In order to dramatically improve the productivity and safety of tunnel construction, we are developing a new construction production system "Shimizu Smart Tunnel". Based on the concept of "Digital Twin", it utilizes data sensing technology and information communication technology to acquire all kinds of data from people, machines and environment at construction sites. Using the data, we have implemented "Safety 2.0" that realizes collaborative safety technologies between humans and machines and "Safeguard support system" that reduces human error. We introduced a "Human-Machine contact risk reduction system" at actual sites.
