Advanced Sway Detection System

Advanced Sway Detection System

SAPHI revolutionized the way telecommunication tower asset owners monitor and extend the value of their assets. In an age where consistent and efficient telecommunication is vital, the role of maintaining the integrity and efficiency of telecommunication towers is paramount.

What Was The Problem?

Indara faced challenges with their telecommunication towers. Traditional methods of stress assessment, which utilized photos and drawings, were not only outdated but also resource-intensive. There was a significant financial burden from manual tower stress assessments, which also became increasingly inaccurate with the transition from 3G to 4G and now, 5G. The need to manually inspect towers, coupled with overly conservative measures, was resulting in higher costs, sub-optimal operational efficiency, and missed revenue opportunities.

What Was The Solution?

SAPHI engineered an advanced sway detection solution tailored for asset integrity. Using state-of-the-art sensors, our system provides Indara with real-time tower structural insights, allowing them to maximize tower load by adding new customers, consequently boosting revenue. This not only enhances the capacity for adding more customers per tower but also introduces predictive maintenance schedules and immediate alerts for potential structural anomalies. With this newfound intelligence, Indara can judiciously space out their maintenance, shifting from fixed periods to a more “as-needed” approach, which further amplifies cost efficiencies.

What Were The Outcomes?

  • Maximized tower loadings for increased revenue.
  • Real-time structural insights enabled.
  • Predictive maintenance schedules introduced.
  • Immediate alerts for structural anomalies.
  • Shifted to “as-needed” maintenance, cutting costs.
  • Enhanced capacity for more tower customers.

What Skills Did SAPHI Use To Implement The Solution?

To realize the AI-powered crop yield tracking solution, SAPHI harnessed the collective knowledge of our interdisciplinary team of computer, electrical, and software engineers. The project leveraged a broad spectrum of our core competencies:

  • Embedded microcontroller programming.
  • Creation of robust and encrypted data communication channels.
  • Sway detection sensor integration.
  • Data visualisation.

What Support Did SAPHI Offer After Completion?

SAPHI provides customised packages to support the full system development life cycle and implementation of upgrades to support the evolving needs of our clients and their customers.
