From Point Cloud Survey to AR: The Transformation

Augmented Reality is fast becoming an appealing addition to the digital construction toolbox. Adding digital elements to a live view, the user can experience the digital environment in real time, as opposed to the shut out physical world VR offers. This live demonstration will present the transformation from a point cloud survey through to augmented reality. Using the Leica BLK360 Laser Scanner, a scan is taken. Producing a high accuracy image, the portable and easy to use dome then transfers the scan to ReCap Pro, a software package, accessible from both a desktop or iPad. A compatible file format is created with an augmented reality app creation software. Discussing the developments of AR within GRAHAM Construction, the audience will be shown the converted laser scan as it is uploaded to software tools such as Unity alongside the associated model target that the AR camera will recognise. Linking the model and model target, the pair are exported into app development software, where once tested and reviewed, the AR ready model can be deployed. With the transformation complete, users can visualise their finished project integrated with their live environment.
