Senceive Wireless Platforms Supported By Trimble 4D Control Software

Expanded Capabilities Reduce Setup Time for Senceive’s GeoWAN® and FlatMesh® systems

LONDON, UK, Sept. 17, 2019 — Senceive Ltd, the UK based leading global provider of wireless remote condition monitoring solutions, has today announced the improved interface to the Trimble 4D control software. Trimble is one of the world’s leading providers of software and hardware solutions helping connect the physical and digital worlds of geospatial and construction industries.

Following the release of Trimble’s 4D Control version 5.0 upgrade, the widely used software now fully supports Senceive’s wireless monitoring systems, streamlining the configuration process for existing Trimble 4D Control users and delivering real-time data from a multitude of instrumentation to one single platform. The software will now support both of Senceive’s wireless platforms, GeoWAN®, the company’s latest wireless platform that offers long-range monitoring up to 15km, and FlatMesh® wireless mesh system used for dense sensor distributions and intelligent monitoring solutions.

Senceive’s wireless monitoring solutions provide reliable and robust, long life, precise wireless monitoring solutions for a wide range of applications including; construction, rail, tunnels, buildings bridges, mines, quarries and many more, including the ability to integrate with almost any geotechnical/structural sensor. Whilst Senceive offer their own basic secure web-based data visualisation platform called WebMonitor to clients if requested, the highly versatile data from its sensor nodes has always allowed visualisation on a variety of higher-powered third-party software. The recent major upgrade of Trimble’s 4D Control software now allows their users to fully and conveniently monitor multiple sites from this single, customisable platform that not only enables improved visualisation, but can perform rigorous analysis and provide alerts. Alongside the many other types of data that Trimble devices provide, such as from Total Stations, GNNS reference receivers and a multitude of other geotechnical and structural sensors. The breadth of different datasets can now provide project managers, surveyors and engineers, using Trimble 4D Control, with a comprehensive understanding of the ground or asset conditions to enable rapid decision making and enhance predictions to support immediate identification of the early signs of failure or fatigue.

Of the announcement, Trimble Monitoring Solution’s Business Director Lisa Wetherbee said: “The recent release of version 5.0 focused on simplifying workflows and reducing the time needed to set up a monitoring project. The integration with Senceive builds on our commitment to continuously enhance the user experience when using Trimble 4D Control. By adding support for more wireless monitoring systems, we are making it easier to access real-time data from a wide variety of geotechnical sensors available for monitoring projects around the world.” Trimble press release link: https://www.trimble.com/news/release.aspx?id=091719b 

Graham Smith, CEO of Senceive, said: “Senceive is determined to make all its clients in civil engineering and mining operations as efficient and safe as possible. For each and every one of the industries we work in, safety is the number one priority, and with Trimble’s 4D Control software our Intelligent Monitoring Solutions (IMS) only become ever more efficient and easier to use. Trimble’s software helps engineers by providing accurate results in real-time alongside their other instrumentation and monitoring data, aiding their monitoring efforts and enhancing their safety even in the most challenging environments.”

We have several further significant product launches in the coming months, including this week at Intergeo, that will reinforce our position as the pre-eminent company for innovations that support and enable our civil engineer clients in making better decisions on their geotechnical and structural assets.”

Senceive recognised as SME of the Year at the Rail Partnership Awards 2019

We are delighted to announce that we have been recognised as SME of the Year at the Rail Partnership Awards 2019. The company was picked from a strong nationwide field of the leading suppliers to Network Rail who had demonstrated excellence and innovation within the rail industry

During a ceremony taking place at The Vox, near the NEC, in Birmingham, and presented by Countryfile’s Julia Bradbury, the awards were presented across 14 categories. Senceive was recognised for supporting Network Rail to achieve its excellence and innovation objectives in areas including; safety, sustainability, putting passengers first and community engagement. In addition, Senceive was recognised for its commitment to developing successful partnerships within the rail industry.

The past 12 months has been incredibly significant for Senceive as the business continues to grow and with the development and release of innovative and industry leading products and solutions. This award recognises much hard work from the Senceive team to support Network Rail in their objectives of achieving safer working environments and fostering links with strong and innovative UK businesses.
The award follows on from recognition at the recent civil engineering industry awards where Senceive were identified as one of the top 20 SME businesses to follow in the UK. Senceive strives to be the very best intelligent monitoring solutions provider to the rail industry; working very closely with our supply chain partners and customers in order to listen and develop products that fit with the rail industry’s requirements for tough but easy to deploy remote condition monitoring of all asset classes. Over 40% of Senceive’s team is dedicated to R&D to ensure we continuously innovate in order to provide smart but practical solutions at great value for our customers in the UK and overseas. We are thrilled to be recognised by the Rail Partnership Awards and Network Rail as a validation to the whole team’s hard work and dedication towards innovation. We would also wish to thank our many monitoring company partners and distributors, without whom none of this would have been possible.

Over the past 12 months Senceive global revenues have grown by over 80% with similar growth expect to continue in 2019 and beyond. The company now has a team of over
40 people which enables Senceive to offer round the clock customer support, together with offices opening in key overseas markets such as Australia in order to support what is a truly international business. The company innovation roadmap has most notably seen the launch of three major products and solutions to help clients over the past year. The first is the Optical Displacement Sensor (ODS) with a highly accurate laser to measure sub mm sliding movements up to 150m whilst at the same time measuring rotation using a triaxial sensor. The second development is the launch of GeoWAN®, Senceive’s latest wireless platform that offers long-range monitoring up to 15km and complements its existing FlatMesh® wireless mesh system used for dense sensor distributions. The third is our Intelligent Monitoring Solution (IMS) which build upon experiences learnt across many deployments on Network Rail earthworks, where faster and triggered reporting and images are essential to minimise risk and improve safety.
