Research

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.
