EGOpro Safe Tunnel is a complete, integrated and reliable solution that, through a single software platform, manages a broad range of activities from controlling access to the construction site, to tracking personnel in tunnels, integrating with closed circuit television systems, managing communications in tunnels and monitoring environmental parameters with sensors, as well as managing emergencies and alarms in construction sites across the world.
The integrated system
The EGOpro Safe Tunnel solution is a modular system that can be thought of as a single Active Safety solution that can be implemented using one or more modules.
The modules that make up this integrated safety solution in a construction site are:
1. Access control and presence count
The access control module for both vehicles and pedestrians manages worker access to the construction site, to the canteen and to the tunnel. Access by unauthorised personnel is either reported or denied. The system stores the entrances/exits made by personnel to/from the various zones in the construction site.
2. Monitoring and Tracking
Through the active Tag and the RFID access points, the tracking module can monitor, in real time, the presence and position of workers in the various zones of the tunnel. As well as always being able to see how workers are dispersed across the various zones in the construction site, in the event of an emergency, a list of people present can be printed to assist any evacuation. Furthermore, the system manages alarm situations in hazardous zones (e.g. zones with a limited time window, etc.)
One distinctive element of the EGOpro access points, in addition to being able to activate them remotely, is the ability to MULTI-READ workers. This is the ability to detect multiple people inside a moving vehicle at the entrance to the tunnel, without the workers having to do anything to be recognised. The system, based on web-based software, provides the control room with an overview of the situation and displays, in real time, the position and identity of each worker as well as monitoring the status of any alarms. In addition, for direct monitoring on-site, a display can be used that shows the number of workers in the tunnel.
3. Environmental monitoring
The Environmental Monitoring module ensures the operational zone’s complete integrity. Specifically, it collects various on-site data and manages alarms in real time.
The CCTV module manages the video surveillance system. Video cameras can be activated by movement or by detecting a TAG code.
Video cameras managed directly from the control room can be placed:
5. Voice communication
The Voice Communication module enables spoken communication. Isolated workers are able to send important messages.
Every module is managed in an integrated way through a web-based software system which allows you to control, in real time, the position and number of people within the various zones, as well as each individual worker, and provides diagnostics for the entire plant

Why choose EGOpro Safe Tunnel?
OPTIMISATION OF THE LEVEL OF SAFETY
In the event of a hazard or an emergency, you can view, in real time, the location of workers throughout the construction site to speed up evacuation procedures.
The system is modular with integrated management: use just one module or all the modules through a single software management system.
