Constructive collaboration: inIT and Bremer SE plan final project month for DeepConcrete research project

The "DeepConcrete" transfer project ends on 31 May 2024. Representatives of the Institute for Industrial Information Technology (inIT) and Bremer SE therefore recently met in Paderborn to plan the final phase of the it's-OWL transfer pilot and present the results of the research project to date.

Constructive cooperation: Anton Pfeifer (inIT), Christian Hammerl (BREMER, Head of IT Department), Carsten Holtkamp (BREMER, Paderborn Management), Jan Ehlenbröker (inIT), Thomas Dück (BREMER, Head of Logistics Department), Peter Kußmann (BREMER, IT) and Robert Bakschik (inIT) plan the final month of the project.

DeepConcrete: real-time image processing and AI for mapping reinforced concrete

The project aims to develop methods for real-time image processing and artificial intelligence (AI) to map precast reinforced concrete elements from aerial imagery. This mapping serves the warehouse optimisation of BREMER SE and is an integral part of its digitalisation strategy to optimise the flow of goods and promote the long-term innovative capacity of the construction industry. DeepConcrete is being carried out by the Image Processing and Pattern Recognition, Sensor and Information Fusion working group headed by Prof Dr Volker Lohweg.

Presentation of the results at BREMER SE

During their visit to BREMER SE in Paderborn, inIT employees Anton Pfeifer, Jan Ehlenbröker and Robert Bakschik presented their research findings. In the brainstorming session that followed, the determination and ambition with which Bremer SE operates became clear. Research assistant Robert Bakschik summarised: "We are delighted that we have taken the first steps towards fully digitalised warehouse management together with Bremer SE."
