WSP is committed to being the leader in all property and infrastructure-related components for smart and connected systems, offering both policy and technical support to public and private clients and acting as the liaison between owners and the emerging technologies.
The technology for cars exists today to detect hazards, notify the driver or automatically react, minimizing accidents. Bridges can be instrumented to transmit data related to structural integrity, avoiding bridge failures. Buildings can include sensors to monitor operating systems. For example, sensors can quickly identify leaking ceilings that would need prompt resolution. The proper sequence of actions will be triggered to minimize any additional risk to the building structure, sustainability, or continued occupancy. Today, sensors monitor and track huge amounts of data; cloud-based apps translate that data into useful intelligence and transmit it to machines on the ground, enabling mobile, real-time responses. We can help integrate technology, capture the data, and turn it into action for end users.
Technology applications are expanding into all aspects of our society and their impact is profound, as cities, buildings, and infrastructure become ever smarter, with solutions for smart mobility, smart security, smart healthcare, smart governance, and many more becoming commonplace.
