IMCRC congratulates Monitum on the launch of its automated monitoring service – Kurloo.

Designed and developed in collaboration with Queensland University of Technology (QUT) as part of a three-year IMCRC co-funded manufacturing research project, Kurloo is set to transform the way industry measures displacement.

By harnessing the Internet of Things (IoT), low-medium-end Global Navigation Satellite System sensors and cloud computing technology, Kurloo provides precise and accurate insights to help manage risks around environments, buildings and structures.

According to Monitum’s Managing Director Lee Hellen, Monitum’s cost-effective product has extensive applications across industries such as infrastructure, transport and mining.

“Geospatial data is critical to the delivery of every construction project, but it’s often costly and labour intensive to gather,” he said.

“To solve this challenge, we’ve leveraged Australia’s considerable research and development capabilities to create an end-to-end displacement monitoring service.

“Kurloo provides the frequent, consistent and precise readings needed to help manage risk, and does so at a fraction of the price of traditional monitoring equipment.”
