Project overview

Bridge monitoring using real-time data and digital twins for Central Europe

Bridges are critical transport infrastructure and need regular maintenance to be safe. Smart systems help with monitoring and allow to optimise maintenance processes. But they carry a high price tag. The BIM4CE project designs a new bridge management solution that will be effective for less money. The solution will be based on already existing technology and scalable. It will pave the way not only to more cost-efficient and safer smart systems in bridge monitoring but also in other sectors.

About the project

The goal of the project is to offer a bridge monitoring solution that is digital, affordable and scalable, benefiting all countries and citizens in the European Union, thus enabling a more cost-efficient, and safer asset management. Starting from bridges in central Europe, in the future other important buildings and assets will be equipped with similar smart systems for equal reasons. The approach and solution proposed in BIM4CE can be a blueprint for these endeavors.

Roadmap

1

Bridge monitoring

Currently in the case of older bridges, controls mostly involve manual and labour-intensive procedures that are typically time consuming and very costly. Tragic event of the Genoa bridge in 2018 highlighted the need for a better solution. BIM4CE tackles the challenge of aging bridge infrastructure in the CE region by developing a standardized and digitized European monitoring and maintenance solution for existing bridges that is cost-effective, easy-to-use and scalable.
