Deterioration of structure is due to improper design, modification, fire, weathering effects like earthquake, flooding and impact of wind on high rise, and humidity and moisture causing corrosion and further weakening the structure.
Many serious accidents leading to collapse of buildings has resulted in loss of human life. Structural Audit is an overall health and performance checkup of a building, like a doctor examining a patient.
The purpose of Routine Monitoring is :
To save human life and buildings.
To understand the condition of building.
To find critical areas to repair immediately.
To comply with statutory requirements.
To enhance life cycle of structure by suggesting preventive and corrective measures, like repairs and retrofitting.
VOC and Other combustion gases can be detected on real time basis.
Ventilation Effectiveness and Thermal Comfort
Temp, humidity, Air flow management.
Fire and Smoke Detection
AUM_Fire is extremely sensitive that captures release of smoke even from cigarette. With clear line of sight, distance to monitor fire or smoke is not a limiting factor.
A building fire can lead to serious consequences - even a small fire can grow in seconds unless quickly suppressed.
Fire and security systems are critical to site safety.
Photonic systems can help ensure proper evacuation and limit the spread of fire, reducing damage and increasing the safety of personnel.
AUM is integrated in Robot that is robust and portable. The integrated system not only checks every part of duct but also cleans. This makes it practical and simple and with low implementation costs.
AUM Duct gives the opportunity of planning maintenance intervention by limiting it only when standard HVAC working conditions need to be restored.
AUM Duct allows independently evaluating the cleaning state of both plant ducts and filters. It is extremely flexible, automatic, low-cost, and able to provide a complete check of the system (filters and air ducts).
The Advanced Photonic Sensor that is Non-Imaging / Non-Acoustic Sensors VEDA, has monitoring capabilities for remote surveillance, sensing, inferring and enabling alert for any type of intrusion without any constraint of visibility during Fog, Smog, Mist etc. and also runs 24/7/365 Day or Night.
Target activity produces ground acoustic vibration. Weight, speed, direction and distance of the target is recorded by VEDA with geo spatial information.
VEDA identifies and classifies cross-border intrusion and tailgating threat, in real time and communicates to Command and Control. Thus, enabling Cross line detection / perimeter fencing.
The system can also intelligently distinguish between Vehicles, Human and Animal Activity.
Taller the building is, the more sensitive it is to wind loads.
Tall buildings, average wind speed increases with height, and the gustiness, or different combinations of eddies (circular movement of wind), decreases with height.
Turbulence buffeting (strong, repeated assaults of wind) can affect tall buildings or towers.
The challenges associated with the effects of wind on a structure are complex, and if not correctly assessed and considered, they can contribute to the instability of buildings.
SAMIRA is single laser Sensor that can monitor and capable of remotely monitoring the wind parameters (speed, direction, velocity), temperature, humidity, particulate material, solar radiation, at different predefined height intervals.
The measurement range covered by SAMIRA is 10mm to 5 Km in radius.
Right time monitoring health and investing all the risk areas, critical areas of building and Structures using Photonic sensing technologies will result in :
Immediate attention and recommends for corrective and preventive actions.
Covering the structural analysis of the existing frame and
Pinpoints the weak structural areas for static, wind & earthquake loads.
CATS Real time Structural Health Monitoring, Environment (indoor and Outdoor) monitoring, Security system, Bacteria and Virus monitoring with Big data analytical has the power not only to automate buildings but also to make them truly adaptive, smart, and agile, with the use of CATS AI analytics helping to improve operations, reduce inefficiencies, and lower costs across building platforms in a wide range of industries, residential, business complex, etc.
Burj Kalifa, Pagcor Tower, Pingan International Finance Center, Tsing Ma Bridge are monitored by more than 100s of sensors respectively. The nos can reduce to 10% once CATS Vibration and Condition Monitoring sensor for Structural Health Monitoring are installed.
CATS Photonic sensing Technologies cumulatively can help improve BMS platform functions in three ways through analytics built into the platform, via analytics embedded in equipment, and from supplemental analytics software intended to augment specific building operations, such as energy management, comfort control, or predictive maintenance.
Photonic system is integrated with fire safety, perimetry security, access control, and video surveillance, control of various building processes and operations could be achieved, preventing incidents that could disrupt production and negatively affect business.
