Engineering to feature in conference on application of virtual reality technology
27 April 2016
Building on the success of the past two years, the third ARVR Innovate Conference and EXPO will take place at Dublin’s Croke Park Conference Centre on Thursday, April 28.
According to a recent Digi Capital report, latest market predictions for the use of augmented and virtual reality indicate a growth in expected sales from current levels of less than €8.8 billion this year to €133 billion over the next five years, as the industry gears up for mainstream adoption.
Among the sectors expected to benefit most from augmented reality (AR) applications in particular is construction and engineering. Augmented reality offers the promise to improve building information modeling (BIM) by superimposing virtual models on a live view of the world. Using a smartphone or tablet with AR software, the user can view the 3D model in the real environment in real time from multiple perspectives.
Augmented and virtual reality technology applications for the industrial and engineering communities will feature at this year’s event. A dedicated spotlight on these sectors will hear from a number of prominent speakers from companies such as headline partner DAQRI, who have global leadership in the use of augmented reality in industrial contexts.
The company’s Smart Helmet is one example of how they promise to change the world of work in the near future. Also included among the high profile speakers is James Dearsley, founder of The Digital Marketing Bureau, who will speak on the topic: “Construction and Real Estate 20120: where is it all heading?” James’ particular speciality lies within the construction, property and real estate industry.
