INSITER aims to eliminate the gaps in quality and energy-performance between design and realization of energy-efficient buildings based on prefabricated components.
A new methodology appears for self-instruction and self-inspection by construction workers, subcontractors, component suppliers and other stakeholders during on-site working processes, supported by a coherent set of hardware and software tools.
CARTIF is providing the equipment and the technniques to meet not only the combination of 2D and 3D information, but also blending these information´s with 3D spatial positioning systems for indoor/outdoor alignment & referencing (using geometrical, fiducial, GPS, IPS data) or just to be included into GIS environments. Th connection to AR/VR applications is also envisaged.
- Fully leveraging the energy efficiency potentials of buildings based on prefab components, from desing to construction, refurbishment nd maintenance.
- Scaling-up the use of BIM for standardized inspection and commissioning protocols, involving all actors in the value-chain.
- Enhancing the functionalitites and capabilities of measurement and diagnostic instruments (like portable 3D laser scanners, thermal imaging cameras, acoustic and vibration detectors, real-time sensors) by means of a smart API and data integration with a cloud-based BIM.
- Supporting accurate and comprehensive VR and AR on Geospatial Information, Global and Indoor Positioning Systems (GIS,GPS,IPS)
Intuitive and cost-effective AR that connects the virtual model and the physical building in real time for self-instruction and self-inspection of construction workers, subcontractors, component suppliers and other stakeholders during on-site working processes.
Cultural Heritage Projects:
RURITAGE enables rural regeneration through cultural and natural heritage (CNH). Has selected 13 rural areas as Role Models, i.e. successful cases regenerated thanks to CNH in 6 Systematic Innovation Areas.
Inovative and digital technologies to proceed to the technical inspection of historical buildings for public or private use. The methodology proposed is based on the HBIM (Heritage BIM) paradigm
SHCITY addresses the innovative challenge of creating a unique tool to manage historic urban centers and facilitate the work of the competent authorities in decision making. SHCITY will integrate data collected by sensor networks with artificial vision and 3D scanning technologies deployed in the urban area (Ávila), in order to respond to conservation, security, energy efficiency and tourism needs.
The goal of the project called “Energy Refurbishment Methodology for Heritage Buildings” (RENERPATH-2) is to establish a specific European pre-normative, focused on the energy refurbishment of heritage buildings, whether public or private use, in parallel with the newly constructed buildings law.
In INFIT, automatic data capture systems have been developed to obtain an accurate and objective image of the tunnel surface.
Currently, inspections of road and rail tunnels are carried out manually. CARTIF and Geocisa have studied how to implement technologies that allow inspecting automatically tunnels to achieve its preventive maintenance, developing a system which is able to organize the collected data.
The PAVIREX project, “New safer pavements in extreme temperature conditions”, was co-financed by the Ministry of Science and Innovation and FEDER Funds, through the INNPACTO 2011 call. The consortium of the project is formed by CARTIF, Grupo Campezo, Euroestudios , Proas (Cepsa), Eiffage, the University of Oviedo and the University of the Basque Country.
This project, which was developed between 2011 and 2013, established an energy rehabilitation methodology based on novel and non-intrusive techniques for the energy analysis applicable to public and private heritage buildings.
