The Dimension Remota (DimRem) project proposes an ecosystem of services and digital solutions to facilitate technical inspections of buildings and infrastructure. It aims to enable the integration of next-generation technologies for automating incidents, reviews, approvals, and collaborative workflow in these inspections. This includes real-time geolocation of the operators conducting the inspections and the equipment being managed. The project also involves integrating incidents into a mobile application with augmented reality and linking them to web environments with BIM and point clouds from asset digitization.

Once operator inspections are automated, unmanned vehicles, such as a Rover, are intended to replicate the route and primary actions performed by the operator. Therefore, for conducting automated remote inspections, a digital platform is combined with the use of mobile devices, sensors, scanners, and rovers. This integration of cyber-physical technologies will entail the use of a digital twin ecosystem for remote and automated inspection of building or infrastructure assets.
