Olympia Odos participates in the program “Horizon 2020: Research and Innovation Actions (Horizon 2020 RIA)”, with the project COnstruction-phase diGItal Twin mOdel (COGITO). COGITO aims at accelerating the digitalization in lean construction as a steppingstone to achieve the industrialization of the construction sector, by taking advantage of the Digital Twins standard and creating virtual copies of the various procedures and simulating various project progress scenarios.
Thanks to real-time data collection tools it is possible to make valid predictions relevant to the prevention of accidents, structural tests and identification of problems. The COGITO toolkit introduces a new concept regarding the management of complex systems/ecosystems to be used in the construction and management of infrastructure projects. The program was launched in November 2020 and will last for 36 months.
OLYMPIA ODOS OPERATION S.A. is partner of the new research project HERON, which has been funded by the European Commission. The project will improve road maintenance, safety, and efficiency by relying on automated systems, robots, and deep machine learning techniques. The project aims to improve occupational safety and health among road workers, by reducing fatalities due to accidents and exposure to toxic fumes. It also aims to reduce traffic disruptions due to maintenance works and decrease the costs for carrying out these works.
HERON will result in an integrated automated system that performs maintenance roadworks. The system will also support the pre/post-intervention phase by aiding visual inspections and by dispensing/removing traffic cones in an automated manner.
