My research interest is the application of advanced information and communication technology (ICT) to civil, building, and environmental engineering. My research goal is to create a new cyber-real environment in which the cyber infrastructure and real world are integrated by numerous small wireless sensor networks, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, dynamic applications that share interoperable data models based on ontology, and visual/audio information services. To accomplish this goal, current research themes encompass 1) virtual/augmented reality for civil, building, and environmental engineering, 2) 3D modeling from point cloud data obtained by laser scanning or photogrammetry, 3) development of3D product models for the complete lifecycles of civil infrastructures and buildings (in particular, maintenance), 4) knowledge acquisition from big data obtained via numerous wireless sensor networks and RFID tags attached to various infrastructures, and 5) creation of new methods for enhancing society and the environment by embedding various kinds of sensors and location detection systems in the real world.
