INSITER is a research project within the EU research programme “Horizon 2020”. The key innovation of INSITER is the intuitive and cost-effective Augmented Reality (AR) for self-inspection. The use of AR –that connects virtual and physical buildings in their environments at real-time– will ensure that the targeted performance in the design model is realised. INSITER will thus eliminate the gaps in quality and energy-performance between design and realisation of energy-efficient buildings made of prefabricated components. Through new self-inspection techniques, INSITER will fully leverage the energy efficiency potentials of buildings based on prefab components, from design to construction, refurbishment and maintenance. It will scale-up the use of BIM for standardised inspection and commissioning protocols, involving all actors in the value-chain.
The project’s scientific and technological objectives are:
- to eliminate the gaps in quality and energy-performance between design and realisation of energy-efficient buildings by connecting the virtual model and the physical building through Augmented Reality (AR);
- to develop a set of intuitive, robust and cost-effective hardware and software for self-inspection during off-site and on-site working processes;
- to develop innovative protocols and guidelines for self-inspection and self-instruction of involved actors in the building process.
