4D printing promises intelligent materials, capable of adapting and changing based on external stimuli. From pipes that can automatically repair themselves to programmable biological tissues, the applications of these new structures are already advancing a total transformation of sectors such as construction, medicine or robotics.
Safety in building infrastructures and fulfilling contracts and services is of the utmost importance at Sacyr, especially with regard to people. As such, all of the technology we use is intended to create safer work environments.
Considered the most widely used artificial product in the world, concrete is also one of the materials whose manufacturing process has the greatest environmental impact. The risk of its intensive use, favored by urban concentration, tries to curb with solutions that seek to reduce the carbon footprint to zero by 2050.
We talk to science
We learn from nature to respect it, and we familiarize ourselves with its processes in order to advance in a sustainable way.
Predicting when and how seismic movements will occur on the Earth is one of the great aspirations of scientists. Technologies derived from artificial intelligence such as big data analysis or deep learning are beginning to provide clues about how to achieve this: neural networks or heat maps may be the key to predicting earthquakes.
