‘The Atom’, specifically designed for construction, is said to position 3D models to millimetre accuracy within construction tolerances
London-based XYZ Reality has launched ‘The Atom’, an Augmented Reality (AR) headset specifically designed for construction.
The Atom combines a safety-certified hardhat, AR displays and the in-built, computing power of HoloSite, XYZ Reality’s ‘engineering-grade’ AR system.
The headset is said to offer millimetre precision for accurately positioning 3D models of holograms on site.
It is designed to be used throughout the construction process: for pre-installation, to inspect the model on site and identify clashes in advance; during installation, to verify works during setting out and installation; for real-time validation, to view and analyse the latest design changes in context; and for post installation, to validate, assess and sign-off on works in real time.
According to the developers, the ‘engineering-grade’ tool makes the entire construction journey safer, smarter and more efficient, reducing waste, de-risking processes and delivering bottom line benefits for contractor and asset owner alike.
