The core of the SmartPile® system is the embedded wireless sensor device - often referred to as the Embedded Data Collector or EDC - that is cast directly into concrete structural elements.  

The SmartPile device consists of a Dataport, which is a miniature battery-powered electronic unit that is embedded into a concrete element along with one or more Sensor packs.

The Dataport collects data from its attached Sensor packs and wirelessly transmits the data to a collection and data processing station. Current Sensor packs include combinations of accelometers, strain gages, and temperature probbes. The SmartPile® components are designed to survive in concrete from pouring to curing to severe construction processes (pile driving, for example) and beyond. 

A SmartPile®-enabled device arrives on site calibrated and ready for testing.  Setup and preparation time is minimal.

The embedded SmartPile® sensors system (specifically, the Dataport) provides wireless data to the SmartPile® Workstation that is carried by geotechnical engineers at the construction site.

 The SmartPile® Workstation computes real-time load capacity and other construction quality information in real-time during pile driving and other construction activities.  The software provides immediate results and can generate reports on site.
