Norway:- Imerso establishes a platform which in collaboration of both 3D capture and BIM principle serves as a tool of intelligent performance monitoring of construction projects. Valente further explains that Imerso is now working on a larger picture for construction projects as it targets to make 3D captures as well as the processing of that 3D data into actionable information which will be quite useful for them.
Working on Imerso is simple as Users start by loading the software with all the data from the planning stage, which includes BIM, geometry, schedules as well as tolerance parameters and then these data are used as monitoring targets. When, site works continues, users upload 3D data on field. The next step perform by Imerso is to register that 3D data directly to the 3D building information model and displays the result, through this it is easy for the users to compare the current on-site conditions against the original design intent.
Imerso is also helpful in comparing 3D model against the BIM automatically to offer quick insight. In the words of Frederico Valente, CEO and founder of Imerso, “The 3D picture enables us to do a volumetric comparison between the 3D data and the design models. We have all the semantic data we extract from the BIM models—who’s responsible, which contractors the work belongs to, the date a building element should be there—and we produce a report for the relevant project team.”
Imerso does not stop here only, it sets itself apart from its competitors by offering a mobile app for 3D capture, which brings advantage not only in usability but also in speed and price. Imerso is trying to replace tool which was used to capture project sites from smartphones scanning which is a far better way to compute and analyse data.
Imerso is trying to bring revolution in this field by removing all the complexities in 3D technology. “We want to make it as simple as saying, ‘Forget all you think you know. Look at this device, press a button, the laser does its beauty, and the data comes to us. You’ve just done your first scan, and you have relevant data. There’s no more to it than this.’ ” says Valente.
