Construction insurance is an overall name given to various types of insurance policies that provide coverage for property damage, third-party injuries or damage claims. But if you are new to building contractors insurance, or the construction industry in general, you are probably finding the world of construction insurance a tad confusing.

AI in Real-World Robotics

Article | July 19, 2021

While experts debate the finer points of what constitutes a true general artificial intelligence (AI) and the various steps that can get us there, it isn’t in any doubt that robots are getting smarter –and learning how to make better decisions-- thanks to various AI-related systems. From the autonomous cars on our roads and the autonomous mobile robots in the world’s warehouses through to AI-powered machine vision systems, edge computing in manufacturing environments, and agricultural drones that can process huge amounts of data on the fly, AI greatly enhances robot performance by providing bots with intelligent decision-making capabilities based on an analysis of billions of data points coupled with neural network and deep learning strategies. Crucially, AI enables robots to be more flexible, while at the same time enhancing traceability across all types of automation processes.

Trimble’s SiteVision Turns Your Phone Into an Augmented Reality BIM Coordination Machine

Article | July 19, 2021

There are a handful of pretty cool accessories for your smartphone that can be very useful to those of us in the construction industry, like thermal imaging cameras, in-wall imagers, and inspection cameras. None of those, however, help with BIM coordination, unlike a system that I just found from construction software giant, Trimble. Many different systems have been created in recent years to harness the power of augmented reality on the jobsite, with BIM the core focus of many of those solutions, but this system from Trimble is a bit different than all of them. Using an AR enabled smartphone, Trimble SiteVision combines hardware and software to virtually project BIM models onto the jobsite you’re standing in.

New Solution Processing Methods for Organic Electronic Devices

Article | July 19, 2021

The field of organic electronics has seen a lot of interest in recent years. On the whole, the performance and efficiency of organic electronic devices are not typically as high as inorganic-based electronics. However, their unique properties – especially their flexibility, conformability and thinness compared the more rigid inorganic materials – have seen them being used for specific applications and in areas where the properties of conventional inorganic-based electronics are not suitable.

Three years on from the UK's National Infrastructure Assessment - how should we evolve strategic infrastructure planning?

Article | July 19, 2021

Major infrastructure interventions come with significant uncertainty – this is something explored before before. Provision of high quality infrastructure is a challenge faced by every government around the world, and there are many uncertainties around the planning and funding of these schemes that have to be weighed up and balanced. The Enabling Better Infrastructure (EBI) programme encapsulated best practice principles from around the world. We have dipped into this best practice toolkit to underpin our review of the UK’s strategic infrastructure planning system led by the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC), the results of which we have published today.
