Building Sensory Information in Augmented Reality: A Conceptual Framework

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The Augmented Reality (AR) technology is rapidly evolving and presents a new innovative approach to overlay and visualise digital information in real physical environments. In construction, the use of AR technology is currently limited to the visualisation of static building information. This paper analyses the AR market trends and the current innovations in AR technologies and explores the possibility of visualising the dynamic building information through the integration of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and Building Information Modelling (BIM). A conceptual framework for integrating BIM and sensory information for visualisation in head-mounted devices has been demonstrated. The availability of sensory information allows the user to visualise the new dimension in AR. Such a paradigm may lead to a new AR app that can expand the use of AR for sustainable and energy-efficient decision-making.
