Smart Geotech Co. showcases slope monitoring solution at CES 2023

Jan. 11, 2023

Smart Geotech Co. showcased their innovative slope-monitoring solution at CES 2023 in Las Vegas.

The company's IoT-based Smart Early Warning System for Predicting Slope Failure was selected as a CES 2023 Innovation Awards honoree in the Smart Cities product category. This system integrates innovative technology to provide a cost-effective real-time slope monitoring solution that can prevent disasters and save lives. 

As populations grow, so does the demand for new developments and housing projects on hillsides around the world. Unfortunately, these construction projects often come with an increased risk of landslide accidents due to unstable slopes. In order to mitigate this risk, Smart Geotech Co., Ltd developed the IoT-based Smart Early Warning System for Predicting Slope Failure that can provide real-time slope monitoring and warning alerts before a disaster occurs.

Smart Geotech's SWS System is revolutionizing the way slope collapses are measured and predicted. With its innovative combination of smart sensors, an IoT sensor node and an LTE network, the system can provide real-time measurements of slopes to a centralized server. The data is analyzed quickly, alerting responsible authorities to any changes or disturbances in real time -- a far cry from the previous methods of detection. Thanks to their advanced technology and cost efficiency, Smart Geotech's SWS System could potentially be a life-saving piece of technology.

The high-precision technology can detect micro displacements of the ground surface up to 0.01mm in contrast to the 5mm traditionally measured, providing precise results reliably and consistently. Construction and maintenance are made simple thanks to easy installation, through which supervisors have immediate and accurate notifications of any potential changes in slope conditions. IoT powers this cutting-edge technology, and with local data analysis, managers can access status updates from anywhere and at any time without hassle or added cost.
