Virtual Reality.

The digital twin can also be used to create virtual 3D representations of a building – what is referred to as virtual reality. To achieve this, 3D model data from the dbA² NG platform is processed so it can be displayed in 3D glasses together with documentation and engineering data. This enables the viewer to move virtually through the infrastructure model and perform animated operating actions without leaving the workplace. The latest version of all documents and engineering data are available to the user at the touch of a button.

The Virtual Test and Training Facility (TUSA) is a project that cablex has implemented on behalf of SBB. The TUSA project trains SBB staff in the operation and maintenance of the electrical systems. To this end, a digital image (digital twin) of the technical facilities was created.

We have already successfully used these technologies on behalf of Swiss Federal Railways (SBB AG) to train maintenance personnel in the Ceneri Base Tunnel. The advantages are clear:

  • The training can be carried out anywhere, anytime and as often as required.
  • Students avoid exposure to the dangers of working in a tunnel.
  • There is no need to interrupt train services for the training.
  • The costs for training are reduced, as the costs for creating and maintaining a 1:1 reconstruction are eliminated.
  • A scientific study carried out by the Konstanz University of Applied Sciences has shown that VR training is more sustainable than real training.

The Ceneri Base Tunnel project.

A large tunnel building project such as the Ceneri Base Tunnel presents both challenges and opportunities for innovation and agility in the construction sector. Digitisation is becoming increasingly widespread in the infrastructure sector. Hence the Ceneri Base Tunnel project also makes use of the added value that can be provided by new technologies and methods. Thanks to the interdisciplinary team, open and honest error handling and our employees' high level of motivation, we can overcome the challenges of this project with innovative ideas.

 


What do we offer our customers in the field of digitalisation?

Digitalisation.

Digitalisation.

Just imagine you could digitally map your entire infrastructure project – from the initial idea through planning and construction and even operation. As the most significant partner for Swiss network construction, we are a driving force behind digital transformation. Join us in this mission and help shape the digital transformation in your own organisation – together with cablex. 

Building Information Modeling (BIM).

Building Information Modeling (BIM).

Building information modelling (BIM) combines software tools and management disciplines to digitise and standardise the planning, creation and operating processes of a construction project and make them available and fully transparent to all parties involved. This increases project efficiency over the entire lifecycle and minimises outlay in terms of time, resources and costs. 

The digital construction site.

The digital construction site.

cablex uses dbA² NG, which was specially developed in house, as a central data management platform for the digital construction site. The dbA² NG platform supports all the stakeholders of a construction project through the phases of the SIA 112 performance model, from phase 1 "Strategic planning" up to phase 6 "Operation". Here, the platform provides a functional, logically-structured and easy-to-use user interface for entering and processing project data. 

Virtual Reality.

The digital twin can also be used to create virtual 3D representations of a building – what is referred to as virtual reality. To achieve this, 3D model data from the dbA² NG platform is processed so it can be displayed in 3D glasses together with documentation and engineering data. 

Augmented Reality.

Augmented Reality.

To provide professional support for installation and maintenance work, cablex uses augmented reality (AR). The purpose of the application is to provide the user with all the information needed to perform their tasks in context-sensitive and user-friendly AR glasses. 

Cable management.

Cable management.

Geographic information systems are indispensable when planning technical installations in large structures or over long distances. cablex uses LIDS 7 from Asseco BERIT for cable planning and management. LIDS is an open geographical information system and resource management tool in one and was developed to collect, manage and analyse spatially oriented data in institutions of all sizes and areas.
