Professor Robert Mair, Cambridge University, President, Institution of Civil Engineer – Developments in Smart Infrastructure and Construction for Tunnelling
The Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) at Cambridge is transforming the future of infrastructure and construction through smarter information enabling better decision-making. The presentation will describe some of CSIC’s recent activities on tunnelling projects employing a wide variety of new tools and technologies, including fibre optic strain measurement and low power wireless sensor networks. These innovations have been tested and proved on some major tunnelling projects in the UK, including Crossrail and London Underground station upgrades.
