The future of construction at the bauma 2022
Umdasch Group Ventures presents innovative solutions for the construction industry
Modularisation and automation on construction sites
Digitalisation and data management in the construction industry
Greater sustainability by reducing CO2
The future of the construction industry is a key concern. Construction sites and projects need to be managed with a safe, efficient and modern approach if we are to meet today’s challenges, as well as those of the future, in a reliable, environmentally friendly and economic way. This is the driving force behind the investments and innovations of Umdasch Group Ventures. The company’s R&D focuses on industrialisation, automation, standardisation and digitalisation along the entire construction process.
Experience the future at the bauma 2022
Umdasch Group Ventures – the Future & Innovation Hub of the Umdasch Group – is the strong growth and technology lever for new solutions and business models. The innovative products showcased at the bauma 2022 in Munich will demonstrate the potential of modularisation and automation on construction sites, as well as the use of digitalisation and data management within the construction industry.
3D construction printing as an economic, sustainable and efficient alternative
Umdasch Group Ventures is currently focusing on the new opportunities presented by 3D construction printing, which offers an economic alternative to existing construction methods and has a diverse range of applications. Materials are only used where they are structurally necessary. The use of locally available raw materials makes this approach more economic, sustainable and resource-efficient. This is the reasoning behind a new mobile mixing and dosing plant that produces the printing material (printing ink) in situ on the construction site. Easy transport and maximum mobility means that the 3D construction printer is always readily available for a diverse range of purposes. Quick and simple to operate and also easy to clean, the printer lends itself to many applications on the construction site.
Construction progress tracking using a 3D computer vision system
Cameras with integrated artificial intelligence (AI) or computer vision systems are well-known devices for detecting objects and people. What makes Umdasch Group Ventures 3D computer vision system revolutionary and unique is the additional information about spatial positions. Objects and persons are recognised by AI. The system also determines their spatial position on the construction site, enabling it to determine construction progress or the current status of the building shell. When the system is installed high up, e.g. on the construction site crane, it provides a perfect overview of the shell construction site. To comply with data protection regulations, public areas are hidden from the picture and AI anonymises any people. The construction progress data is displayed in the digital 3D building model so that the site manager has virtually real-time access to it. The innovative construction progress recognition system from Umdasch Group Ventures is still in the beta phase, in which the AI is being further trained and optimised.
The 3D construction printer and 3D computer vision system with AI-based construction progress recognition enables Umdasch Group Ventures to modularise and automate construction sites and drive digitalisation and data management within the construction industry. It brings builders and construction companies clear competitive advantages and establishes the benchmark for the future.
