Abstract

This chapter discusses the integrated use of mobile communication technologies and the Semantic Web to provide context-aware information and services within the construction sector. Emerging technologies such as Wi-Fi, IEEE 802.11, 4G, Web Services and the Semantic Web have the potential to overcome the shortcomings of conventional information and communication technologies (ICTs) in terms of supporting mobile project team members. It starts with a brief review of the limitations of conventional information and communication technologies and then goes on to present the approach developed in the WiSeCon (Wireless and Semantic Web-based integration of Construction services) Project. Examples of deployment scenarios for the prototype system are presented to highlight the benefits of the approach to mobile construction workers, construction educators and facility managers.
