The convergence of virtual reality, prefabrication, manufacturing, building information modeling and construction came into better focus for Autodesk product users in mid November at the software vendor’s annual conference in Las Vegas.
While augmented reality has been touted as a tool to view 3D models and on-site construction together in context, the size of a 3D model limits its application, especially with headset viewers such as Microsoft HoloLens.
Suffolk Construction Co. held a "virtual" groundbreaking for its 38,000 sq-ft addition to its Boston headquarters on Thursday. During the ceremony, city officials and executives from Suffolk donned virtually reality headsets to view and animation of the groundbreaking as well as a virtual model rendering of the project being erected.
This webinar will explore the human elements of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and new devices on job sites, as well as how trainers and developers are incorporating critical human interactions in how technologies and devices are deployed and how well they are embraced on site.
Broadcasting LIVE from FutureTech 2018 | Our panelists’ firms are early adopters of the tools of virtual and augmented reality. For years, they have been devoting sustained resources of their own to establish a foundation for leveraging those tools on jobsites. We will get a report on where they are now, and where they are going with this technology tomorrow.
Construction groups are increasing using VR immersive technology to attract and train new talent. The next generation of the industry can drive virtual dozers, walk virtual sites and perform virtual tasks to earn credits while minimizing risk and cost. Attendees will find out how this technology is evolving, including the caveats, cautions and next iterations.
Discover your firm’s super power — the power to quickly create 3D experiences in real-time from your design files for VR/AR devices, using tools you probably already have, or can easily acquire. We'll talk to field supervisors putting VR and AR to work to enhance project understanding, and business strategists with their eyes on advanced visualizations that will impact their company’s future.
Workers’ compensation experience ratings are widely misused as a proxy for safety. This report explores how they can cost bidders contract wins, although some owners and contractors are waking up to the problem.
