The role of sensing and data in transforming the future of infrastructure
The increasing sophistication of sensing systems and data analytics has the potential to transform the future of infrastructure.
Work being carried out at the Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction is developing capabilities which will provide a powerful platform for delivering data to enable smarter and more proactive decision-making, both during the construction of new assets and the management of existing infrastructure.
A number of case studies will be described which illustrate how these capabilities are being deployed with industry partners to provide insights into asset behaviour and condition.
The lecture will begin at 18:30 and will be followed by a networking reception from 19:30. Please note that places for this event are limited and seating will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
A live stream of this event will be available on this page from 18:30 on Tuesday 5 March.
