Technology demonstration

Augmented reality (AR) is recognized as a powerful tool for the digital transformation of the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) sector. AMC Bridge continuously explores state-of-the-art approaches to enhance user experience during the AEC Design process. As a result of such efforts, we are happy to present AR Weather Simulator for AEC, a new AR-based technology demonstration intended to illustrate how AEC designs can be impacted by real-world weather conditions.

Developed for the iPhone® and iPad Pro® digital mobile devices, the technology demonstration is based on the algorithm of combining building design data and desired weather simulations to further superimpose them on a real landscape using the AR technology. AR Weather Simulator for AEC allows recognizing the real-world geometry of the surrounding object, placing a 3D model into the AR scene, simulating different weather effects, such as snow, rain, fog, and flood, and viewing their impact on the uploaded model and the AR scene itself.

To obtain accurate results that can help implement the necessary improvements on the spot, the technology demonstration also shows how to modify parameters and take photos of weather simulations to share or watch them later.

To see the AR Weather Simulator for AEC technology demonstration in action, watch a short demo video.

If you are interested in learning more about the demonstrated technologies and how they can be utilized for your organization’s needs, please contact us to discuss the details.

    With an array of exceptional CAD services the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry offers nowadays, it is essential to continuously upgrade your product not to miss valuable business opportunities, which may be lost even because of the absence of relevant CAD file support in a system. Constantly researching modern technologies and acquiring greater experience through their practical application, AMC Bridge took on a challenge to equip the client with a brand-new plug-in for Autodesk® Navisworks® model review software and an enhanced plug-in for Autodesk® Revit® building information modeling software.
  • Cesium Opens More Doors for Unreal Into AEC

    The arrival of the Cesium for Unreal plug-in is fairly recent. It was announced last March and became officially available in April 2021, but the ability to work with large geospatial models in the Unreal game engine is a snowball rolling downhill. The alliance between Cesium and Unreal means that the Unreal Engine supports the open format 3D Tiles pioneered by Cesium, which opens up new possibilities for companies bringing their data into Unreal to create compelling visualizations.
