OTTAWA, Canada: Giatec Scientific Inc., market leader in innovative concrete testing technologies, has been shortlisted for the 2020 IoT Global Awards. Nominated for AI supported and IoT-based wireless concrete sensor technology, Giatec is among the top twelve industry & construction IoT innovators worldwide for 2020.
Giatec is revolutionizing the construction industry by bringing concrete testing technologies and real-time data collection to jobsites. Combining wireless concrete sensors and mobile apps, the company has developed smart IoT-based technologies, like SmartRock® concrete maturity sensors, for real-time monitoring of concrete properties. In 2020, the company introduced their re-engineered sensor, SmartRock 3, which takes concrete testing to a whole new level. In addition to an update in the sensor’s design, activation, installation, and wireless signal range, SmartRock 3 has been equipped with dual-temperature monitoring capabilities.
SmartRock is the most widely used wireless concrete sensor, currently being implemented in over 6,200 construction projects across 45 countries worldwide. As the first truly wireless sensor introduced to the market in 2015, SmartRock is the leading concrete maturity sensor for accurate monitoring of concrete curing and hardening. Unlike time-consuming and error-prone break tests, or cumbersome wired sensors, Giatec’s patented maturity sensor uses a highly accurate ASTM-approved testing method. Together with the Giatec 360™ platform, and SmartHub™ remote monitoring system, this has enabled faster, safer, and more economical concrete construction.
