The World’s First Browser-based and Automated High-end Virtual Reality Content Management System

Project description

Building a VR system for the construction sector

Miscommunication between stakeholders, long decision-making processes, misinterpretations of construction elements and insufficient collapse detection. These are several reasons construction projects are subject to budget overruns and time delays, resulting in hundreds of billions of euros’ worth of losses. The EU-funded HEGIAS project aims to reverse this inefficient trend. It will develop the world’s first browser-based and automated Virtual Reality Content Management System called HEGIAS VR. This new system has already been successfully tested in 10 real-life projects. The outcomes showed significant improvement of workflow optimisation and decision-making processes, as well as a 45 % cost reduction.
