Abstract: Crane related accidents, caused by multiple factors such as a worker entering a dangerous area, is one of the major accident types in the construction industry. A vision for addressing this problem is through an intelligent jobsite, fully wired and sensed. Recent advancement in pervasive and ubiquitous computing makes autonomous crane safety monitoring possible. An initial step towards implementing autonomous crane safety monitoring is to identify the safety and information requirements needed. This paper presents a literature review and results from a set of expert interviews, used to extract requirements for autonomous crane safety monitoring. The extracted requirements for dynamic safety zones and associated information requirements as a precursor to deployment are also presented in the paper.
