New ICT methods and techniques in the context of building sciences and urban sciences.
According to the United Nations, 60% of the world population will live in urban areas in 2030.The main challenges for the built environment are the rapid increase of people living in cities, the depletion of natural resources and climate change. Therefore, smart solutions, based on ICT and data are needed to manage buildings, public spaces and the overall city. Because waste material is not accepted anymore, ICT is needed to trace building components and material over lifetime. Finally, energy consumption by people needs to be controlled, using ICT to influence their behavior. In the ISBE group we make connection between technology, people and built environment where computing science is linked with behavioral science. BIG data from building/city models are combined with data from sensors and questionnaires to draw conclusions on the quality of the built environment. Information systems are developed to enable informed decisions for the engineering and management of the built environment.Read more
