Abstract: The technological evolution of the “Internet of Things” (IoT), after its deep innovation in the industrial automation field through the so-called Industry4.0 - the fourth industrial revolution driven by data - is going to deeply innovate also the entire supply chain of the construction sector, including construction sites. This paper aims at analyzing and presenting the communication technologies enabling the IoT paradigm in the construction sector supply chain. In particular, the analysis focuses on field level communication, i.e. solutions for integrating construction site equipment and sensors into the company information system.
Keywords: Communication infrastructure; LoRaWAN; low cost sensors; construction sites
