Webinar - Wearable Sensor Technology and Business

last modified May 03, 2018 02:49 PM
9 April 2018 - Wearable Sensor Technology and Business, by Benjamin Lucas

This Webinar presents the December 2017 paper on wearable sensor technology and business. Wearable sensor technology presents businesses with compelling opportunities to shed new light on human behavioural processes, within the broader spheres of ubiquitous computing and the internet-of-things (IoT). In B2C markets, wearable sensors are being put to use in areas such as personal health and fitness monitoring, often connected to cloud data platforms, while in B2B markets, such hardware is finding applications in healthcare and industrial safety. Another new frontier application of wearable sensor technology is within the context of human resource management and organisational behaviour, where deploying wearable sensors has proven to be an effective, accurate and relatively non-invasive way of studying human interactions. Currently, such research builds largely on the domain of human activity recognition (HAR), focusing on defining and analysing behavioural markers of socio-psychological processes underlying social interactions, but in the future, presents possibilities to be extended into contexts such as organisational transformation, both in process planning/operations and physical space planning, built environment occupant behaviour analysis, and crossovers with building information modelling (BIM).

Understanding business models in the construction sector

Nov 25, 2020

What’s standing in the way of offsite manufacturing? For decades, the construction sector has been hailing it as the next big thing but we have yet to see it really taking off. Why is that, when the technologies and processes already exist? Dr Zakaria Dakhli believes it is due to a fundamental incompatibility between business models and it is only when this has been fully understood that the long-awaited transformation can take place.

A machine learning approach to quality control
