Panel: How are DOT’s Using 3D Tools to Solve Infrastructure and Transportation Challenges
July 21, 2020 | 2-3pm ET
DOTs need to access the steep and potentially dangerous terrain in order to adequately map features and gather data to support design calculations, but they also need to proceed in a safe manner. Oftentimes, geo-professionals responding to slope failures do not have sufficient time or resources to charter aircraft or other specialty aerial mapping services to obtain the best design data. Inadequate reconnaissance information hinders planning for safe site access. A readily deployable, small, and cost-effective tool is needed in these instances.Join this discussion of latest precision measurement tools and platforms in use by leading DOTs, how they are being integrated for better project management and analytics.
Laser Scanning and 3D Building Information Modeling for Construction and Facilities Management Projects
August 11, 2020 | 1-2 PM ET
This discussion will highlight how lidar data and imagery were used to create an accurate building information model that is currently being used for airport design, construction, and integration into their facilities management program. Visualization capabilities and survey-grade accuracies are some of the highlights of the developed building model and the presenters will explore how their solutions and workflows utilize these efficiencies to create real differences.

The Digital Twin in Action
September 22, 2020 | 2-3pm ET
The idea of a “digital twin” – a living, constantly updated and analytical representation of an asset, building or system – has been gaining momentum. As IoT sensor technologies improve, cloud computing becomes more robust, and companies realize the power of applying machine learning and AI, the future of the digital twin seems bright. Learn how a variety of structures from automotive manufacturing facilities, to oil & gas refineries, to a pro football stadium are using digital twins to create real efficiencies. The discussion will identify the tools used, challenges, value and what’s ahead.
Where 3D Tech Provides Extreme ROI
October 8, 2020 | 2-3pm ET
Anyone working with 3D-imaging technology has figured out that customers see the most value in the identification of existing conditions. This is also known as providing “as-built services,” where you use 3D-capture technology to identify the topographic, structural, architectural, and/or MEP conditions. A panel of experts will discuss what it means to measure the value of such endeavors in more ways than one.

Exploring Innovative Solutions in AEC: AR, VR, MR, gaming applications and beyond
December 9, 2020 | 2-3pm ET
Design and construction validation using full size immersion allows the first way to actually get a sense of a project and test systems without having a full-size mock-up built IRL. Yes, money can be saved at great value but some more important benefits are also had in employing a Virtual Practice; Better Work. The use of AR/VR for complex design projects can expose and reduce potential design flaws as well as convey difficult to comprehend design concepts to stakeholders.
