Carbin App: Fix Our Roads

For many of us, smartphones have become an inevitable part of our daily lives. Instant access to the internet with a multitude of apps offers nowadays far more than just communication: a remote for your thermostat, source of navigation, or a monitor for your heart. But what if smartphones could also monitor road safety, measure their quality and predict their future. In this session hear about how the Carbin app can be used to monitor and improve the state of our infrastructure and traffic while reducing vehicle fuel consumption and their emissions.

Liquid, Crystal, and Gas Cities

A city texture reveals a lot about how a city will respond to high winds in a big storm, heat, or to a major environmental event like a hurricane or earthquake. Hear how data from familiar programs like Google Maps to capture the internal structure of city environments and how the information can be used to improve city energy management strategies and to increase building, city, and community resilience.

Energy Storing and Emitting Concrete

Imagine if the walls of your home or office stored enough energy to charge your phone or laptop. What if electric cars could get charged simply by the power stored in parking garage walls? In this session, researchers will discuss their work with smart concrete and how they are turning it into a form of energy storage.

Presented by Jacob Roxon and Nicolas Chanut and based on research conducted by Chanut, Roland Pellenq, Katerina Ioannidou, Franz-Josef Ulm, Thibaut Divoux, Nancy Soliman, and Renal Backov.
