summary In recent years, the rapid evolution of Industry 5.0 technologies has accelerated the digital transformation of many industries, including construction. Construction professionals and academics have been applying digital and robotic technologies to address various challenges. Construction 5.0 technologies offer new perspectives to analyse and empower theoretical techniques, aiming to improve construction productivity. However, the theoretical frameworks and empirical evidence for productivity improvement need further reinforcement. Topics of Interest Include, but Are Not Limited To:
  • Building information modelling
  • Digital twins
  • Reality capture
  • Extended virtual/augmented/mixed reality
  • Computer vision
  • Internet of things
  • Wearable sensors
  • Big data
  • Blockchain
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cloud computing
  • Robotics
  • Additive manufacturing
  • Offsite construction
  • Unmanned aerial and ground vehicles
  • Other topics related to Construction 5.0 (e.g., human-centred engineering, sustainable construction, resilient construction, circular design/production, social aspects of Construction 5.0)
The full papers need to be submitted by 30 November 2024 so that they can be considered in this special issue.
