Abstract

Accurate and timely identification and tracking of construction components are critical to operating a well-managed and cost efficient construction project. Establishing standards to support identification and tracking technologies has the potential to enable the construction industry to seamlessly integrate work processes at the job-site. This paper discusses ongoing research at NIST in the application of field sensors, portable computers, real-time high precision global positioning, wireless communications, and construction project databases, to develop means for real-time component identification and tracking.
