Infrastructure systems, broadly defined to include buildings and other facilities, transportation infrastructure, telecommunication networks, the power grid and environmental systems will require more and more that engineers provide a continuous state awareness, assessment and proactive decision making for the complete life-cycle of the systems and processes they create. Such continuous state awareness and proactive decision making will allow these systems to be more efficiently and effectively managed in both normal and abnormal conditions. Advanced Infrastructure Systems is defined here to refer to innovative systems, components, devices and processes that improve the performance and/or reduce the life-cycle cost of a broad range of physical infrastructure systems.

There are many technological developments and research projects that already support, or begin to support this vision. Civil Engineers, not just electrical and computer engineers and computer scientists, can and should be involved in delivering this overall vision.

At this talk professor Soibelman will introduce his vision and work developed within his research group focus on the application and exploration of emerging Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), to a broadly defined set of infrastructure systems and associated processes, such as planning, design, construction, facility/infrastructure management, and environmental monitoring, so as to improve their sustainability, efficiency, maintainability, durability, and overall performance of these systems.

This talk is part of the Construction Engineering Seminars series.
