Report of the NIST Workshop on Data Exchange Standards at the Construction Job Site
Kamel S. Saidi, Alan M. Lytle, William C. Stone
The Building and Fire Research Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in cooperation with the Fully Integrated and Automated Technology (FIATECH) consortium, sponsored a workshop on data exchange standards at the construction job site in May 2003. The purpose of the workshop was to investigate the problem of exchanging sensor data at the construction job site. Some of the desired outcomes were to identify requirements for and barriers to sensor data exchange in construction, to identify and plan the steps required to establish raw sensor data-exchange standards, and to identify future research directions. A description of the workshop structure, agenda, and preliminary results are presented.
