REALWEAR AND AUTODESK TAKE NEW WAYS WITH ASSISTED REALITY CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOLUTION
Autodesk Construction Cloud for RealWear’s hands-free HMT-1 device improves worker productivity and safety for remote construction project management
RealWear, the global leader in assisted reality solutions for frontline industrial workers, announced today that Autodesk and RealWear have successfully partnered to bring the Autodesk Construction Cloud® into RealWear’s flagship HMT-1, the hands-free HMT-1 device integrate with assisted reality. Global construction company Permasteelisa is adopting the solution for its teams.
“Using BIM 360 on a RealWear device will be a game changer and keep us on the cutting edge of technology and innovation,” said Gordon Earle, Group Operations Executive, Permasteelisa Group. “We are excited to provide the equipment to empower and retain our best employees by providing them with a complete solution that makes them safer and more productive, provided by two of the leading technology companies in the field.”
The Permasteelisa Group, owned by Atlas Holdings, is a global leader in the engineering, project management, manufacturing, installation and service of architectural envelopes. Among the accomplishments of the Permasteelisa Group, some of the most prestigious contemporary architectural works in the world have been directed by the company, including the Sydney Opera House, Eight Spruce in Lower Manhattan, The Shard, the Guggenheim Museum and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA.
The RealWear HMT-1 device is the leading rugged, head-mounted, assisted reality wearable that gives construction workers real-time access to information and expertise while keeping their hands and field of vision free to work. RealWear devices are compatible with worker personal protective equipment (PPE) and feature the only hot-swappable battery in the category for the full shift.
The BIM 360 construction project management platform helps project teams stay on time and on budget by giving teams access to the latest version of all project information in a single app – anytime, anywhere. By connecting a RealWear-Assisted Reality device to BIM 360, teams can now more easily access the information they need, save time, reduce risk, and reduce rework and errors.
With the joint solution, construction teams can now access project documents, plans and models hands-free; They can run build quality, safety and project control workflows from their RealWear device running the new BIM 360 app for RealWear. Employees can access and control BIM 360 on the RealWear hands-free system with simple voice commands, while maintaining full situational awareness and having their hands free for work. Traditional document or tablet-based workflow management solutions require employees to either hold a clipboard or sometimes take off their PPE gloves to operate a tablet’s touchscreen. Construction teams can clip a RealWear device to their hard hats and display a microdisplay that looks like a 7-inch tablet without obstructing their view. You can use voice commands to take HD photos with the RealWear’s innovative front camera.
“Connecting people to their jobs and each other is critical in today’s digital economy. We are excited to be working with Autodesk to improve employee productivity and safety with assisted reality, ”said Rama Oruganti, Chief Product Officer, RealWear. “This integration will accelerate the digital transformation of the hardware store and provide the frontline staff with a user-centered wearable with assisted reality, which they can use to reach their full potential while protecting their safety.”
“It’s no secret that building is labor intensive,” said James Cook, Head of Integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions. “The integration of BIM 360 and RealWear offers a simple construction site simplification that allows construction teams to focus on the task at hand so they can work smarter and safer.”
