Opportunity Solution Business value RED SEA GIGA PROJET CONNECTS ITS CONSTRUCTION WORKFORCE AND VEHICLES IN REAL-TIME • The giga project is expected to contribute $5.86 billion per year to the Saudi GDP upon completion, at which point it will cover 28,000 km2 (11,000 sq mi) of pristine islands, sweeping desert dunes, mountain ranges and volcanoes. • The first phase will complete by 2023 when 3,000 hotel rooms will be constructed along with an international airport, marina and recreation centers. The number of visitors will be capped at one million people every year in line with environmental commitments. • Abeeway smart badges and tracking devices allow TRSDC to identify workers and vehicles and secure the construction area against unauthorized individual and vehicle access. Individual access rights will be granted based on role, responsibility, category and group of workers. In addition, the possibility of identifying vehicles remotely, geo- fencing perimeters and setting up alerts based on worker and vehicle access breaches will further enhance security. • A panic button will enable workers in distress to send an SOS signal back to TRSDC's security and emergency response center, allowing response teams to be sent directly to the location of the worker without losing potentially life-saving time. In fact, TRSDC recently opened their Central Medical Facility which will provide the highest medical care quality and assistance for those living and working on site during the construction phase. • From a process efficiency perspective, all tagged vehicles will have an estimated time of arrival (ETA) to ensure that there are no delays between required tasks. In addition, alerts will be triggered for idle workers or vehicles to enable improved worker supervision. • The Abeeway long autonomy devices allow continuous usage for months and years thanks to LoRaWAN connectivity. The devices work both indoors and outdoors due to their multi-technology geolocation system, integrating GPS, Abeeway's patented Low-power GPS, WiFi Sniffing and Bluetooth Low Energy. TRSDC particularly values the Low Power GPS. • The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind the world's most ambitious regenerative tourism project, is implementing an extensive IoT safety solution for its construction workforce and fleet of vehicles at its site on the west coast of Saudi Arabia. • The solution is a consortium formed by MachinesTalk, a regional leader in IoT Solutions and Licensed IoT – Virtual Network Operator (IoT-VNO) with and Actility, a global leader in IoT connectivity solutions, and smart wearable technology and wireless tagging solutions from Abeeway, an Actility subsidiary specialized in low-power geolocation.
