Running a successful construction project needs comprehensive and accurate choreography to be on target, both design- and cost-wise. Carlson HeartBeat lets you do that. It provides machine-to-machine communications with or without a link to the office. “HeartBeat allows everyone to be in sync throughout the project,” says Steve Weber, V.P. of Positioning and Machine Control at Carlson Software and one of the developers of HeartBeat. “It gives those in the office near real time conditions from machines.” Record keeping is kept up-to-date with high level and reliable machine/office file synchronization routines for project, logging, and machine configuration. ‘Proximity Bubbles’ let both operators and foremen know when machines are working close together.
