The introduction of new information technologies does not bypass such an industry as construction. The emergence of augmented reality (AR) technology in architecture, planning and design in construction was no exception. The use of augmented reality technologies helps to visualize various processes (including technologically complex ones), show the expected end result, plan structural changes, and make these changes at the planning and design stage.
The perspective of the opportunity is to see the designed object in 3D with the eyes already at its intended construction site in all details and details, walk through the virtual layout and evaluate all the design features of the future object as close to reality as possible. An even more tempting idea sounds, the ability to complete the construction of any elements directly on the construction site, where it is planned to carry out design work.
For participants in the process, augmented reality provides the opportunity to present the appearance and structure of the construction site, obtain up-to-date operational information on the progress of construction with fixation and quality control of the work performed, track changes in the proposed model of the future facility and promptly intervene in the construction process to adjust, for example, construction time . Such a representation will save a lot of time when performing technologically and technically complex construction processes, works and operations (for example, geodetic support for construction work, laying engineering communications, etc.).
Most common use cases:
- Survey works (survey)
- Remote Assistance
- Technical control and architectural supervision – comparison of a 3D model and a real object
- Performing construction at the construction site
- The ability to make improvements to existing systems
