Trimble is excited to announce a new line of Geotech sensors powered by Worldsensing.
The new line of sensors include a biaxial tilt node that measures tilt in two directions, it is great for reading tilt on structures such as walls or retaining walls, rails, and foundations. It has an integrated laser tilt meter, which can also measure biaxial tilt however it has a built-in laser distance reader, meaning it can measure the distance between the sensor, the next structure or the wall. For example if you had the sensor mounted in a tunnel it would be able to measure the convergence and understand how that wall behaves.
There is a five channel vibrating wire data logger which is used with external sensors, for example a piezometer, shape array, water level or crack meter or anything with an analog or digital sensor.
All of the sensors are IoT devices where they can communicate over a long range radio to the gateway. The gateway then communicates either via ethernet connection or 4g cell modem. Once it’s on the internet, the gateway has a direct link with t40 web therefore the gateways built-in cloud portal connects the software to mobility control and allows you to receive the data online. You can then use the data to visualise, customise charts and analyse the data for reports.
With t40 web you can set up an unlimited number of project sites. For example if you were to have several tilt meters at one construction site or project area, where things are moving, you can easily add another project site. This means if you have more sensors, another gateway come in or if you’re running total stations on one and geotechnical on the other, you can have different sites in t40 web with different accounts and different deliverables that can easily be managed in one place.

Loadsensing is being used in the extension of the U5 metro line. The project aims to provide public transport for a new city district.
The Fornebu Line, the largest transport project in Oslo in over 20 years, uses Loadsensing wireless data nodes to collect and transmit data.
Terra Vermessungen has opted to use a Loadsensing wireless system and geotechnical instruments in the construction of the Eppenburg Tunnel.
The Grand Paris Métro project is an expansion scheme which required data loggers provided by Worldsensing to transmit data from 6000 sensors.
