Trimble's New High-Accuracy Handheld Augmented Reality System Takes Data Visualization Outdoors
The system consists of:
- Hardware: The Trimble SiteVision Integrated Positioning System integrates the Trimble Catalyst DA1 Antenna, Electronic Distance Measurement (EDM) rangefinder and power management into a lightweight, handheld device that connects to a user-supplied Android™ mobile phone.
- Software Subscription: Available to single users on a monthly or yearly basis. The SiteVision software subscription combines Trimble's high-accuracy positioning services and cloud-based processing technology to create a centimeter-accurate AR system. The system leverages Trimble cloud-based processing to manage and deliver data and design models.
SiteVision enables users to visualize digital models from a wide range of data collection, design and constructible modeling tools in open industry-standard formats including IFC and LandXML. For civil projects, SiteVision accurately visualizes data from Trimble's Quantm, Business Center and Novapoint; design data from Civil 3D® and Bentley® OpenRoads; and GIS data from Esri® ArcGIS® software. SiteVision powers
Using Trimble Connect™ cloud-based hosting, SiteVision can access models from all stages of the lifecycle of infrastructure and buildings—from initial concepts of roads or buildings through the operations and maintenance phase of the assets—to increase collaboration, enhance work accuracy and ultimately improve operations and utilization.
SiteVision simplifies complex concepts by allowing users to blend digital content with real-world environments. For example, city planners can visualize a new building design in the exact spot it is to be erected, a work crew could identify the exact position of underground cables or pipes before digging, an electric utility can confirm placement of poles and lines with customers and crews, or a construction supervisor could assess the progress of heavy equipment by visualizing actual work performed against the site plan.
"It's easier to understand complex ideas when we can see them in a real-world context," said
Trimble SiteVision is available to order now through Trimble's authorized distribution channels for Civil Engineering and Construction,
