Reality Capture: Helping to Increase Safety and Productivity in Civil Construction

    Of all the new technology available to improve construction projects, reality capture perhaps holds the greatest promise. It covers a broad span of technology, from sophisticated laser scanning devices to the cameras on phones and the apps designed to better utilize the images they capture. New research conducted in the Civil Quarterly reveals the degree to which contractors have already embraced these technologies, the benefits they experience from their use and the promise they see in it for future improvements.

    Join Dr. Donna Laquidara-Carr, Industry Insights Research Director from Dodge Construction Network, and Troy Dahlin, VP, Heavy Construction, Leica Geosystems, for a discussion as they explore the findings of the study, discuss the most productive ways civil contractors are using this technology now, and forecast the most promising developments for the future.
