The construction industry in the US is currently nearly $1.3 trillion, as it makes buildings worth this much. The industry also employs more than 7 million workers that help build the skyscrapers in the US, and about 7% of the world’s population worldwide. With the technological advancements in the current era where everything is being driven with technology, the construction industry should also employ its ability.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality have made it easier for companies to simulate a lot of environment for its trainees. The most prominent use of these technologies can be seen in the airline department, where they simulate different airplane flying experiences for the pilots so that they can handle real-life experiences with expertise.
The construction industry can also employ its use as there can be many improvements and risk analysis that can be made beforehand. These technologies can also reduce the costs substantially, improve communications, and identify the problems in advance.
According to researchers and analysts, if AR and VR technologies are used in the construction industry the right way, the productivity can be boosted exponentially – adding an estimated $1.6 trillion value to the industry, according to researchers and analysts.
Take a look at the infographic for further information on how VR and AR can help boost productivity in the construction industry.
