Virtual reality simulation for renovation of runway 10/28 at Zurich Airport

Project overview

For the renovation of runway 10/28 at Zurich Airport we created a BIM model that generates not only plans and component lists, but also offers insight into future airport operation and thus guarantees efficient management/operation of the facilities for the future. Furthermore, various dynamic virtual reality simulations were created for the developer with the software Unity for failure scenarios for the runway lighting systems during take-off and landing situations in order to check visibility of the runway from the cockpit in emergencies, e.g. heavy fog.
