PolyU develops eNightLog System for caring Elderly with Dementia

The non-contact and non-invasive eNightLog system is embedded with event sequence tracking and different kinds of remote sensing and imaging technologies, based on innovative algorithm developed by the BME team of PolyU. This innovative technique has already been patented.

Seventeen systems have been installed and tested in a nursing home for 2 months this year for nighttime monitoring. During this period, 380 incidences of elderly leaving bed alone were recorded, with all them being successfully detected (100%), and only 2 times of false alarm occurred (0.5%). In addition, the system recorded 525 events of caregivers visiting elderly and accompanying the elderly leaving, and accuracy rate is 100%.

Imerso offers intelligent technology through 3D capture and BIM

 

Working on Imerso is simple as Users start by loading the software with all the data from the planning stage, which includes BIM, geometry, schedules as well as tolerance parameters and then these data are used as monitoring targets. When, site works continues, users upload 3D data on field. The next step perform by Imerso is to register that 3D data directly to the 3D building information model and displays the result, through this it is easy for the users to compare the current on-site conditions against the original design intent.

… by leveraging machine learning, organizations can largely diminish the security concerns that come with Internet of Things (IoT). Machine learning enables data exchanges to be monitored within the organization, and with external parties to detect anomalies that are not considered the norm. Machine learning can also aid in predicting threats, in its ability to analyze historical data from specific trends, which can be evaluated from the big data produced by the algorithms.

WIT Press – The 3rd International Conference on Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Design, Construction and Operations

The 3rd International Conference on Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Design, Construction and Operations will be held in Seville, Spain. Papers to be presented at this conference will be published by WIT Press (Wessex Institute of Technology), one of the publishers of international journals.

Most noticeable journals it publishes include the following:

Hence, the papers published in this conference are likely to have good dissemination, given WIT’s reputation and its eLibrary.

International Conference on Heritage Building Information Modelling

The International Conference on Heritage Building Information Modelling (HBIM): Interpretation, Curation and Narration, will be held on 10-11 September 2018, at Roman Baths, Bath, UK

One of the challenges in BIM application is the lack of validated and complete datasets, amongst others, which features the heritage industry. Hence this conference aims to invite people who are involved in cutting edge research and development in technologies in heritage to participate and share experience.
