“BIM Joint Research Center” and “Digital City Laboratory” with Tsinghua University，Set up “Digital Building” Research Center with Huazhong University of Science and Technology，Established deep technology cooperation on BIM technology, digital building and AI with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, University of Maryland and University of Technology Sydney.
Outstanding talents at home and abroad are introduced to form an BIM solution for the project lifecycle to match IoT data with BIM models. The solution has been successfully applied to more than 1,000 enterprises and more than 2,000 large-scale construction projects. Also, it has been deeply applied to more than 100 projects based on the BIM production management module.
A controllable, secure and self-developed graphic technology platform was developed that covers key technical areas such as model data management, geometric modeling algorithm and graphic display rendering,and helps to achieve rapid development as well as constant upgrading of products with advanced module technology. In the aspect of large-model display, it has reached the domestic leading and international advanced level.
The three-layer (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS) cloud computing technology system, consisting of mixed cloud infrastructure, basic cloud services, a cloud product R&D system, a cloud product operation system and an ITIL operation and maintenance management system, which provides efficient support for the transformation of products to “Cloud + End + Data” .
The industrial big data technology platform and industrial big data warehouse provide comprehensive and timely price information of equipment and materials, as well as indicator data information about a variety of typical projects.
The deep learning-based natural language processing technology has been widely applied to areas such as intelligent pricing, intelligent CAD recognition and intelligent customer service, with breakthroughs made in semantic understanding, text parsing and intelligent question answering. The computer vision technology has become capable of recognizing many kinds of objects and scenes on construction sites, and got commercialized to support efficient and real-time construction site management.
The industrial-grade IoT platform Zhulian supports millions of devices to connect, control, manage and collect data from different devices, making it possible to carry out all-process tasks such as equipment data acquisition, streaming analysis, massive event storage and application visualization. At present, the mainstream on-site equipment connection has been finished, information of billions of equipment sensors has been stored, and comprehensive real-time sensing of construction sites has been realized, which makes construction management products “digital and online”.
