With the rapid development of information technology, smart innovations have been applied to the fields of architecture, civil engineering, urban planning, industrial design. On May 28th, the 1st XJTLU Design School student competition in Innovative Applications in Future Smart Built Environment was successfully held.
The competition aims to promote interdisciplinary communication among Design School, enhance the cooperation between academic staff and students, and cultivate talents to meet the industry's needs.
In the final contest, 8 shortlisted teams displayed their works through presentations and question sessions. Internal and external experts were invited to give critics and comments on the works.
The student works covered a range of multidisciplinary topics, including smart Building Information Modelling (BIM), Landscape Information Modelling (LIM), intellectualized architecture, IoT, machine learning, etc. After discussion of the reviewers, Group 4, who presented the topic of “Road Construction Progress Monitoring using UAV-based Photogrammetry System”, stood out of all the participants and won the first prize.
