Digital building permission is a highly discussed topic with recent developments around the world. The goal is to automate the process with the help of BIM models. A very challenging task in the automation of building code checking is the proof of escape routes. In the research project "BRISE-Vienna" we have taken up this challenge. We are pleased to announce the publication of our results in the journal "Automation in Construction":
The key highlights of the publication are:
- A semi-automated method that meets the legal requirements in Vienna,
- a novel indoor navigation model that maps the characteristics of escape routes, and
- checking the width of escape routes taking into account the number of people actually fleeing along the routes.
