working together, and where they have deployed over 3000 of our FlatMesh wireless sensors. These are measuring strain, using a bespoke 12-channel Vibrating Wire unit, as well as deformation, temperature and crack movement over a wide distance on a large complex concrete structure. The wireless sensors could well be in place for up to 6-8 years and will surely be a showcase for structural monitoring and lessons learned for the Industry.

 

Overall, GEO Business 2019 was a huge success for Senceive. If you missed us at the event, and would like to learn more about how Seneceive is continuing to innovate within the industry, feel free to get in touch at info@senceive.com or call us on 0207 731 826

Recap: Instrumentation and Monitoring Conference 2019

On March 26th Senceive attended Ground Engineering’s Instrumentation and Monitoring Conference (I&M) at Cavendish Conference Centre, London. The event looks to encompass the leading minds from within the monitoring industry.

Since its last appearance at the event two years ago, Senceive has gone from strength to strength. In the past few months alone Senceive has released its Optical Displacement Sensor (ODS) product and GeoWAN wireless platform. There has also been a recent £750,000 investment from Birmingham Finance and full Network Rail acceptance for the FlatMesh product range. Now, returning as Gold Sponsors, Senceive played a prominent role at this year’s event.

At the conference, with a stand situated in a prime location across from newly announced partners, Sigicom, the company launched its IPI Wireless Interface Solution in collaboration with Soil Instruments.

In addition, Senceive also took part in two talks at the event. To begin with, the company’s Business Development Director, Aidan Laimbeer, discussed monitoring challenges and instrumentation with Tideway East Deputy I&M Manager, Stephen Diver. This was soon followed by a Sensor & Satellite Asset Alert and Management System (SSAAMS) panel, featuring Senceive Lead Engineer, Peter Graham.

Throughout the conference’s talks, Senceive also received special mentions from various speakers. Head of Specialist Monitoring Senior Technology and Innovation Manager at Amey, Andy Plumb, discussed a variety of Senceive projects; Jonathan Gammon, Advisor/Non-Executive Director for Geotechnical Observations Ltd, spoke at length about Senceive’s work on the Bexleyheath line at Barnehurst, and how it helped to avert a potential major issue; and Ignacio Menoyo, I&M Contracts Engineer at Ferrovial Laing O’Rourke (FLO), mentioned Senceive’s role in the Northern Line Extension;

After a busy day yesterday, tonight sees Senceive compete for two awards at the Construction News Specialists Awards. The company is nominated for ‘Equipment Specialist of the Year’ and ‘Innovation of the Year (non-contractor)’.

INTERGEO 2018 – Senceive stand proud in Frankfurt

Senceive were delighted to be exhibiting at this year’s INTERGEO conference in Frankfurt, Germany. Our stand was located opposite Leica/Hexagon where we showcased our latest innovations to our visitors through our live demos.  The three day event is the world’s largest conference and leading trade fair in the field of geodesy, spatial data and land management, which was an ideal event to introduce the visitors and fellow exhibitors to our newest innovations such as the GeoWAN long-range wireless platform and the Optical Displacement Sensor (ODS).

With a growing sales team, some attending for the event for the first time, we decided to have our largest stand yet in order to present live demos. Visitors were able to interact with our wireless solutions and view measurements instantaneously on a monitor due to the ultra-fast reporting rates that we offer. We had the pleasure of receiving 100s of visitors at our stand from across the globe and the introduction of our new GeoWAN platform, which can wirelessly transmit monitoring data upto 15Km and has the ability to transmit though buildings, and the ODS proved to be a big hit.

 

This year’s INTERGEO has certainly been a huge success for Senceive and we would like to thank all our friends and future clients who found the time to come and talk to us and support our efforts. We very much look forward to seeing you all at next year’s conference in Stuttgart, Germany.

Ground Engineering Transport Geotechnics 2018

Senceive were pleased to be exhibiting at Ground Engineering’s Transport Geotechnics conference in London yesterday. The conference gathered geotechnical leaders and specialists in the industry to discuss innovation and upcoming projects over the next five years. The first day of the event was a seminar where Senceive’s Aidan Laimbeer and TfL’s Neil Moss presented on: Whole life structural monitoring of segmentally lined tunnels using integrated sensors.

On the second day of the conference, Senceive had our own exhibition stand which ran live interactive demos throughout the day including our ODS (Optical Displacement Sensor), along with our ground-breaking wireless Nano+ triaxial tilt sensor and more. It was an insightful event looking into the technological developments impacting transport geotechnics and what it means for the industry as a whole. We were delighted to see old friends and make new ones within the industry. A big thank you for everyone who visited us.

Senceive and Transport for London delivered a fantastic presentation at the Smart Data and Monitoring Seminar

Aidan Laimbeer, Senceive and Neil Moss, Principal Tunnels Engineer at TfL presented on: Whole life structural monitoring of segmentally lined tunnels using integrated sensors.

This insightful talk focused on the ground-breaking embedment of Senceive’s wireless high precision sensors on the Northern Line Extension (NLE). Vibrating Wire strain gauges were used to monitor circumferential strain and Nano+ triaxial tilt sensors, which provide a repeatability of ±0.0005°, were used to monitor rotation.

This embedment of sensors offers whole life structural monitoring which allow measurement of built in stresses, and long-term seasonal performance to be determined remotely, therefore allowing informed judgement about the impact of external activities or even extending the useable life of a structure beyond its design life.

Sensors were able to provide consistent high-repeatability data within minutes of the installation of each segment, which will provide useful analysis for initial tunnel construction, as well as long term ongoing monitoring.

 

A special thanks to: TfL, VMT, Soil Instruments, Morgan Sindall and Ferrovial Laing O’Rourke for help with this ambitious new development.
