Digital processes facilitate much more rapid and efficient planning and construction of urban infrastructure. Fraunhofer IPM has developed a tool which automatically interprets 3D environmental data using artificial intelligence methods to generate smart planning maps. Baden-Württemberg Minister of Economic Affairs, Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, has crowned the team of researchers “AI Champions Baden-Württemberg” for their innovative development. An AI based solution, developed by Fraunhofer IPM, now allows for both automated data interpretation and integration into smart maps for the first time. These maps lay the foundations for a fully automated planning process.
