Progress measurement is one of key tasks for cost and schedule management in construction management. However, there has been shortage of effort to implement for automated progress measurement. This paper proposes to use a face recognition (FR) technology for automated progress measurement and management in construction sites. The FR technology can acquire detailed progress data that includes the in and out information of labors by location. The expected effectiveness of the proposed system is to provide accurate labor information for progress measurement by utilizing automated data acquisition technology (DAT) with high-speed reading face. In addition, it could be applied to real-time safety and quality management by using the camera images.
