|Title: ||Attachment theft detection|
|Authors: ||Carlsson, Marcus|
|Abstract: ||Construction machines often operate at remote locations, without any ability to store attachments
or other tools in safe spaces. Therefore, attachments are often left detached
and unmonitored on the worksite during the night, which increases the likelihood of theft.
In order to prevent theft of these attachments, the objective of this project has been to
develop a theft detection system where the machine can guard attachments in close proximity
and notify its owner in case of suspicious activity. The system is based on wireless
communication via Bluetooth Low Energy  between a computer in the machine and a
small, battery-powered hardware unit equipped with motion sensors which is mounted on
the attachment. The machine will report suspected theft to the owner of the machine over
the internet if the attachment has sensed movement or if the machine has lost connection
to the attachment.
The result of this project is a proof of concept for how a system like this could be implemented.
Additionally, a web application was developed for demonstration purposes.|
