Safer built environment and smart cities have been the goal of many modern cities. The built environment includes 5 stages: urban planning, construction, occupation, demolition and renewal stage. Computer modelling aids safer urban planning by utilizing geographical information, artificial intelligence such as computer vision allows construction industry detects any risks on construction sites and demolition works. In occupation stage, property management allows camera to detect any strangers enter the buildings to enhance safety in buildings. In this special issue, we wish to shed light on the role of computer modelling in safer built environment and smart cities. Papers including but not limited to:

-Artificial intelligence modelling for construction safety
-Artificial neural network for building safety
-TinyML for built environment
-Digital Twins and computer modelling for the construction industry
-Building information modelling for safer built environment
-Smart cities modelling for safer built environment
-Smart urban planning by using computer vision modelling
-Natural Language Modelling for smart and safe cities analysis
-Ways to lower the safety risks at work in different stages of built environment
-Robot safety via computer modelling
