Information has been revealed about the anti-collision technology being deployed for the cranes at Museum of the Future’s site in Dubai.

Kanoo Cranes, a part of the UAE’s Kanoo Group, has supplied French firm SMIE’s anti-collision systems for the high-profile UAE project, according to Construction Week’s sister title PMV Middle East.

The SMIE ProSite suite at Museum of the Future’s site is a life management system that includes jobsite management software, sensors, and calculation functionalities.

Among its other features are centralised visibility of real-time crane movement; weather and crane activity history; remote bypass of anti-collision and quarantine of out-of-service cranes’ shared planning of crane use; and zone management.

Kanoo Cranes’ sales engineer for SMIE, Vineet Paul, said ProSite also simplifies set-up activities, reduces reconfiguration downtime, and improves operator control.

LED touch-screens are a part of SMIE’s ProSuite package for Museum of the Future, with the feature said to offer comprehensive views of the work environment. PMV Middle East reported that up to three anti-collision radio networks can be managed through a single system.
