The provider of augmented reality (AR) solutions for real-time collaboration and visualization, Arvizio, announced the ability to incorporate drone and UAV mapped 3D models and point clouds into multi-user, multi-location AR collaborative sessions through its Immerse 3D solution.
The company said that the new solution would allow its customers to visualize and interact with 3D aerial photogrammetry and/or LiDAR scans in engineering projects in several fields, including construction, precision agriculture, infrastructure, mining, utilities, and energy.
Drone 3D mapping for project planning, progress tracking, and assessing short and long-term changes is becoming increasingly common amongst many enterprises and public works. However, the challenge lies in processing these datasets produced by photogrammetry or LiDAR on AR headsets, iPad or Android tablets, and iPhone and Android mobile devices.
Arvizio’s Immerse 3D platform offers a solution to this predicament through wide-area network streaming and dynamic level of detail processing for these massive datasets.
The company’s customers would now be able to leverage the GPU power of a PC, server, or cloud-based virtual machine to stream industrial-scale 3D models and point clouds. Moreover, they can do this over a vast area network, enabling multiple users to collaborate and work with the content. Furthermore, the company believes that the expanding installation of 5G networks will further enhance the system’s low latency streaming capabilities.
“Drone reality capture offers reliable, high-resolution 3D imagery of vast areas and inaccessible locations, and the value of that collected data is growing,” said Jonathan Reeves, CEO at Arvizio. “We are providing our customers the ability to use their drone captures as a digital twin in synchronized AR visualization sessions for impactful, accurate project planning, monitoring and reviews. In addition, the rollout of 5G networks will enhance the visualization experience with our ability to offer low latency streaming over the WAN capabilities.”
