This paper describes ongoing research into automating the process of collecting project control information using acoustical sensing devices. The paper describes how frequency spectra analyses can be used to differentiate different categories of equipment and to determine if a 50T Euclid off road truck is empty or loaded. The relationship between production and production-related sounds is explored for a masonry operation. The paper concludes that the development of a project control system based on acoustical sensing is feasible.
