ISO 15143-1:2010—Mobile Road Construction Machinery

Many different colorful heavy industrial earth-moving machinery at construction site parking that adhere to ISO 15143-1:2010.

As technology advances, it is continuously being used to develop worksite information systems in the construction industry. The introduction of such systems into construction projects include earth-work and road construction work. ISO 15143-1:2010— Earth-Moving Machinery And Mobile Road Construction Machinery – Worksite Data Exchange – Part 1: System Architecture applies to the data exchange related to the use earth-moving machinery and mobile road construction machinery.

Construction Worksite Data Exchange

To use worksite information systems, it must be possible for data to be easily and reliably exchanged between the machinery, measuring equipment, and site information systems. The names and definitions of data and data formats, however, normally differ between worksite information systems, construction machines, and measuring equipment in use. This is a problem that severely obstructs the development and use of worksite information systems. ISO 15143-1:2010 is intended to resolve these problems and guarantee the interoperability of data.

What Is ISO 15143-1?

ISO 15143-1:2010 specifies system architecture for the exchange of data related to the use of earth‑moving machinery (as defined in ISO 6165) and mobile road construction machinery (as defined in ISO 22242).

  • Earth‑Moving Machinery: machinery designed to perform excavation, loading, transportation, drilling, spreading, compacting or trenching of earth, rock, and other materials during work, for example, on roads and dams, in quarries and mines and on building sites.
  • Mobile Road Construction Machinery: machinery and equipment used in the construction and maintenance of traffic routes, roads, highways, runways, aprons, etc., and is applicable to those specialized machines/equipment intended for pavement construction and road maintenance. 

ISO 15143-1:2010 also applies to worksite data exchange for services related to machine use and gives definitions of terms related to worksite data exchange.

Technology in Construction

As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies continue to advance, these technologies can avert many of the most common roadblocks and delays. The latest technologies in construction include building Information Modelling (BIM), cloud-based project management, robotics, drones, innovative materials like self-healing concrete and thin joint masonry, 3D printing, augmented reality (AR), modular construction, and mobile technologies.

This technology is making positive impacts on key priorities within the construction industry, including workforce, safety and risk management. For example, helmets are mandatory safety equipment and are now becoming wearable tech. Special lenses and augmented reality capabilities can provide early warnings about hazards. Wearable tech can also keep track of how much time someone has spent on the job site.

Besides safety, AI has also helped increase the operational efficiency at construction sites. Predictive analytics, for instance, takes data and uses it to determine what is most likely to happen. Some AIs can predict when you need to order particular materials, and others will help you identify issues around the job site and make recommendations for avoiding them.

Drones in Construction

Drones are especially beneficial in construction technology. These unmanned aerial vehicles offer an unprecedented perspective from above, providing invaluable data through comprehensive site surveys and continuous progress monitoring. With drones, it is easier to track what materials are needed and how much to order. This capability can save companies money, as it reduces material waste. Drones can also keep tabs on productivity; they can even update clients on when to expect job completion. Lastly, drones make it easier to watch the job site from remote locations, helping improve worker safety as workers can report hazards sooner and instructions on how to deal with these dangers can be delivered more efficiently.
