The digital transformation has significantly affected many industries. Recently, it has gained momentum in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) sector in general and tunneling in particular. To support these developments, TransIT represents an inter-university and interdisciplinary research initiative with the goal of advancing digitalization in tunneling. This article discusses the challenges connected with the digital transformation of the tunneling sector. We examine this topic with different use cases demonstrating solutions to those challenges.
