Smart structures will be the future of construction as technology evolves. Structures are not smart just because of technology. Today, smart structures are an amalgamation of technology, processes, and standards; the driving force behind this paradigm shift.
Smart buildings are those whose operations are controlled by automated processes.
Even though this definition encompasses a variety of factors, these parameters are not the only ones it encompasses. The construction and infrastructure industries lack a standard definition of a smart building or structure.
Workflow of Smart Buildings
A smart structure is characterized by better resource utilization and reduced effort.
Sensors integrate lighting, power meters, heating, cooling, pumps, fire alarms, and plants into a smart building. As compared to conventional structures, smart structures could improve over time & external forces provide more to the occupants than just shelter and safety.
