Project description This project focuses on the extraction of vertical structures in urban areas with the aid of multi-sensor data gathered using a mobile mapping system (MMS). All structures which extend vertically upwards from the ground are of interest, and in particular building façades. The use of vehicles equipped with multiple sensors will facilitate the scanning of street-facing façades and the analysis of their solar potential. The influence of objects which conceal façades will need to be factored into both the geometric modelling of façades and evaluation of their energy efficiency. The TIR cameras integrated into the MMS will permit thermographic façade analysis and support the diagnosis of a building’s level of energy efficiency. As a result of experience gained in the use of data capture methods in busy urban contexts and the assessment of the energy efficiency of specific building sections, the project will also contribute towards the achievement of the goals defined in the German government’s energy policies. The project will also yield solutions which can be integrated into other domestic and European initiatives, for example the mapping of noise emissions and the valuation of municipal assets (required in connection with new asset management procedures introduced at municipal level in Germany).
