Construction progress monitoring is a critical task for construction managers. Traditionally, site superintendents walk the construction site to verify the progress report and understand the current state of construction processes. To get rid of the time consuming process, this research proposes a construction progress monitoring system comprised of a network type closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera, a wireless local area network, and image processing techniques. A civil engineering construction site was selected and the system is able to capture the images of the construction processes. In this paper, the hardware architecture of the system and its initial application results are presented with some promising outcomes.
