IDD Tech’s new app, ToBe Maps, uses augmented reality technology to take design to the field.
The ability to easily view designs in context, on mobile phones and tablets, improves decision making and supports safer and more efficient delivery.
Using GPS location or image scanning, the app tracks the user’s movements and measures depths to build a three-dimensional view of the design on site.
The app gives delivery teams the ability to visualise all design disciplines, both above and below ground, and identify utilities. This improves the planning of work, with benefits for space proofing and clash detection, logistics, and safety.
IDD Tech Product Lead – Immersive Tech (XR) Jovan Harrod said: “AR is a proven medium for reducing cognitive load when viewing 3D information and is a superior communication medium when compared to paper and tablet-based model viewing while on-site.”
“AR can be used in any sector and throughout the life-cycle of a project for efficient communication of any 3D spatial information in a real-world context. “
The ToBe Maps app is being used by a range of IDD Tech clients including CIMIC Group’s CPB Contractors on major projects across Australia. The app has proven itself to be a tool that de-risks delivery by enabling immersive planning, more timely decisions and safer outcomes.
