AR guidance systems for building construction

Shadow plays, wavelike patterns or acoustic effects: bricks can be placed at special angles to create aesthetic architectural designs. To create the required effects and at the same time ensure a stable structure, the individual bricks need to be positioned with millimetre accuracy. combines computer vision and digital building models with augmented reality to develop intelligent measurement systems that construction workers can use to precisely place bricks. Their technology generates intuitive visual cues to guide construction, removing the need for 2d blueprints and manual measurement tools. Construction is also continuously monitored to improve build quality and avoid costly mistakes.
