Objectives of the project
E-Europe is the main strategic vision of European economic development.
Achieving the new virtual economy, however, requires better adaptation
between information technology and the existing physical infrastructures.
Especially new, unique and unforeseen requirements from the growing
electronic commerce emerge for residential buildings. HOMEDOOR Project will
research, conceptualize, build a prototype and a pilot of a transportation,
storage and automatic handling system for electronically ordered consumer
goods in buildings. The Project makes a study in design and
construction for an enabling system. The results of the project find
applications in civil and structural engineering, facilities design and
infrastructure. The project also studies the usability and the related
operational cost structures.
Technological and Innovative Aspects
|The main technological innovation is related to the better
accessibility of buildings which enables unmanned reception of
electronically ordered goods, such as grocery products, food and other
consumer goods. |
|The second technological and developmental innovation is a solution to
solve the logistic routing between road transport, distribution, storaging
and reception of electronically ordered goods.|
| The key of this Project is in integrating existing and new
buildings to the global e-commerce network by providing the logistic
solution for multi-storey and other buildings. It is expected to give
growth impulses to traditional building sectors via building
rehabilitation and modernization|
