Perceptions of Augmented Reality in the Design Sector

Abstract: Nowadays the architectural design industry takes account of collaboration among design team members as seriously as geometric and spatial features of the design itself. Effective collaboration should appreciate the difference in perceptions between architectural design practitioners. Productivity in design heavily depends on how effectively design ideas can be communicated to other design team members. Augmented Reality (AR) technology, which can insert digital information into the designers’ physical working environment, is envisaged to be a promising solution to the collaboration problem faced by architectural design practitioners. This paper presents the findings from an empirical pilot study into the perceptions of using Augmented Reality technology for architectural design activity. The interviewees for this study were invited from a well-recognized Australian architecture company. The paper also presents the findings with a comprehensive discussion of the application of Augmented Reality technology in the design sector to achieve higher design efficiency and design collaboration.

Defining the matrix of communication processes in the AEC/FM industry: current developments and gap analysis

Abstract: A formal approach for the analysis of AEC/FM related processes has been undertaken in the frames of the EU ICCI cluster project (IST-2001-33022). The approach is based on a modified application of the Generic Process Protocol (GPP) proposed in a research project funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, coupled with a dedicated usage of the UML technique. GPP is applied on high-level, for the definition of a multi-dimensional matrix capturing the classification of roles, activities and communication, together with their interrelationships, whereas UML diagramming is used for detailed representation of sub-processes. The original GPP matrix is modified in accordance with two objectives: (1) to prepare the matrix in a suitable form for database management as well as Web-based presentation and processing, and (2) to improve the capabilities for information capture so that various analyses can be easily performed and reported. In this paper, first the suggested modelling approach is outlined, and then already available results of an ongoing study of current developments are presented and discussed. The reported study synthesises the performed examination of the ICCI member projects OSMOS, ISTforCE, eConstruct, DIVERCITY, eLEGAL and GLOBEMAN and of several other large efforts and literature sources. At the end, future directions for work are extrapolated and some general conclusions regarding further development efforts are drawn.

Analysis and knowledge discovery from sensors data to improve energy efficiency

Abstract: Increases in energy prices and the global goal of mitigating CO2 emissions necessitate the development of intelligent Building Management Systems (BMS) that operate on an energy-efficient basis. Data Centers, buildings and/or group of buildings are often responsible for huge energy consumption. One way to monitor and optimize energy consumption is to instrument buildings using sensors (temperature, pressure, humidity …) in order to track and solve wrong usage of energy management systems. The majority of the BMS are processing the data dynamically without taking into account the data history due to their constraint problems (time, bandwidth and calculation capability) and data resources. The RIDER project brings together a consortium of research laboratories and enterprises including IBM, to share their expertise in research and development of smart Information Technology (IT) energy platforms. In this context, we aim to improve energy efficiency of buildings or group of building (including data centers) using IT. One of the objectives is to identify valid, potentially useful, and ultimately understandable patterns in data for improving energy efficiency. We propose in this paper an approach of using an integrated platform able to interconnect instrumented buildings and sites, and to provide a high-level point of view for increasing our knowledge from sensors. The expected results are to estimate physical parameters that influence energy consumption based on data set history. Different correlation could be found between different variables, for example, indoor air quality and energy consumption. These results could be applied at a location where no sensor is placed and predict energy consumption from different variables.
