Interactive concrete – Sensors and RFID tags

Interactive concrete – Sensors ans RFID tages: new technologies for concrete products with higher value-added

This technology-watch study focuses on sensors, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags, and the treatment and the use of the associated data. After a synthesis of techniques and progress in sensors and RFID tags, new developments for concrete products in construction and civil engineering markets are identified. For each area, specific applications, and products already marketed or prototypes showing the extent of these new functionalities are presented.
