The Smart Management Infrastructure Laboratory (SMILab) of the University of New Mexico is holding the 1st Smart Management of Infrastructure Webinar (SMIWeb 2020) from 10am-12pm on July 9th.
This webinar is a free workshop on new updates on smart structure technologies. Researchers, students, and professionals from industry interested in learning about new technologies with practical implementation in the area of smart structures technologies are encouraged to attend.
The different topics will be presented by senior researchers of the SMILab with an emphasis on increasing awareness on the future directions smart structures may take in the next decade. The impact of these new technologies in frontier areas include, but are not limited to: wireless sensing technologies, augmented reality, computer vision, non-linear dynamics, point-cloud analysis, and artificial intelligence. The areas of implementation include design, assessment, inspection, and sensing of structures, with an emphasis on structural health monitoring.
SMILab researchers conduct their research at the Department of Civil Construction and Environmental Engineering and the Center for Advanced Research and Computing (CARC), both at the University of New Mexico, (UNM). UNM is famous for the creation of Matlab and conducts innovation and discovery in new research areas in collaboration with Sandia National Laboratory, the Air Force Research Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. The Director of SMILab is Dr. Fernando Moreu, PE, Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering, and cross-appointed in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UNM.
The New Mexico Consortium (NMC) supports and enables collaboration in new areas of high risk / high return between LANL and Universities. With the support from the NMC, researchers at UNM (Dr. Moreu) and LANL (Dr. Mascarenas), SMILab has been developing Augmented Reality for Inspections since 2016. Results of their collaboration include several Master and PhD students writing journal papers and MS/PhD thesis on a very new topic. Some of their projects will be presented in the July 9th free webinar.
The NMC and SMILab invite you to attend this virtual conference to exchange new research ideas. At the end of the webinar, a free drone will be raffled between attendees. We hope you can join the First SMIWeb this July 9th!
