Project Details


There is a major trend in the construction industry to support the customer with more and better information through mobile devices and services such as mobile GIS and BIM. A future key element will be how the user is able to get to this information where it is needed. Sources for such information are both BIM systems and building plans, but also detection devices for hidden structures. Finding a way to visualize the data so that even non-experts can use this information will open the market to a whole new dimension. AUGUR will make the Invisible (Detected) and the Imaginary (Augmented data) visible.Specific tasks at construction sites, such as drilling holes and cutting into concrete walls, are time consuming due to failed drillings. By visualising information on the spot, work processes can be performed without using trial and error procedures, thus saving labour time and material costs. Furthermore, expensive repairs of structures damaged through drilling and accidents from disastrous destruction can be avoided. Therefore, augmented reality visualizations will help the customer through easier understanding, problem solving, great time and money savings as well as increased safety on the jobsite.
