Enterprise Digitization

Enterprise Digitization

As technology continues to advance, companies in even the most traditional industries will need to incorporate new technologies into their operations in order to remain competitive. Technology allows enterprises to reduce their overhead costs, provide data to their customers, and have an instant picture of their operations at any given time.

Use your knowledge of a company of your choice to create a “control centre” that management within the company can use. Use your creativity to help discover new ways for enterprises to plan, organize, and deliver their product or service!

The Future of BIM

The Future of BIM

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is being adopted by the construction industry to facilitate and promote collaborations between stakeholders within a project. BIM is a 3D model front-loaded with information that is used for a variety of purposes in a project including designing, scheduling, and cost estimation; however, there is further potential for innovation and intelligence.

What is the next big advance in Building Information Modelling? Use your experience and expertise to develop a cutting-edge way for BIM to take into account ergonomics, environmental concerns, or parametric modelling.

VR Spectator Experience

VR Spectator Experience

Have you ever wanted to be in the front row of the most in-demand concerts, behind the glass at your favourite team’s game, or at the New Year’s Eve ball drop in Times Square while still in the comfort of your own home? Use virtual reality to open these live experiences to people around the world. Develop ways for a venue to sell multiple tickets for the same seat to give people a virtual experience of the ultimate front row seat or backstage pass.

Design of Robot-crew for Task X

Design of Robot-crew for Task X

As robotic technologies have advanced and the cost of adoption has decreased in recent decades, it is emerging as a viable option for some of the repetitive tasks in construction.

In this challenge, you need to focus on one specific construction task (i.e., task X) and develop a robotics solution (robo-crew) to replace all or part of the human input required for the task. Use your creativity and analytical skills to design a desirable scenario in which robots are used alongside human workers to augment their work, keep them safer, and boost productivity!
