A Framework for Cloud-Based Virtual and Augmented Reality Using Real-Time Information for Construction Progress Monitoring

Abstract: Researchers are developing techniques to use augmented reality for construction progress monitoring, but these are not widely diffused. A barrier to wider use is that BIM software is often not updated in real-time between the construction office and the construction site. This paper proposes an integrated cloud-based framework to enable construction progress monitoring by creating an automated real-time bidirectional flow of information between the construction site and planning office. This seeks to take advantage of the new opportunities arising because of the consumer VR/AR devices that have come to market in the last year, and the potential for engineers and site personnel to take ownership of these low-cost devices and use them in their role. It contributes to the trajectory of research on virtual and augmented reality in construction by articulating a novel approach to construction progress monitoring through passive data acquisition, cloud-based processing and use of consumer VR/AR devices. The paper concludes by articulating next steps to develop prototypes and work with industry partners to enable them to engage in innovation.
