The Augmented Technology used for Pokemon Go is driving the mobile game lovers crazy. Augmented reality, the technology behind the widely popular phone app Pokémon Go, can be used to highlight landmines or relay information from a drone flying above about enemies hiding behind a wall to soldiers on the battlefield.
How AR related to BIM ?
Communication of design intent is enabled with Augmented Reality for Architects and designers which is a major challenge earlier.The strength of using augmented reality is delivering and understanding the vision of the project. Through Augmented reality BIM has taken virtual model to the reality.
Augmented reality is a live, copied view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input. Virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one, whereas augmented reality takes the real world and adds to it with—in the case of architecture—a 3D model of your design.
With the help of advanced augmented-reality technology such as computer vision and object recognition, the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and able to be digitally manipulated. In augmented reality, computer software must derive real-world coordinates, independent from the camera or from camera images.
Augmented reality is used in architecture and construction by placing a 3D model of a proposed design onto an existing space using mobile devices and 3D models. AR has been used in the video gaming and media entertainment for a much longer period of time to show a real image interacting with one created from computer graphics.
‘Pokemon Go’ is an entertainment augmented reality game. But BIM augmented reality will give you the professional look and feel of virtual world.
