Project Description

Area Description

The EDITABLE research area gathers many  interdisciplinary skills. Its focus is the development of  innovative methodological and technological solutions for the specific requirements of the   Built Environment. Looking at it as a complex system, the research team aims to study the interaction between  housing, information and Social systems. The application of Industry 4.0 paradigms (Internet of Things, Localization Systems and Wireless Networks) to the AEC Industry (Architecture, Engineering & Construction Industry) it is one of our most strategic areas. Research activities include: services for the digitization of the AEC industry, inclusive methodologies for the  adoption of BIM for lifecycle management, CAD/ BIM automation and generative parametric design; management of  data  generated by networks of  physical  objects , devices, vehicles, buildings and electronics, software, sensors and network connections in order to measure the resource consumption raising awareness among the  inhabitants of a particular built space (at different scales) and the structural monitoring.
