A significant problem in construction automation is the
difficulty of interfacing and integrating subsystems
(e.g. sensors, databases, visualization systems) into a
useful whole. In this paper, we describe our past and
present efforts toward the design and implementation of
network protocols to address this problem. Our current
design effort concentrates on communicating, "who, what,
where, and when" data over internet-protocol (IP)
networks, and is based on the IEEE 1278 (distributed
interactive simulation) protocol family, with some
extensions to meet the anticipated needs of construction
