Decision Support System - Translational research on novel methods of 3d viewing technologies for tunnel design and construction.

This multi-firm project addresses requirements of several civil engineering companies. The objectives are:

  • Specification, design and development of new forms of combined, integrated and interactive 3d-visualizations for tunnel data. Focus will be on tunneling machines and the (partly real-time) machine data they produce.
  • Further development, implementation and test of already existing software systems (3d viewer applications) supporting decisions in tunneling projects by displaying the above mentioned new 3d-visualizations for tunneling machines.
  • Acquisition of data stemming from real tunnel projects for testing the viewer application.
  • Further integration of laser scan data and photogrammetric reconstruction data resulting from various other projects.
