World’s First INTOWALL Radar Technology: A Major Step Towards Innovative Building Inspection!  
 
 

After two years of dedicated research and development under the leadership of ETRO-VUB, a breakthrough has been achieved within the INTOWALL project: a revolutionary radar technology for building inspection was developed, called the transient radar method (TRM). The initiative aimed to reduce the CO2 emissions of buildings and increase their energy efficiency.

The new technology enables the measurement of the density of glass wool in cavity walls with unprecedented precision, without the need for invasive methods. “This advancement not only promises to improve the accuracy of insulation assessments but also contributes to the ambition to achieve a CO2-neutral status by 2050,” says Professor Johan Stiens of ETRO.

Looking towards the future, the project team is focused on further refining the technology to map a wide range of insulation materials and building elements. This prospect of expansion and application on a larger scale highlights the endless possibilities. As part of the FTI Brussels Festival, the milestone of the INTOWALL project will be celebrated. A unique demonstration was held on March 18, 2024.

Additionally, the project team invites potential partners to contribute to and participate in this groundbreaking endeavour. Through collaboration, we can transform the construction sector into a more sustainable and efficient future.
