THE LAB STORY

Multiple global megatrends are creating enormous challenges for Infrastructure, Energy and Construction sectors; enormous growth in electric power consumption in the last five decades, No. of cars is set to double by 2040 while every day 200,000 people migrate to urban areas. in order to cope with this remarkable demand, we need to reshape the face of those industries, to face global challenges by eveloping innovative solutions that connect physical infrastructure with digital technologies.

CONSTRUCTION TECH

The $10 trillion construction industry is one of the global economy’s most conservative sectors - and one of the most eager to implement productivity-boosting technologies. The technologies that offer the greatest potential include those that will contribute to the Digitalized Construction Site: for example, those that use AR and VR to automate the gathering of BIM data; robotics and autonomous machinery for replacing and/or simplifying manual labor; wearable technologies for improving safety management; and more.

SMART INFRASTRUCTURE

In a world of Smart Infrastructure, embedded sensing technologies enable a the infrastructure to respond in real-time to its own needs and those of its users. For example, self-aware infrastructure assets are able to monitor/test their own operational status, sending out highly specific maintenance requests when required, thereby preventing disruptive outages while reducing the overall load on the maintenance staff.
