SMarT TIMBER

Monitoring during transportation via cellular based data acquistition.

Performance data collection and analysis from critical components, including real-time conditions of the building during construction, gives architects, engineers and contractors critical information to make informed decisions.

 

Data recorded during transportation, construction, and over the life of the structure validates significant decisions in design, sequencing, and tradesmanship.

DATA VISUALIZATION TOOLS

Unity Virtual Tour -

Let's walk through SMT sensors inside the UBC Tallwood House.

Using Unity Gaming Engine, users are able to virtually tour the building and inspect live sensor data.

The building exterior can be viewed from any direction.

Select sensors to view historical data trends.
