Étude comparative
Abstract
FERIC a comparé un système de surveillance peu coûteux utilisant un récepteur GPS March II et un système de navigation Satloc disponible commercialement, pour déterminer si le système moins cher pouvait surveiller les opérations aériennes d'ensemencement ou de pulvérisation. Bien qu'il semble prometteur, le système de coût modique était moins précis que le système SATLOC.

Abstract
As part of the technology evaluation of a driver fatigue management system, CurAegis’s wristband-based fatigue monitoring system was evaluated in one logging contractor’s fleet in the B.C. Interior. The drivers’ feedback, sleep data, and alertness score were collected. The alertness score reported by the watch was compared and correlated with the driver’s subjective fatigue score. The following is the study results and findings.

Abstract
As part of FPInnovations’ and BC Forest Safety Council’s ongoing evaluation of fatigue management, the driver assistance system Seeing Machines, an eye-tracking-based technology that monitors driver fatigue onboard in real time, was evaluated. In addition, distraction was monitored and evaluated. Readiband, a wristband technology with biomathematical science that monitors drivers’ sleep quantity and quality, was used to correlate the band-reported fatigue score with Seeing Machines’ reported fatigue events. The study findings, participants’ feedback, and onboard device performance are summarized in this report.

Abstract
Dans le cadre de l’évaluation d’un système de gestion de la fatigue des conducteurs, la montre de surveillance de la fatigue de CurAegis a été évaluée dans la flotte d’un entrepreneur forestier de l’intérieur de la C.-B. On a recueilli les commentaires des conducteurs, des données sur le sommeil et des cotes de vigilance. La cote de vigilance indiquée par la montre a été comparée et mise en corrélation avec une évaluation subjective de la fatigue du conducteur. Voici les résultats et les constatations de l’étude.

Abstract
This report documents the instrumentation installed for monitoring moisture, indoor air quality and differential movement performance in a six-storey building located in the City of Vancouver. The building has five storeys of wood-frame construction above a concrete podium, providing 85 rental units for residential and commercial use. It was designed and built to meet the Passive House standard and, once certified, will be the largest building in Canada that meets this rigorous energy standard. Although the design and construction focused on integrating a number of innovative measures to improve energy efficiency, much effort was also made to reduce construction costs. One example of the design measures is the use of a highly insulating exterior wall assembly that integrates rigid insulation between two rows of wall studs as interior air and vapour barriers. This monitoring study aims to generate data on long-term performance as part of FPInnovations’ effort to assist the building sector in developing durable and energy efficient wood-based buildings, which is expected to translate into reduced energy consumption and carbon emissions from the built environment. The monitoring focuses on measuring moisture performance of the building envelope (i.e., exterior walls, roof, and sill plates); indoor environmental quality including temperature, humidity, and CO2; and vertical differential movement between exterior walls and interior walls below roof/roof decks. In total, 79 instruments were installed during the construction. The next steps of this study will focus on collecting and analysing data from the sensors installed, and assessing performance related to the building envelope and vertical differential movement. FPInnovations will also collaborate with CanmetENERGY of Natural Resources Canada to monitor heat recovery ventilators and to assess whole-building energy efficiency and occupant comfort. This is expected to start after the mechanical systems are fully commissioned during occupancy. Results of these upcoming phases of work will be published in future reports.

Abstract
The main focus of this report is to provide recommendations regarding what parameters could be measured in the field to assess the environmental and structural performance of wetland crossings. A secondary focus of the report is to make general recommendations for structuring a potential monitoring program, including factors such as frequency/timing of monitoring, personnel/training considerations, and reporting and data management. To collect the information required to make these recommendations, we completed a literature review, six interviews with reosurce extraction companies and regulatory agencies, and field tours of two forestry companies' wetland crossings.

Abstract
The forested landscapes in Canada feature numerous wetlands, such as fens, bogs, and swamps that present both environmental and operational challenges during the planning and construction of resource roads. In 2013, FPInnovations documented the construction of a section of resource road built across a treed bog and established a 700-m section for long-term monitoring. The road presented in this Info Note is located in the Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries’ Forest Management Agreement area in northeast Alberta. This Info Note describes the results of the road elevation and culvert surveys following two years of monitoring. Further information on the construction techniques used at this site is available in Winter road construction for all-season access across a wetland (Gillies, 2014).
