Where research intersects with construction equipment and materials, applications of machine learning and knowledge-based systems, robotics, 3D Printing, internet of things, wearable computing, applications of drones to construction, safety systems
In a recent presentation at a San Francisco conference on optics and photonics, researchers presented papers describing their successful tests of optical data transmission tools, which soon may replace current data centers’ thousands of miles of fiber-optic cables with overhead layer of infrared laser beams, lenses and mirrors.
In today’s world of readily available aerial imagery from satellites and drones, the future of high-resolution aerial imagery taken from manned, fixed-wing aircraft might be questioned, but consumers of all three types of images say there is still a big role for manned-aircraft imaging services.
Our expert panel will discuss how the Internet of Things is now finding its way into the construction industry, how project teams are using big data to build profit, reduce risk and deliver better project outcomes and future trends.
In this webinar, attendees will learn how global collaboration produces surprising benefits such as a reduction of carbon footprint, as well as how the concept of ‘Information-led design’ inspired the creation of AECOM's world-class collaboration system.
This webinar explores how design and construction teams are using drones today and how this emerging technology will change the way work is done in the future- from imagery and data collection to mapping, surveys and beyond.
Streamed LIVE from FutureTech 2016 | This webinar chats with a panel of design, construction and academic experts that will present on recommendations for successfully navigating this period of transformative change.
ENR will call on two top forecasters for this webinar, asking them to share their views on the market prospects for the industry, both nationally and regionally. We will then add another layer by asking a leading industry technology strategist about what those forecasts could mean to companies from a construction technology standpoint next year.
New technologies are being launched at an accelerating pace. Deciding when to be an early adopter and when to wait and see can be difficult for design and construction professionals. ENR will talk with experts responsible for exploring emerging technologies at major firms to help sort out the differences.
ENR will sit down with a panel of architects and engineers who are successfully using electronic information management systems to capture and leverage their legacy ideas—as well as their new ones—to keep them more successful into the future.
The rapid advancement of Virtual/Augmented Reality technology is no more relevant than in the AEC market. During this webinar, you will hear from early adopters of this technology to see how it is rapidly becoming a valuable assistant in their project controls workflow.
Arch dams, classically curved monoliths situated in narrow valleys, are not as common as other types of dams, such as embankment dams and gravity dams. ENR takes a look at some of the biggest arch dams in the world, both completed and under construction.
