Mixed Reality in the Construction Industry
The Trimble XR10 Brings Mixed Reality to Your Construction Site
The XR10 from Trimble is a customized hardhat with a built-in Microsoft HoloLens 2. The device brings mixed reality right to the front line, enabling workers in safety-controlled environments to access model data directly on site. Trimble developed this product directly with Microsoft to provide an OEM product so companies can rest assured their warranty will not be voided by DIY solutions. Avoid issues down the road by working with BuildingPoint Southeast. Our experts are ready to take care of you and your technology!
View future projections of work and compare coordinated models with work in place as construction is taking place for instantaneous feedback. See in real time where your job site is going and prevent major issues arising from work being incorrectly installed in the field. 3D content comes off the screen and into the real world with the XR10.
What Can You Do With the HoloLens 2?
With the Trimble XR10 and Trimble Connect for HoloLens workers can take advantage of the true value of their constructible 3D models and existing workflows in:
- SysQue, and more.
The device also sports a wider field-of-view, improved usability, and a unique, flip-up viewscreen. Microsoft’s work with Trimble on the Trimble XR10 brings a new way of working with AECO models throughout the building lifecycle, from design to operation. Do more than ever before on your jobsite.
How Can Your Team Use This Equipment?
The technology is enabling front-line workers to better access, understand, and act on the information that is being provided to them via their investment in BIM (i.e. “what you see is what you build”), without being experts on the model itself.
What’s the Difference Between Hololens 2 and the Hololens 1?
The first, most noticeable, difference is the field-of-view which has expanded both horizontally and vertically, resulting in a total FOV area that is more than 2X that of HoloLens 1. The device also supports eye-tracking, 10-finger hand tracking, and custom gestures to enable more natural interaction with holograms; touch, grab, scale, pick up, and more.
How Soon Can I Try This Out?
This technology will be coming to market later this year. In the meantime, you can talk to our team on how you can utilize the equipment. Let us show you the future value of bringing virtual reality to your jobsite.
