The BIM principle (Building Information Management) is currently establishing itself worldwide in the planning phase of construction projects. In the EU-H2020 project BIMProve, the goal is to extend this digitalization to the construction phase of larger building projects. In real time, the current construction status is recorded by autonomous systems - ground-based and in the air. The use of this data is manifold:
- early detection of defects
- real-time tracking of current construction Progress
- detection of sources of danger
- optimized construction processes through close linking of digital planning tools with reality
Our contribution is the conception of data acquisition in the construction field by means of drones and the implementation with our systems.
