Vision statement: Our vision is to be a leader in active education and research that pioneer safer and more productive (construction) workplace environments.
Mission statement: With the believe that all workplace incidents are preventable and all projects can be successful, our mission is that humans will enable and transform the way industries – like construction – perform by using technology for gathering, managing, and distributing safety, health, and process status information. This ultimately provides knowledge that leads to a safer, healthier and more productive work environment.
Major research areas:
Building Information Modeling / Virtual Design in Construction
Construction personnel education and training
Constrution worker safety, health, and wellbeing
Automation and robotics in construction
Low power remote sensing
Augmented and virtual reality
Site operations planning and progress monitoring
Real-time construction resource location tracking
Equipment design and operator visibility analysis
Close call sensing and proactive alert systems
Computer vision applications for productivity analysis
Real-time data capture, analysis, and visualization
Sponsorship and collaborations:
A large part of our success depends on the close collaboration with and support from industry partners and government agencies, as well as donations from private and not-for-profit organizations. We would like to thank all of our past and present sponsors for their contributions towards our education and research. Please contact us if you like to engage in our mission.
