Abstract: In this article we will talk about the use of AIoT, its use for building smart homes, equipment management, how civil engineering can take advantage of IoT technology to bring innovations to the market that benefit consumers and companies. Giving consumers control over their home, meaning that even in their absence, they have control over temperature management, water flow, security cameras, air conditioning and electricity, avoiding waste of resources, and cutting costs. Giving companies control over their construction equipment, managing data for each project, better use of materials and avoiding waste of resources, controlling the quality of materials. We will also talk about the technological advances that need to be made in civil engineering, and the reason why old methods will no longer be able to meet future demands, whether from customers or companies themselves.

Keywords: AIoT, Internet of Things, Smart Construction, Iots, customer service.


Internet of Things is the technology that allows objects to connect to an online network, collecting and transmitting data in In this article we will talk about the integration of automation and IoT technology for construction materials management.

Automation and Iots in civil construction

Despite being a new area in civil construction, are widely used in managing construction materials in small, medium and large stocks, the use of tesar technology is made to monitor material stocks and to control of the material storage process. real time.

As the name says, through the internet of things, physical objects “use” the internet to generate information. This communication of “things” happens through sensors that monitor the performance and activities of such objects. Sensors in the lighting system of a warehouse, which can measure energy use and room temperature, are a clear example of the Internet of Things application.

By reading this information, it is possible to control light and climate, directing the application of resources in a more efficient and sustainable way, according to the demand for use.

It is worth highlighting that one of the biggest differences in AIoT solutions for the sector are:

  • Simplicity and management in one click.
  • Data consolidation.
  • APS AIoTs for managing inbound and outbound logistics ensuring flow accuracy.
  • AIoTs POS for issuing tax coupons.
  • IoTs SHOP with customer service resources via product catalog

In this segment, credit is widely used and we need to have a call center that can provide all of your customer's information with great speed, order blocking controls (if any commercial or financial situation is out of alignment). As the data is all unified, it facilitates management and operation, both at headquarters and in its stores, allowing the customer to buy in one store and make payment in another. Or, if you buy in installments and need a detailed analysis, your entire history will be available for consultation.

Future delivery control is another big difference. This is one of the biggest headaches for companies, as in addition to having control over customers' tax credits, the item that was purchased will need to be available and easily accessible in the system, if the customer wishes.

All price formation, promotional policies, application of rates differentiated by payment conditions, are defined through AIoTs ERP. The system meets the entire range of variables that commerce offers its customers.

The traditional home appliance market is close to saturation. Companies must present innovative services to consumers, improving user experiences. The intelligent building materials management system is the next step beyond traditional equipment management methods. The smart controllers that will be designed in this study contain WeMos D1 and WiFi Arduino UNO chips and an ACS712-20A, range current sensor with current data collection and wireless transmission functions. It can be connected to real electrical appliances to test the collected data transmitted to the platform to be recorded, and use linear regression to predict material inventory. To manage material stock, when the defined material stock reaches the minimum limit, a message will be sent asking the user.
