While up-right build structures are under construction, an over-hung crane has a major role in efficient lifting and transporting heavy materials from one point to another. There are several types of cranes for a variety of construction sites, such as bridge/overhead, barge lift, tower crane, etc. The mobile crane is one of the most widely used types of construction equipment due to its mobility. Unfortunately, the number of crane accidents including casualties and deaths has increased over the last decade. In order to reduce these fatal tragedies, a dynamic simulator of mobile cranes based on analyzed overturn limit data has been developed and analysis results have been applied to site tests. The test bench is formulated to simulate the actual construction field and some practical experiments have been performed in realistic manners of operation. Moreover, wireless network communication systems are applied for monitoring the status of the crane from a distance where visibility is not secure. Consequently, the applicability in the field derived from operating the simulator and actual vehicle testing confirmed the feasibility of applying it to construction sites. View Full-Text
