When the Hololens came out, VIATechnik was asked to create an application that provided a successful use case of the hololens in the AEC industry. Our VIATechnik punchlist demonstrates the ability of linking data to real world elements. The punchlist app utilizes the Hololens and Cortana to create an interactive augmented reality application for construction.
Through our research and development lab, VIATechnik created on of the earliest construction applications on the hololens. Understanding that mixing digital information in the real world would benefit construction teams, we set out to create an augmented reality punchlist. Our punchlist tool allows users to connect digital information to the physical environment. Project team members can walk the site with the hololens and check on the punchlist status through the headset and voice commands using the Cortana speech interface.
