Onset Sensor Project: Onset HOBO and InTemp Data Loggers (onsetcomp.com)
Onset is a company that specializes in providing data from their network of environmental sensors to clients interested in monitoring their environments (farmers, environmental researchers, etc.). Onset came to us looking for new industries to expand into, as well as what changes are necessary to be competitive within those industries. We met with them multiple times to better understand the things their sensors can monitor (temperature, windspeed, soil moisture, sunlight, etc.) as well as the methods in which that they relay that data to their clients. We toured their user interface, as well as assessed the limitations of their data visualization processes. Ultimately, we chose the construction industry because of our expertise in the field.
Problem: After diving into our research in the construction industry, we found heat incidents is a serious pain-point.
Solution: We are working with Onset to deploy sensors that monitor weather (temp, wind, humidity, etc.) that will alert construction workers when to take breaks and provides the construction company with a database for citation and insurance purposes.
