The infrastructure of a city is its lifeline for quality of life, as well as economic growth and development. Infrastructure of a city can include both hard and soft infrastructure requirements such as transportation, energy the production of and electrical grids throughout the city, health and education, water facilities, public safety and/or IT services.
For anyone who is a part of the management of a city, building, facility, warehouse, or other pieces of infrastructure that uses electricity and water, they are well acquainted with the high cost of utilities as well as the difficulties that can come with maintaining them. Utility workers are responsible for a wide variety of tasks including various construction duties, installation, repair and maintenance of mains, service lines, meters, hydrants, and other apparatuses. They are responsible for ensuring water and electricity throughout the city, building or facility runs smoothly and efficiently. Should a problem arise, they are the first to respond.
Construction projects are an incredibly intricate and complex undertaking that requires hours upon hours of manual labor and even more time planning, coordinating, and communicating with all involved team members. Professionals in this industry know that manual work is only a fraction of the effort that goes into the completion of a project.
The latest from the DT Research line of purpose built tablets is the DT301X-TR Rugged Tablet, a lightweight military-grade tablet designed to enhance the precision of measurements for 3D surveying, underground utilities mapping, bridge and construction inspections, and crime/crash scene reconstruction.
Construction costs are constantly inflated due to cost overruns due to poor time management, injuries on the construction site, and delays caused by lack of real time communication and data. Rugged tablets can help minimize workplace hazards and accidents, keep track of workers on the site and visiting civilians, organize tasks, share information, manage vendors, and post updates and important notices.
