It is difficult to gain access to a construction site for a whole class of university students. So why not bring the construction site to them using augmented reality (AR)! A great idea by the Faculty of Built Environment at the University of New South Wales.

This AR app was created to educate students into the construction process with a focus on building foundations. It provides a start to finish overview in 3D of the construction of building foundation piles and the processes involved. There is a showcase of the major equipment used and also an interactive exercise to replace damaged piles, learning about common causes of failure in the process.

It is intended to bring the construction site to the student and enable them access like never before to all phases of development, even those underground. This future form of engineering education allows the student to learn from the safety and convenience of their home or classroom environment.

We developed this AR experience for students to be able to download and explore at home, a more interactive alternative to a chapter in the textbook. It was very well received by students and enabled them to better understand the 3D concepts of building foundation pile construction. It was created to run on:

  • Apple iPhones
  • Android Phones
  • Apple iPads

It is available on the Apple App Store here: FBE Piling AR App iOS

It is available on the Google Play Store here: FBE Piling AR Android

Client:

The Faculty of Built Environment at The University of New South Wales Australia

Augmented reality (AR) is a great way to explain a complex process that requires a 3D understanding. We can take your designs or process and develop them into engaging 3D models that can be interacted with by the viewer. This visual form of communication helps to ensure that everyone is on the same page and brain power is used for remembering the information rather than the spatial layout.

It is also getting easier and easier to distribute this content as modern smartphones support AR apps like this, so everyone has an immersive learning device in their pocket, just waiting to be utilised!

If you have an idea for an AR app then please get in touch with our development team.
