Helping your house feel good (and bad) vibrations

Juan Caicedo • TEDxUofSC

Using floor vibrations to identify falls can potentially change how we care for older adults.


What do we do?

The Structural Dynamics and Intelligent Infrastructure (SDII) research group aims at discovering fundamental knowledge that leads to the advancement of infrastructural systems that benefit society.

Intelligent infrastructure

Use of sensing, data analytics (e.g. machine learning) and other advanced techniques to enhance the performance and enhancing the uses of structural systems.

Structural dynamics

Understanding how structures move in the case of dynamic excitation.  Also, using these vibrations to extend the use of structural systems.

Uncertainty quantification

Estimating the level of uncertainty.  We are particularly interested in using uncertainty quantification for intelligent infrastructure applications.
