Generative design is a groundbreaking approach to design that leverages artificial intelligence and evolutionary algorithms.
It's a process where the designer inputs goals and parameters, such as unit costs, geometric constraint, and spatial requirements, into the generative design software. The software then uses these inputs to explore a vast number a solution, quickly generating design alternatives.
This method is particularly powerful in complex projects like infrastructure development, where there are numerous variables and constraints to consider.
Generative design not only accelerates the design process but also reveals possibilities that might not be immediately apparent through traditional design methods. It optimizes for the best outcome, ensuring efficiency, innovation, and sustainability in the final design.
What is generative design?
Infraspace is a specialized tool designed for civil infrastructure projects, particularly tailored for the planning, design and optimization of roads, railways, power transmission lines, and pipelines.
These infrastructure types share a common critical element: the importance of their alignment and properties. This aspect significantly influences both the cost and environmental impact of a project.
Moreover, Infraspace is not just limited to the initial planning stages. Its flexibility makes it an invaluable tool throughout different phases of a project. From the early ideation stage to optimization in later stages.
In what kind of projects can Infraspace be used?
✅Power transmission lines ✅Pipelines
What kind of input is used in Infraspace?
Infraspace's generative algorithm is designed to work with a variety of data sources, ensuring flexibility and precision in infrastructure project optimization and design. The types of input it can utilize include:
Digital Terrain Models (DTMs)
Geographic Information System (GIS) Data
Our users can input their own data regarding costs, geometric properties, and other relevant project-specific details. Our users benefit from the ability to create their own libraries of definitions, adding an extra layer of customization and precision to the design process.
In addition to these personalized inputs, Infraspace offers integrations with several openly available data sources. This feature is particularly useful for quickly and efficiently starting a project, providing access to a wealth of relevant data without the need for extensive initial data collection. These integrations ensure that users have all the necessary tools and information at their fingertips, streamlining the process.
