CSIC and Laing O’Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering and Technology showcased a number of hands-on and family-friendly activities at their event ‘Smart Building, Smart Construction’.  These included a range of smart technologies including: an instrumented suspension bridge that demonstrated dynamic strain; a CSIC-developed data acquisition system featuring acoustic emission sensors and accelerometer that displayed a real-time signal on contact with the sensor; and, the mixed reality world of the Microsoft Hololens.
