Abstract: In general, the construction industry lacks the change resistance due to which, there is no improvement in innovative style of construction, control over the assets and optimization of the construction process for better energy usage, resource allocation and assets management. Digital transformation is an ongoing challenge in the construction industry. Utilization of digital technologies to improve business process i.e. digitalization has enabled companies to reach great savings and earnings during the past decades. IOT is one such robust system which helps in rectifying the above problems. The future is Internet of Things which will transform the real-world object to the virtual world object. The purpose of this paper is twofold, first to identify and study the IOT applications relevant to construction industry and second investigate the factors which have hindered the implementation of IOT. The IOT sensors can use various types of connection devices such as Global Positioning System, Radio Frequency Identification, ZigBee Module, Wireless Sensor Network etc. It allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing infrastructure. The main aim is to identify different technologies in IOT to support Civil Engineering. Utilization of IOT applications to achieve smart design, Real time control, Safety working environment.
Keywords: IoT, Smart Construction, Real Time Monitoring.
