Embedded Intelligence for Connected Infrastructure
At Smart Structures, we have a vision to apply our embedded intelligence technology to connect infrastructure giving owners, operators, contractors and designers real-time live insight and assessment of the state of their infrastructure.
The Platform integrates Smart Structures Hardware, Gateways, Cloud Computing, and IoT-based Applications.
Connected Infrastructure System Architecture and Ecosystem
Smart Structures’ connected infrastructure architecture integrates varied cutting-edge Hardware, Gateways, Cloud & Application using sensors, data gateways, wireless communication, cloud-based data centers, analytical software, data visualization tools, IoT, artificial intelligence, machine learning, programmed notifications etc. This builds a robust platform for making civil infrastructure more intelligent, intuitive, innovative, sustainable and resilient.
The option of including third party elements in the ecosystem is available. The Smart Structures solution is comprehensive but offers flexibility in integration with third party sensor feeds from the infrastructure and external environmental data such as atmospheric, weather, or traffic data.
Smart Structures offers a range of sensors that are tested for full functionality when embedded in concrete. The offering includes accelerometers, strain gauges, corrosion and temperature sensors.
Sensor Packs are embedded inside concrete and connected to a data port placed on the surface of the concrete

We boldly take the challenge of IoT integration into an industry involving concrete, heavy iron structures, water, and corrosive elements of nature. The numerous parameters, data types and analysis surrounding the smart structure decision support system is handled most efficiently for data integrity, data storage, data analysis and data-driven decisions by Smart Structures’ cloud data centers.
IoT Intelligent Software
SmartHub is a modern IoT-based centralized solution for entire construction planning, execution, and monitoring. With its integrated Artificial Intelligence (AI); Machine Learning (ML); GUI-format data, analysis, reports, dashboards, maps, Smart Notifications and Alerts, it’s enabled to give a 360-degree view of the structural health of an infrastructure asset over its entire life cycle.
Our platform connects to multiple gateways across the world using Rest API protocol. The latency is as low as 5 minutes in delivering real time update. Our state-of-the-art gateways are the broker between EDC sensors and the strong analytics of our SmartHub platform.
SmartHub has a highly secure user interface that makes intelligent sense of the multitude of sensor feeds to give owners, operators, and civic administration timely information to manage their assets round the clock across the various stages of the infrastructure asset lifecycle. Such vital information especially crucial when high-speed decisions are to be taken in an emergency.
SmartHub, the Infrastructure Monitoring System, is provided to Smart Structures clients on a SaaS platform and is accessible securely via the Internet. While the underlying analytical engines are highly sophisticated, the information is presented through simple, easy to interpret dashboards that are customized to the information needs of different user groups, projects, geography etc.
