AKULAR - Augmented reality platform for the visualisation of 3D models in real estate by Cviker

 

The cloud platform AKULAR aims to connect the advantages of communicating 3D construction models with the technology for their effective conversion and visualisation. AKULAR is responding to low rates of digitalisation and ineffective processes in construction, enabling the rapid visualisation of all types of 3D models in augmented reality (AR). On standard mobile devices, the platform is able to visualise 3D models of buildings and infrastructure in real size and directly in the context of its surroundings before actual construction has begun. As a result, the technology streamlines decision-making, planning and construction processes. For a wide range of stakeholders including architects, project managers, developers and clients, as well as the public, AKULAR provides visualisations of multiple project alternatives, thus reducing the need for costly physical mock-ups and can save project costs in the hundreds of thousands of euros.
