Impact Assessment and Exploitation Interim Report

Detailed assessment of the project footprint in terms of KPIs and exploitable assets in period 1, including contributions to standardisation. Overview of expected business models and sustainability measures.

Concept descriptions of user interfaces and human-robot interaction

Concept descriptions of user interfaces and interaction scenarios with robots/HRI activities. The first version will be delivered M8, and updated after sprints (at M13, M18; and M24 if needed).

Dissemination and Communication Interim Report

Midterm documentation of the actions taken, and outcomes achieved in relation to the promotional strategies during the first period of the project, having D4.1 as baseline. This will include the assessment of the Agile Stakeholder Management strategy.

User interface implementation description

According to WP1-2 concept and definition of user interfaces the implementation of the user interfaces for different devices and stakeholder groups is described. The description contains the interfaces BIM@Wearable, BIM@Truck, BIM@Anywhere, BIM@Manager, BIM@Site, BIM@Client, BIM@Fire and BIM@Risk for the respective user groups.

Detailed description of the safety functionalities and worker notifications

Report on what functionalities are included, how they interface with other functionalities, and what information is passed on to the workers and how (updated after the PoC at M20).

B¦IMprove Impact Master Plan

This document outlines the overall project dissemination, communication and exploitation strategies. The plan will also provide an overview of the standardization landscape in the area of BIM and will be the basis for further standardization activities in the project.

Use-Case requirements

Explains the main focus of the use case. Analyse the needs in form of parameters on the BIM model and also in Level of Detail. Communicate with other industry partners to share these needs. Evaluate possible technical complications, such as the need for an internet coverage system in underground areas. All industrial partners should do this task. Updated every 6 months, until use-cases are not implemented.

Open Interface Description for stationery, ground and UAV based data acquisition systems

With regard to the open use of other systems, an open software and hardware interface is defined in B¦IMprove and the implementation is described here for stationery and ground-based data acquisition systems.

Prototype system description and test results

Documentation of the prototype system and its results

Layer Services description

Detailed description of the B¦IMprove basic layer services. General structure, interface structure, data structure, expandability, implementation, data security, software documentationUpdated at each Cycle M18 and M24.

Impact Assessment and Exploitation Final Report

Evaluation of the impact created by the project, outlining the exploitation model followed and sustainability strategy proposed. This will include key exploitable assets, contribution to SDOs, market readiness assessment and knowledge and protection management plan.

Risk and safety assessment method

A common risk detection methodology for the three demo sites based on their safety assessment.

Dissemination and Communication Final Report

Final review of outreach capacity attained by the project, giving special emphasis on the outcomes during period 2.

Safety-critical situation detection

Software including documentation. The first version will be delivered M18, and updated at M27.

B¦IMprove reference architecture document

Diagrams of layer and user interaction, Detailed description of the information model of layer services used in B¦IMprove, B¦IMprove infrastructure and security document.

Technology Demonstrations

Demonstration of the single functional elements.Updated with newer results after each Cycle ends (M13, M19 and M25).

B¦IMprove Asset Portfolio

Compilation of exploitable results achieved by the project, which created impact during its lifetime and with the potential to contribute for further work, research or innovations. This includes all peer-reviewed and technical publications, source code repository, open research data, educational material, and standardisation/ open source contributions.

Outreach Material

Compilation of measures designed and released to run the dissemination and communication plans, including the project website, logo, presentation and documentation templates, social media channels and initial PR material design.
