Team collaboration through wireless computing (Current project)
This current project has two streams that consider the use of pervasive computing technologies in two very different contexts. The first context is the on-site (construction site) deployment of mobile computing devices. The second context is the use and development of intelligent rooms based on sensed environments and new human-computer interfaces (HCI) for collaboration in the design office. The primary objectives of this project are to:
identify relevant human-computer interfaces, and wireless mobile computing devices for use in the design office and on site
use a pervasive computing ICT platform to enable the smooth flow of design information from the architects office through to the construction site and back again
stimulate the uptake of pervasive computing technologies in the construction industry.
