Fred Fort Flowers (1941) and Daniel Forst Flowers (1941) Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Big data is often associated with healthcare, social networks and computer systems. However, big data is making an impact in engineering: in applications ranging from smart cities to manufacturing. I will give examples of big data collection systems in the monitoring of urban infrastructure including buildings, streetlights and vehicles. I will then talk about how RFID can be used to generate and utilize big data in the supply chain and in manufacturing. I will talk about the applications we have been generating over the years.
