Introduction
The technological advances of the past two decades or so have nurtured the research platform to transform the way urban infrastructure is studied, designed and managed. Due to increasing complexities and demand for resources to build and manage these infrastructure systems, the use of technology is inevitable for efficient and effective solutions. The special issue on Advances in Technology for safe, sustainable and resilient infrastructure highlights the technological advances in terms of approaches, tools, techniques, methodologies and policies to make our infrastructure safe, sustainable and resilient.

Objective
The aim of this special issue is to showcase cross-disciplinary research on the latest technological developments, challenges and risks focusing on safe, sustainable and resilient infrastructure. The scope will be limited to technological systems, tools and methods related to transportation, buildings, energy and water systems. Papers considered for publication must contain a clear and well-defined technological component related to environmental, economic or social aspects of sustainability/safety/resiliency of these complex infrastructure systems.

Selected papers from SEES Conference are invited to this special issue. All extended manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor and peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees.

Recommended Topics
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Smart grids
  • Innovative tools and methods for smart cities
  • Unmanned Air Vehicles for infrastructure management and monitoring
  • BIM/CIM Modeling tools
  • Occupational health and safety through automation (tools, systems and software)
  • Smart cities (systems of systems connectivity and optimization)
  • Smart sensing and data collection (Remote Sensing, Radar, Lidar, Thermal Remote Sensing)
  • Simulation technologies
  • Energy efficient buildings
  • Broad technology challenges, opportunities and risks
