Redpoint’s Indoor GPS brings real-time location to Autodesk’s Building Information Model (BIM) applications and enables context-aware documents while improving construction job site efficiency and safety.

Redpoint Positioning Corp. a leading developer of the first-to-market GPS-like indoor positioning solution for construction safety and efficiency applications, announced today that it will demonstrate its integration with the Autodesk® Forge Platform at ForgeDevCon, June 15-16, 2016. Redpoint’s system monitors real-time activity of assets and personnel on job sites with 8” location accuracy, and makes that information available through the Autodesk Forge Platform. Redpoint is an early adopter of the Autodesk Forge Platform, which consists of a set of Autodesk cloud services, APIs, and SDKs for developers to quickly create the data, apps, experiences, and services that power the future of making things. Redpoint leverages Forge APIs to monitor and record live construction job site activities inside BIM 360.

Says Antti Korhonen, President & CEO, Redpoint Positioning: “Redpoint is excited to work closely with Autodesk toward the goal of location-enabling Autodesk BIM solutions. This first joint integration effort demonstrates how Autodesk users can now monitor and record live construction job site activities inside BIM through Autodesk’s Forge Platform.”

“Autodesk cares deeply about the safety of construction workers on project sites, so we support a future that includes context-aware mobile applications and data with that priority in mind,” said Jim Lynch, vice president, Autodesk. “We look forward to working with Redpoint to location-enable many of Autodesk’s applications and documents through the Forge Platform extending the value of project data across the construction process.”

The Redpoint Indoor GPS solution is improving industrial worker efficiency and safety by generating real-time data about work crews, tools, and asset locations across job sites. Redpoint’s patent pending solution includes SafetyNet™, a battery-powered infrastructure, along with wireless asset tags, and wearable worker safety badges. Redpoint is targeting general availability for the commercial version of its technology during the Fall of 2016, and is now engaged in pilot projects with leading general contractors nationwide.
