Atmotube: air pollution monitor

Atmotube puts air pollution monitoring in your hands, and enables users to share readings in real-time and via social media.

Digital construction autumn 2015

Construction IT conferences: are we beginning to move beyond BIM and look at other, related fields, and to do so more affordably?

State of the (mobile) nation

Next week I will be attending the two-day COMIT/Fiatech conference at The Crystal in London’s Docklands (30-31 October 2014 – see previous post). COMIT’s previous conferences have seen a lot of content crammed into a single day, but this year’s builds on Fiatech’s successful European Summit and the two-day joint event will allow consideration of a …

COMIT combining forces with Fiatech

Earlier this year, I attended and spoke at the first European summit of Fiatech, the US-based but now increasingly international body focused on development and adoption of innovative practices and technologies to deliver business value throughout the life cycle of capital assets. The organisation is also closely aligned with the UK-based COMIT group, and next month the two will …

On Friday it announced the launch of its …
