Advanced Real-Time Monitoring Models for Temporary Structures in Construction

Publication: Computing in Civil Engineering (2009)

Abstract

The development of new sensing technology is able to collect more data at a higher precision and enables rapid inspection and monitoring of construction sites. Since the metadata is generally not structured, it is difficult for engineers to choose a proper monitoring method that satisfies their needs for decision making. Monitoring systems that function as a real-time data collection, storage, and data analysis system would be far more efficient than performing these tasks manually. Due to illogic data structure, information losses commonly occur when data is transmitted from one source to another. Minimizing such information losses and enhancing information interchange over the internet requires specific markup language to perform rapid automated feedback. The presented research developed a conceptual and logical model for monitoring systems. Unified Modeling Language (UML) was applied in the conceptual model design for a particular construction work task. Finally, in the logical model design phase, the object model is mapped into XML.
