Artificial Intelligence in Construction
DFKI is working on various projects and initiatives to establish methods and technologies using Artificial Intelligence in the construction industry. Our goal is to tap into application-oriented AI technologies in relevant areas of the construction sector.
The construction industry has a lot of catching up to do in terms of digitization: While BIM systems (Building Information Modeling) and modeling and simulation tools are already being used in construction planning, in the actual execution, i.e. for the valuable practical work on the construction site itself with its various trades, analog media and processes still dominate.
The ConWearDi project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), is one example that is geared towards new strategies. Together with other project partners, DFKI developed innovative, technology-based services driven by digital construction processes, where various value chains in the construction industry are interconnected.
The Embedded Intelligence research department shows how an automatic recognition of the state of construction, remote management and predictive maintenance can be implemented on site. Intelligent sensors inside construction materials, on the construction site or built into machines supply the AI technologies with data. During the project, a web platform, based on Industry 4.0 technologies was developed that enables a digital exchange of information between all parties involved in the construction and enables intelligent planning and control services as well as continuous quality assurance and documentation processes. This makes it possible to utilize real-time information for intelligent control and monitoring of construction processes in the future.
