The Section for Bridges and Other Civil Engineering Structures at the Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute (ZAG) is thrilled to announce the start of an innovative three-year Interreg research project BIM4CE – “Bridge monitoring using real-time data and digital twins for Central Europe“. The main objective of the project is to develop a scalable, economical, and standardized solution for the monitoring of aging bridges throughout Central Europe.
The strategy for BIM4CE revolves around creating a holistic solution for bridge management that’s straightforward yet efficient, aiding operators in making informed maintenance decisions without being excessively complicated or cost prohibitive. This solution aims to find the right blend of tried-and-tested technology and advanced innovations, such as sensor foils based on organic electronics and digital twin models, that optimally meet the requirements of bridge owners and managers.
The results of the project will help reduce the costs associated with infrastructure management, while still ensuring a high level of safety for the road infrastructure.
