Personnel:
Faculty: A. Costin, J. McNair, I. Jeelani, and S. Koppal
Alumni: N/A
Graduate Students: TBD
Undergraduate Students: Kyle Morman


Project Goal:
This proposal develops a robust cyberinfrastructure (CI) system and service for construction research and applications to address the current challenges faced in the construction industry. The outcomes and services that that this proposal aims to provide are 1) a distributed SDN-managed and AI-assisted IoT-based system that can be adapted and extended based on needs of the research and application; 2) identification of the data and data security requirements needed to address the challenges in the construction industry and potential technologies that can provide those data; 3) evaluation of reliable real-time multi-sensor fusion techniques for ruggedness, usability, and limitations of IoT-based components deployed in the dynamic construction environments; 4) robust prototype system for real-time safety monitoring based on the IoT system framework; and 5) recommendations of potential configurations of the system with the appropriate technology and sensors to meet the needs of the application.

Project Goal:
The overarching objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the concept of  Digital Twin technology in the cold chain applications of fresh produce. The temperature of the refrigerated case and temperature-related quality of fresh produce will be monitored based on the sensor data and mechanistic models run real time. User interface will provide optimum shelf life decision criteria for the refrigerator (e.g., assets) operation or food handling (e.g. sale incentives, donation, etc.

Precision Crop Micro-Farm Monitoring

Personnel:
Faculty: C. Fraisse, J. McNair
Alumni: N/A
Graduate Students: T. Borba Onofre
Undergraduate Students: TBD


Project Goal:
The advancement of new technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), provides an opportunity for enhancing precision agriculture-based management practices and enabling lower lost technology to become more attractive. The main objective of this research is to design, implement, and monitor site-specific weather conditions at the farm level using Internet of Things and Wireless Sensor Networks
