Engineering and Architectural Application of Virtual and Augmented Reality

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are visualization tools which can be used by engineers and architects to 1) increase the effectiveness of communicating plans and designs, 2) evaluate the details of designs prior to implementation, 3) support manufacturing and construction processes and 4) increase the effectiveness of implementer and user training. VR and AR technologies are related but are quite different in implementation and application. In this course the VR and AR visualization hardware and supporting software are presented with demonstrations. Examples of applications in engineering design, architectural design, design communication, and manufacturing and construction are described.
