Revolutionising the tunnel industry
Tunnelware aims to accelerate construction by improving information flow. Tunnelware is a digital twin of a tunnel construction system across its lifecycle, using real-time data to enable understanding, learning and reasoning. In terms of automated production and level of digitalization, the tunnel construction industry is still significantly behind other industries. Nevertheless, the megatrends like Big Data or the Internet of Things offer great opportunities for the future development of the tunnel construction sector. Prerequisite for the successful Tunnel Construction 4.0 is the creation of a digital twin of a tunnel construction site. CIM (Construction/Civil Information Modeling) enables architects and planners to come together and work on a set of 3D models. This in return, creates an interactive project which promotes real-time collaboration. When the architects and engineers are collaborating, planning and sharing the information of the project, they are effectively employing CIM. Through the use of CIM, projects of any scale are able to be constructed, this could be something as small as an tunnel cross passage to a full-fledged urban Metro tunnel.
Tunnelware is a software based on game engine for managing and controlling technically the tunnel construction process specifically done with tunnel boring machines. Our smart cloud-based management system lets you visualise and analyse the process and data in a 5D format. All data generated will be stopped in here with full security designed by our experienced development team. The system will improve the construction process at every stage, delivering faster builds to a higher quality with fewer defects and more sustainable tunnels.
BIMLedger streamlines project delivery and payment. In a BIM process, the model can be seen as the contract between the owner, the GC and the subcontractor. The physical construction needs to match the model - if any deviations occur, they need to be fixed. Every error or inconsistency will lead to a change order. To remove the contractual paperwork and the expensive and time-consuming process, blockchain will be used in real-time with our solution BIMLedger.
The Tunnelware cloud solution acquires all data generated by machines and monitoring in real-time. This cloud solution can be hosted public or private server. The security of your data is always our highest priority.
Data Analytics & Visualisation
As a consequence of our extensive experience in tunnel construction and 3D game design, Tunnelware can provide you the best ever analyses of data in 3D in real-time. Historical data analysis is also possible within seconds for the whole tunnel length. This analysis can be used for future tunnel projects by the Tender department of yours. All these visualisations will be on a GIS platform for multiple machines located in different geographical locations.
Tunnelware lets you generate custom reports for construction processes based on daily, weekly, monthly, and on full project time scales. Shift reports are also possible with the complete ease of filling out the report without even being logged in to the computer. Personnel management reports are also possible on a monthly basis for managing human resources. All the reports have full support of business intelligence tools to generate the right report to present to the client and in internal team meetings.
Sensor Data Management
Tunnelware lets you manage the sensors with our beautifully designed UI. Management of sensors means it lets you deploy any sensor data on the fly and add them to any report or analysis template. Sensor calibration is also possible on the fly. Notifications of any error will be sent to registered e-mail addresses or mobile phone numbers.
Virtual Meeting Room
People from different geographical locations and departments can meet in real time in a virtual meeting room to discuss the ongoing tunnel construction process, shift reports generated by Tunnel Engineers and to share their experience to make the process of construction completely smooth and hassle-free. The decision taken will be uploaded on the server immediately for any further action to be taken by the ground force.
Cutter Tool Management
Disc cutters of the cutting wheel can be monitored virtually by the sensor data and documented while replacing for inventory control.
The system collects and analyses data from sensors on and below the ground to create a 3D visualization of a prediction of the ground conditions a few meters ahead of the machine. This reduces the risk of any accident to the urban area above or below the existing tunnels.
Tunnel segments in the segment stock yard will be managed via drone. All data will be transferred to the system in real-time and can be accessed virtually.
These are the people with expertise in the tunnel industry
who are guiding us to make Tunnelware a perfect fit for the industry.
