    Identification of workstations in earthwork operations from vehicle GPS data2017In: Automation in Construction, ISSN 0926-5805, E-ISSN 1872-7891, Vol. 83, p. 237-246Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper proposes a methodology for the identification of workstations in earthwork operations based on GPS traces from construction vehicles. The model incorporates relevant information extracted from the GPS data to infer locations of different workstations as probability distributions over the environment. Monitoring of workstation locations may support map inference for generating and continuously updating the layout and road network topology of the construction environment. A case study is conducted at a complex earthwork site in Sweden. The workstation identification methodology is used to infer the locations of loading stations based on vehicle speeds and interactions between vehicles, and the locations of dumping stations based on vehicle turning patterns. The results show that the proposed method is able to identify workstations in the earthwork environment efficiently and in sufficient detail.

    A longitudinal study of the adoption of IT technology in the Swedish building sector2014In: Automation in Construction, ISSN 0926-5805, E-ISSN 1872-7891, Vol. 37, p. 182-190Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The rapid development of IT technology has in the past decades created opportunities for faster and more efficient processes, and new working methods in the building industry. This paper presents the results of a longitudinal survey-based study (the "IT barometer") of IT use in the Swedish building industry, conducted at several intervals over the period 1998-2011. The results show a rapid increase in general IT use, and in the use of sector-specific tools. Improving communication and information sharing is a strong driving force for taking IT into use, for instance technologies such as EDM and EDI, although the adoption of the more complex applications (ie BIM) is slower. Interestingly "demands from employees" has over the years become a very important reason for companies to increase their IT use. Leading areas for planned IT investments include document handling and mobile equipment, with BIM technology rather low on the list.

    Geographic capabilities and limitations of Industry Foundation Classes2018In: Automation in Construction, ISSN 0926-5805, E-ISSN 1872-7891, Vol. 96, p. 554-566Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Infrastructure design is conducted in a 3D Cartesian coordinate system with the assumption that the Earth is flat and that the scale is constant over the entire project area. Map projections are commonly used to georeference the designed geometries before constructing them on the surface of the Earth. The scale in a map projection varies depending on the position in the map plane, which leads to scale distortions between the designed geometries and the geometries staked out for construction. These distortions are exaggerated for large longitudinal projects such as the construction of roads and railroads because the construction site spans a larger area. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is increasing in popularity as a way to manage information within a construction project. Its use is more widespread in the building industry, but it is currently being adopted by the infrastructure industry as well. The open BIM standard IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) has recently developed support for alignment geometries, and full support for disciplines such as road and railroad construction is underway. This study tests whether the current IFC standard can facilitate georeferencing with sufficiently low distortion for the construction of infrastructure. This is done by performing georeferencing using three different methods, all using the information provided in the IFC schema, and by calculating the scale distortions caused by the different methods. It is concluded that the geographic capabilities of the IFC schema could be improved by adding a separate scale factor for the horizontal plane and support for object-specific map projections.
