Emerging AR and VR: Smart Builders' Solution Set

By Construction Tech Review | Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Emerging technologies AR, VR, and Wearable devices found innovative solutions to create a more connected job site, enable digital partnerships, and increase productivity, timeliness, efficiency, and security. 

FREMONT, CA: Construction industry incorporates evolving technologies such as wearables, AR and VR to promote a smart environment. However, businesses need to be conscious of their business-specific techniques. For instance, communication and information collection skills in the construction sector have been improved with the assistance of wearable technologies. Insights about the techniques that have already been used elsewhere can also be a significant boost for business.

In construction, wearable technology varies from devices for health surveillance to Google Glass. Wearable technology has the benefits of being able to provide real-time information about a person or project and eliminating the need to carry and point a mobile phone to access AR/VR energy. In construction-specific apps, this technology has a vast scope, but it also can eliminate the need for mice, keyboards, and even touch screens. While VR systems have been accessible for several years, content development has seen remarkable growth lately, providing fresh possibilities specifically for the construction industry in vertical sectors.

The VR market is anticipated to expand 33.47 percent between 2018 and 2024, according to Research and Markets, with more fully immersive technology that allows consumers to feel the virtual environment realistically. This completely immersive environment offers head-mounted displays or virtual reality goggles. While VR systems have been accessible for several years, there has been substantial growth in content development lately, providing new possibilities in vertical sectors.

The purpose of AR, 3D laser scanning and printing, wearable, mobile, and drone technology is to collect and communicate project data more effectively. The limiting factors for the implementation of new technology are mainly related to budget, but as technology prices decrease and productivity yields rise and become more apparent, an increasing number of building experts will integrate the technology into their construction process. With the massive potential of construction techniques, however, it is up to the businesses to define how they can be leveraged.
