Leveraging Augmented Reality for Highway ConstructionAbstract:
This document is a technical summary of the Federal Highway Administration report, Leveraging Augmented Reality for Highway Construction, which documents current AR technologies and applications focused on the state of the practice in highway design, construction, and inspection. The study included a literature review (with a desk scan to document AR use in construction) and interviews with researchers and vendors. Two workshops that involved technology and application developers, State departments of transportation, contractors, consultants, and other practitioners were also held. The final task of the FHWA study involved the development of five use-case examples of potential highway construction activities that could be enhanced using AR. These use-cases were based on workshop outcomes that were then refined using research results from chapter 4, which focused on AR state of the practice. Each use-case was outlined in a narrative format with a description of the AR technology and workflow that would be used.
