Smart Marking Utility Infrastructure with RFID

Pre Conference Session
Accidental damage hits to underground utility lines cause delays, resulting in exposure to dangerous and possibly life-threatening situations, in addition to increased costs. Berntsen International, a manufacturer and supplier of survey markers, survey monuments, utility markers and related accessories, is using RFID technology to provide a more reliable method of marking and locating these underground utilities. Berntsen developed the InfraMarker System, which integrates UHF RFID and precision GPS magnetic and locating technologies with smartphone-based asset-management software, enabling users to locate and identify underground utility points. Learn how the firm is employing RFID technology in a system that benefits users by saving time workers otherwise spend locating utilities, and by providing better data, while increasing safety.
