Trimble has introduced a new mixed-reality solution to help accelerate layout on the construction site.
The new FieldLink MR app, built on the Trimble Connect collaboration platform, runs on the Trimble XR10 with HoloLens 2, a hardhat-integrated mixed-reality device.
The new app allows field crews to easily visualise construction data without relying on a handheld controller for step-by-step navigation to locate each point.
According to Trimble, as attracting and retaining skilled workers remains a key challenge for many contractors, reducing the complexity of layout in the field will be essential to enable less experienced staff to deliver quality work the first time.
Martin Holmgren, general manager for Trimble’s Building Construction Field Solutions Division, said: “Trimble’s FieldLink solution enables users to precisely position digital construction information in the physical world.
“FieldLink MR is an extension of this application, which seamlessly integrates cutting edge mixed-reality technology to help construction professionals be more effective on site. This integration offers more efficient and intuitive workflows by making the layout process more natural and contextual.”
Trimble FieldLink MR is expected to be available in the first half of 2022.
