Dynamic Project Management (DPM) Lab
The Dynamic Project Management (DPM) Lab aims to understand and manage construction dynamics and human-infrastructure interface through sensing, data analytics and computer simulation. Particularly, DPM is interested in achieving the maximum benefit from technologies like wearables, automation, and robotics for humans in construction and infrastructure. DPM also applies these technologies to direct smart and connected communities and cities toward social equality.
Sustainable and Intelligent Civil Infrastructure Systems Laboratory (SICIS)
Current research in Sustainable and Intelligent Civil Infrastructure Systems Laboratory (SICIS Lab) focuses on understanding and modeling the impact of occupants on energy use in buildings, and developing decision frameworks to assist in building operations and management; as well as, sustainable retrofit decisions. The research team used several tools such as energy simulation, complex adaptive systems modeling, high-level architecture and informatics.
LIVE Robotics Group
The Laboratory for Interactive Visualization in Engineering (LIVE) Robotics Group conducts research focused on Automation and Robotics, and its applications in the construction, operation, and maintenance of civil infrastructure systems. LIVE is also conducting research in Real-Time Visualization and its applications in construction process monitoring and control. The LIVE also has significant expertise and experience in visual simulation, virtual and augmented reality, indoor and outdoor positioning systems, mobile computing, and its applications in construction and other engineering domains. The LIVE is equipped with several mobile robotic platforms (iRobot Create; CoroBot; Husky) and other pieces of computing, positioning, and reality-capture hardware.
