Reality Capture Project Final Report Released

Aalto University has released the final report of its Reality Capture (RECAP) project. The purpose of the research project was to investigate opportunities for automatic monitoring of progress, automatic quality checking of construction, and visualization of progress utilizing Augmented Reality technologies.

The project started from the observation that laser scanning and photogrammetry related technology has matured but their applications in construction have been limited to very few use cases, such as manual comparison of as-built point clouds to the design 3D model to evaluate quality and progress.
