VIRTUAL REALITY & AUGMENTED REALITY
Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality as innovative and efficient tools to manage the design, construction and maintenance of the facility and employees training.
BIM, Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality
Virtual Reality (VR) & Augmented Reality (AR) are a new method to approach the construction phase of the project.
VR is an immersive experience and drops you into a virtual world. Users have access to information in a very effective and complete way, “moving” inside a virtual three-dimensional representation of the plant. They can “walk” around these environments using gaming controllers or hand controllers, or through head movement.
AR enhances reality, by adding virtual information to the real world. It enables users to access to static or dynamic content, simply looking at a real device, an equipment or a plant. Augmented Reality (AR) can enhance BIM by enabling users to view BIM model data hands-free in 3D.
By combining BIM, AR & VR, gives you a specific view of the whole phases of the project lifecycle.
This approach allows you to achieve better results in Space Management, Construction Management and Training, saving costs and time.
VR & AR ADVANTAGES
The advantages of bringing Augmented and Virtual Reality into BIM are many. BIM with VR and AR benefits the design, construction, inspections, operations and maintenance, and renovations phases of a construction project the maximum.
Operations and maintencance
Documentations being made directly available to users with AR improving performance accuracy, efficiency, and compliance.
Better collaboration and communication through easily sharable information.
Additional devices and areas can be added to the system, improving maintenance capabilities over time.
Problem detection and resolution
A new level of asset monitoring that detect if something is amiss, give a digitized view of what’s wrong and help complete repair & maintenance (R&M) issues successfully.
Reduced overall training effort because of visual support and use of interactive content.
Fast reaction to problems
Allows you to react in the fastest way to any real problem.
Building Information Modelling, is first of all a design strategy which aspires to be much more than a mere information exchange tool: it is rather a coordinated and holistic approach aimed to assist engineers, designers, developers, decision makers, contractors and owners.
A digital model derived from B.I.M. software allows, among other things, to integrate the necessary data to all the actors, keeping it up to date, facilitating in real time the changes of the building components and describing the project in a coherent way.
