Advancing the Integration of IoT in Construction
The importance of enabling intelligent construction sites to mitigate industry challenges is becoming paramount. Safer sites, quicker schedules, and higher quality products are of the many demands on the industry. The future construction site, named Construction 4.0, is the new age of construction technology that utilizes the recent innovations in industrial production, cyber-physical systems (CPS), digital and computing technologies, and big data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI). Unfortunately, the current dynamic and chaotic environment of the construction site presents less than ideal conditions for the successful implementation and operation of these enabling technologies. This session will include a panel of leading experts from the industry to present a brief overview of their experiences and perspectives, discuss in an open dialogue, and participate in a Q&A session with the audience. The aim of this session is to identify the current challenges, considerations, and potential solutions of establishing a connected jobsite.
