Internet of things: build a new world with new technology

Construction industry billions of people around the world to provide a place to live and work, a huge impact on the national economy is also self-evident. However, the construction industry is a new technology adoption in the evolution of the slowest industries. Over the past 50 years, the construction process of a building has not changed much.

Now, with the impact of population growth, rapid urbanization, environmental stress factors such as the rise of technological change in the construction industry will have to speed up, and the theme of this process is “smart.” From virtual reality to UAV mapping, printing from 3D to collaboration software, from energy-efficient systems to environmentally friendly building materials, construction intelligent reflect overall changes in the field of software and hardware. And we need to make smarter investments in these areas, in order to promote the adoption of more new technologies.

For government departments, intelligent urban planning is particularly important, not only relates to the future of new urban planning, but also to upgrade the existing community can not be ignored, as the first 50-year plan being developed by the same Boston.

Compared with cars, planes and improve intelligence, intelligent building industry also full of imagination. Reason to believe that, in the future, every day we live, work, building space shuttle which is the biggest smart terminals, and new business and investment opportunities in the construction industry technological change can not be ignored. Let us meet together by the arrival of this new technology to build the new world.

First, urbanization

From now to 2050, the world population will grow by 20 million people. That is, 35 years later, this planet will be 90 billion people.

Think about where they will live? In the city, where close to you. In 1910, 10% of the population lives in cities, currently 50%, by 2030 this proportion will exceed 70%.

By then, more than 20 million people in the Northeast Corridor will between Washington DC and Boston called his home, you still feel you are now living environment already crowded it?

Second, to promote sustainable building

This rapid urbanization will continue to drive global demand for new residential and commercial buildings. Perhaps the only way to meet this demand is to enable architects, engineers and contractors to speed up the construction speed. At the same time, we must eliminate waste, improve the efficiency of building operations, in order to achieve a sustainable built environment.

This means that we need to find ways to enhance cooperation and synergies in the construction industry, making the whole process more efficient. Of course, technology will provide the answer, as flux.io such as the construction industry collaboration tools.

Third, sustainable building products

It is important that we not only need to build enough buildings for all the residents, and we also have a responsibility to the use of sustainable building products in the design and construction of these buildings.

The only way to achieve this is through public data accessible to enhance the transparency of production and supply of building materials and products. This is the role of Quartz Project areas. By Google, Flux, ThinkStep and the initiative Healthy Building Network proposed to promote the market to material toxicity, low adverse effects closer, they will use in building a better, a more healthy community made contribution.

Fourth, smart city

This is what a planet? Become wisdom, this is what we can do for ourselves and the world. Smart City is a label, which means that demand taken, vary. In this context, we are talking about how cleverly designed, constructed and improve your city.

Urban construction in China and India in the rapid development. You can bet they are applying the best technology. So let’s learn these techniques to plan, design and build the smart city.

We all live on our mobile devices, most of us know who they can tell us where, when and where to turn. Judicious use of this data should allow us to adjust our infrastructure to meet the current demand. Even our federal government is also to advance in this process through the “Smart City Challenge (Smart City Challenge)” innovation competition. The study by the US Department of Transportation sponsored contest is a great start!

Fifth, intelligence community planning

In the United States, the city was already there. Even so, we can upgrade our planning.

Boston in the development of its first 50-year Master Plan. Why? Because Boston had to do. Urban planners have realized that to deal with the growing urban population density is the most effective way is extensive and in-depth plan for the future. Boston takes appropriate technical, in the city to promote dialogue and early communication, including people already living there.

Sixth, the construction of the system

We offer a variety of building the world’s billions of people. But you know that half of the world’s carbon emissions come from buildings?

Like Architecture 2030 report called for, the first step is better design to make a change. What can contribute to a better design? That is the software, including building energy-saving software.

We Nest thermostat in our homes. So, our place of business? We should not have a “big building” version? Yes, we should and must have an application to implement energy management.

Seven, virtual reality

When we do the design, why not experience the virtual reality? So we will be able before the shovel to the site, you know what we’ve been building. This is designed in the future.

According to recent studies, the construction industry in the economy as a whole is to be the last one by the technical transformation of key sectors. Now it seems like a good time!

Eight, Collaboration

Are we working efficiently? I guess you know the answer.

The new collaboration software using the “cloud” technology, so that all construction stakeholders can communicate transparently. Let us use it in every project it.

Nine, construction technology

From cars to aircraft, these products are, and intelligently run made by humans. Why can not the building? Let us encourage more manufacturing technology in the construction field.

Building need to fly, but they really can through the use of construction techniques, and better able to design and construction.

Ten, infrastructure

We are thinking about the infrastructure as a job creation project. This time, let’s do it wisely, and the data can help.

From Los Angeles to New York, let’s encourage open data movement, and to ensure that their impact in the field of infrastructure construction.

XI, intelligent mapping

Learning how to respond to and recover from extreme weather aspect, intelligent mapping and analysis can play a meaningful role. The result is to create a more adaptive community. Let’s skip the drawing, open model!

Of course, more and more data from drones and other remote sensing data, and promote geographic information systems professionals to work more efficiently, capture more accurate mapping data.

XII Things

Through networking, smart sensors can track the use of the infrastructure, and remind us when you need maintenance. Just think, when you’re on the way to work through when a bridge, would not you feel better?

XIII, building

Over the past 50 years, the construction of a new building process and there is no significant change, while the construction industry is the largest sector in developed economies has not been significantly subversion of emerging technologies. Why is this so?

Construction drip revolution is underway. Each person in this process the role needs to evolve, it is time for the building to join the digital world!

Fourth, the built environment

Collection of architectural environment, also known as artificial environment, often regarded as construction and infrastructure (and all related systems), and together they become the platform of our modern life.

However, as you know, those unintended consequences of industrialization: rising sea levels, climate change, growing urban populations, and more will factor into our world more and more under pressure .

Construction, improve our world

As citizens of the Earth, we want to challenge our leaders to enable them to design, build and improve our world of technology investment, which is about the “wisdom of the Earth” thing.Construction industry billions of people around the world to provide a place to live and work, a huge impact on the national economy is also self-evident. However, the construction industry is a new technology adoption in the evolution of the slowest industries. Over the past 50 years, the construction process of a building has not changed much.

Now, with the impact of population growth, rapid urbanization, environmental stress factors such as the rise of technological change in the construction industry will have to speed up, and the theme of this process is “smart.” From virtual reality to UAV mapping, printing from 3D to collaboration software, from energy-efficient systems to environmentally friendly building materials, construction intelligent reflect overall changes in the field of software and hardware. And we need to make smarter investments in these areas, in order to promote the adoption of more new technologies.

For government departments, intelligent urban planning is particularly important, not only relates to the future of new urban planning, but also to upgrade the existing community can not be ignored, as the first 50-year plan being developed by the same Boston.
