Galloping urbanization, new infrastructure projects in crowded locations, plethoric transportation modes, challenging construction works, tunneling and demolition sites, are now more and more instrumented in so called smart cities environments. This also brings unrivalled challenges to civil and structural engineering works and requires lots of sensor data for situation assessment in real time.

These multiple sources of vibrations, root causes to human disturbances or potential structural damages, are extensively monitored to ensure acceptable levels for people nuisances mitigation, risk management and assets sustainability.

Syscom recognizes these needs and address them with an innovative vibration compliance solution, redeemed possible with the latest available and proven technologies driven by IoT low power integrated components and new LTE communication networks. Envision this new generation of autonomous motion recorders providing affordable sensors, cable free installation, smart & sleek monitoring services for structural health monitoring and human comfort evaluation.

Speak with an Expert

I’m very happy with the quality of the instrumentation and technical support from RST, as always. They worked with us from the initial stages of the project to ensure that we were fully prepared and equipped to use the RSTAR network for the first time. They delivered everything within the tight project time frame to ensure that there were no delays on site, and the submersible tilt meters looked like new even after over twelve months of being submerged in Thames water!
