Kick-off Meeting inBiberach
The first meeting of the consortium took place on 02.07.2019 at Liebherr GmbH in Biberach. The research institutions and companies introduced each other. Results of the first work packages were developed in various workshops and the further course of action was coordinated
Second Project-Meeting in Langen
For the second project meeting, the network partners met on 25.09.2019 at Leonhard Weiss in Langen. After the welcome by Prof. Brell-Cokcan (IP) and Mr. Weichsel (Leonhard Weiss), the project partners presented their process models and discussed common interfaces along the value chain. Significant interfaces were identified and evaluated through systematic surveys.
Third Project-Meeting in Bersenbrück
On the fifth of November, WURST Stahlbau invited the IoC consortium to the third project meeting in Bersenbrück. After WURST presented itself with development projects and digitalization strategies, the development status of the application scenario was presented and potentials and risks of collaborative work were discussed. In addition, the partners have taken position with regard to common interests and have focused the further course of action.
Fourth Project-Meeting inAachen
The WZL and the IP of RWTH Aachen University have invited the IoC network partners in Aachen to the fourth project meeting. The meeting took place on February 5th and the IoC partners got an insight into current research projects at RWTH Aachen University. On the following day the opening of the reference construction site Campus West took place, in which all the IoC partners participated.
Digitale Expension of the Project Meetings in 2020
Over 2020, the IoC project meetings were expanded digitally. The consortium meetings were expanded by regular working group meetings and overarching jour fixe. Thus, the progress and developments in the IoC can be ensured - despite the contact restrictions by COVID19. The consortium meeting on 28.10.2020 therefore took place digitally.
Tenth Project Meeting in Aachen
On 15.09.2021, the IoC project partners gathered in large numbers at RWTH Aachen University. At the Chair of Individualized Construction Production, the network and prefabrication demonstrators were presented. Subsequently, the meeting was continued on the reference construction site Campus West with the further developments for intralogistics, economic efficiency and assembly.
Together with swedish partners the EUREKA-Project Icon 4.0 (European Collaboration to extend the Internet of Construction towards Agile Construction 4.0) was started at the beginning of 2021. Icon 4.0 extends the IoC approach for construction 4.0 by considering a continuous digital information flow in the implementation of masonry construction. The Swedish-German collaboration thus enables a international and cross-building material view of the construction value chain within the European community for the IoC project.
IoC-Start of the Demonstrator
The first construction examination for the IoC demonstrator took place at the Reference Construction Site Campus West in October. Together with LEONARD WEISS GmbH & Co. KG, the IoC systematics for the reinforced concrete was examined under real conditions. The aim of the demonstrator is to validate the IoC systematics by integrating and testing cyber-physical systems on the construction site.
Steel construction demonstrator in action at Lamparter
The twelfth IoC project meeting was held at Lamparter in Kassel. On site, the application of the IoC steel construction demonstrator was presented under real conditions to the consortium during a hybrid event. The Chair of Individualized Construction Production and Robots in Architecture Research UG had tested the use of the flexible mobile robot platforms on site with Lamparter over a period of two weeks and had further developed it specifically for steel construction. Results are promising: The robot assists with assembly, for example by transporting and precisely positioning components.
Assembly on Reference Site
The assembly of the IoC demonstrator took place on the Reference Site Campus West. Together with the companies Annen Holzbau, WURST Stahlbau, LEONHARD WEISS and Liebherr, the prefabricated steel and timber elements were mounted on the reinforced concrete columns. Based on the assembly, the developments of the IoC consortium could be tested and further developed under real conditions. The developments include, among others, the digital crane assistance system, the IoC ontology and automated construction progress recognition.
Consortium meeting at Annen company
The thirteenth consortium meeting took place at the Annen company in Manternach. The consortium was shown impressive insights into timber construction. Mr. Annen demonstrated the possibilities of timber construction and individualized building production at the new production hall in Manternach. The new building is based on more than 7000 single parts with individual dimensions, which could be planned by digital tools in a high level of detail suitable for production. The presentation illustrates the potential of digitalization, which can be expanded in the future through IoC developments.
Internet of Construction at digitalBAU
The results of Internet of Construction were presented at digitalBAU from 31.05. to 02.06. in Cologne. The researchers and developers of the Chair of Individualized Construction Production and involved industry partners presented the implementation of the project on the reference construction site at Campus West for the first time at the Startup stand 119/17 in Hall 5. The public interest for the project, which was also presented by Prof. Brell-Cokcan in her key note at the worldarchitecture forum, was great. The need for cross-company collaboration in construction, digitally enhanced by the IoC system, was confirmed as highly relevant in numerous expert discussions. Visitors were able to perform IoC developments of construction site logistics and assembly in real life on a scaled model with an AR application developed by students (Christine Lappe, Hannes Reuther and Chu Han Wu) of the master program Constructions&Robotics as a companion project in interdisciplinary teaching at RWTH Aachen University.
With our associated partners Bauforumstahl and Autodesk, results of the research on robotics in steel construction in the form of working aids and the IoC systematics are also made available in teaching to a wide audience in a wide variety of training levels.
