Internet of things have proved a revolutionary technique in current generation. On the other hand, IoT has several devices, which are installed as the part of the system. On the other hand, it is important for the organizations to develop the process with the help of several devices and latter leveraging technology. One of the technologies involved in the system is wearable devices. This technology are involved in the devices that the user likes to use as well as used for sharing as well as tracking information system along with possible means. The wearable, as well as construction industry, are becoming witnessed adoption of wearable technology. Therefore, it becomes an important issue and require in a particular context to discuss the impact on the industry. Present study has attempted discussing the specific method by which the construction industry can leverage wearable technology.
The possible impact of the technology on the industry has some vital statements as well as discussions.
The construction industry acts as a host to a large number of staffs. Thus, it becomes a great essentiality that the organizations included in the particular industry cites special attention (Bernal et al. 2017). The technology will enable the enterprise monitoring health of the industry as well as enable accessing information of the organization that will improve productivity.
The technology will have the impact on supply chain industry of construction industry. It will enable the enterprise keeping track of supply as well as delivery vehicles in real-time, which will be helpful for construction industry as well as supply chain associates.
Integrating virtual reality proves to be helpful on integrating wearable in the construction industry. The staffs can provide consumers real life experience virtuality helping in order to select a particular item. It will increase productivity as well as sales figure.
Regulation and ethics:
The impact of the chosen tasks is helpful that the wearable technology will offer the staffs of the construction industry. The following factors as well as limitations are discussed that can be helpful in discussing the impact or acting like a constraint for success.
1. Law: Wearable technologies gather data as well as well as shares it in the real time that is viable in the process of deemed scenario as for the fact that the healthcare industry are currently using wearable for monitor health of patients (Awolusi et al. 2018). Hence, learning from the healthcare industry can prove as an important factor to monitor health information of the staffs.
2. Market: The cost related to the process of purchasing wearable technology for the employees can be the constraint for leveraging the impact of wearable technology on construction industry. The main cause behind the mentioned constraint lays is based on the facts that the wearable technologies are disruptive technology as well as example of using in the construction industry is considered as the massive industry where a huge number of people are working.
The wearable technology is considered as the mostly implemented technology in order to share as well as monitor data along with the fact is that the enterprises are adopting internet of things as the part of organizational infrastructure (Oesterreich and Teuteberg 2016). Thus, there are two facts that could be integrated properly and justifying that the particular architecture for implementing wearable technology can be achieved with simplicity for adopting internet of things in the process.
Adopting internet of things in the system in order to monitor health information of the staffs can be utilized in a disruptive way for monitoring personal life of the staffs that will be also an unethical action on the part of the construction industry (Choi et al. 2017). Thus, the discussed ethical issue is one of the major limitations for having possible impact of wearables on the staffs of the construction industry.
Sharing information for the staffs in the construction industry are considered as one of the most difficult tasks. During the requirement of the situation, the staffs required information goes with the supervisor and checking the essentiality of data in the particular system. The data gathered from the system can be transferred to the staffs using the process (Riggins and Wamba 2015). On the other hand, the process is manual, time as well as effort taking matter. In this perspective, the process model can be helpful to understand the procedure.

The above procedure in the model diagram can be helpful in sharing data in the manual procedure and considered as complicated. On the other hand, the particular scenario can alter when wearable technology enters in the specific scenario (Teizer 2015). In the present case, the role of supervisor can be minimized as the employees can interact directly with system as well as collects essential data for use. It is considered as time as well as effort saving process for the example in short as well as fast process (Chuah et al. 2016). Thus, the particular diagram attached with the process have witness to the specific procedure that is taken from requesting data to the process of collecting information.
As technology is continuously growing, intertwining the process is important for the organizations, where wearable technology has an important role to be played. . The possibility of wearable technology is leveraged through different industries where mining, healthcare as well as leveraging the particular technology are processed. In addition, several industries are looking for proper way in order to use the device in the particular discussion. One of the industry in the process is construction industry.
