Augmented Reality and Construction: an Overview
“Technology is giving us the opportunity to do all of the construction inside in the office… with a computer helping us not do the wrong thing.”
– Fredrik Bergstrom, Gothenburg, Sweden
A couple weeks ago, we introduced you to Pat L’Heureux, a project engineer with Severino Trucking in New Hampshire, USA. Pat gave us a deep dive into his job, explaining how he uses SiteVision to alleviate many of the obstacles he faces every day. But beyond listing his own pain points, Pat’s description also hinted at augmented reality’s applicability in construction industry use cases far beyond his own. So today, we’ll discuss how SiteVision can solve problems and alleviate stress in a wide range of construction planning and execution tasks—from initial planning to the teams in the field to wrapping the job and moving on.
