xR Coming to Jobsite Near You… Very Soon!
Join us for a guided tour of how Black & Veatch is exploring the impact that “xR jobsites” will have on the future of design and construction. What’s a “xR jobsite, you ask? It is a virtual version of the actual jobsite. This virtual version can take many forms ranging from 3D meshes to spherical photography. It can even be captured on devices as simple as a cell phone with onboard 3D sensor.
The idea is to create and use xR job sites for planning, safety & historical purposes because it eliminates assumptions and risk by capturing and portraying the actual jobsite conditions, not just modeled conditions. Additionally… and most fun of all… you can immerse yourself in a xR jobsite using 1st person virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR).
Together we will explore real examples, proofs of concepts and ideas from infrastructure projects and internal development. It won’t be a total space odyssey, some of the ideas we will explore together are being implemented today…with ease!
