Digital Construction

Workshop Theme

  • Opportunities and challenges of digital technologies and various 3D printing methods (contour crafting, shotcrete, particle-bed, etc.) in construction engineering
  • Reality capture sensors and systems for automated inspection in digital construction (from component to building scale)
  • Progress monitoring of large construction projects (buildings, bridges, etc.)
  • Data exchange between inspection systems and BIM/FIM
  • Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality in digital construction
  • As-built vs. as-designed and evaluation of geometric conformity in 3D printing (co-registration, inspection metrics, etc.)
  • Digital twins in construction engineering
  • Computer vision in digital construction: co-registration, detection, localization, tracking and assessment of construction sites
  • Evaluation and monitoring of construction during its lifespan
  • Automated risk assessment and safety hazard identification
  • Increasing automation (IoT, Industry 4.0, etc.) and remote inspection
