A city is only as ‘smart’ as its buildings and infrastructure. At this workshop, we’ll see how civil assets are being ‘smartened up’ by industry leaders, technology providers and policy makers. Extra layers of innovative technology are being used to automatically identify (AutoID) objects and people to streamline construction and asset management processes, creating the building blocks of a Smart City.
We will see how key players are revolutionising their approach to construction and asset management, using AutoID of both components and people. There will also be state-of-the-art equipment demonstrated to illustrate how off-the-shelf technology can be used or adapted for construction, and fed into Smart Cities initiatives.
Speakers include engineers from CrossRail, Laing O’Rourke, and ATC, who will describe how they are tackling their asset identification challenges. Experts from the Cambridge University AutoID Labs and British Standards Institute will put these challenges into perspective with reports of progress in other industries and the upcoming Smart Cities standard. Sky High Technology, Cambridge Consultants and Redbite Solutions will give live, hands-on demonstrations of systems to identify objects, giving them a personality and tracking their location. There will be plenty of networking opportunities in the conveniently located Institute for Manufacturing, with lunch provided.
The Centre for Smart Infrastructure & Construction is pleased to offer this free event to those wishing to learn about the benefits they can glean from AutoID systems, but places are extremely limited. Confirm your place by emailing the CSIC Office email@example.com.
