Integration of Building Information Modelling and Augmented Reality for Building Energy Systems Visualisation

  title={Integration of Building Information Modelling and Augmented Reality for Building Energy Systems Visualisation},
  author={Vishak Dudhee and Vladimir Vukovic},
Buildings consist of numerous energy systems, including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and lighting systems. Typically, such systems are not fully visible in operational building environments, as some elements remain built into the walls, or hidden behind false ceilings. Fully visualising energy systems in buildings has the potential to improve understanding of the systems’ performance and enhance maintenance processes. For such purposes, this paper describes the…

Building information model visualisation in augmented reality
It can be concluded that model positioning can be inaccurate depending on the superimposing method used and the AR device, showing a need to integrate data from Internet of Things sensors into the current BIM-AR processes to allow visualisation of accurate and high-quality operational building information.


Integrating Augmented Reality with Building Information Modeling: Onsite construction process controlling for liquefied natural gas industry
Abstract The extent of effectiveness of real-time communication within BIM environment is somehow restrained due to the limited sense of immersion into virtual environments. The objective of this
EnergyViz: an interactive system for visualization of energy systems
This work introduces EnergyViz, a visualization system that provides an interface for exploring time-varying, multi-attribute and spatial properties of a particular energy system and integrates several visualization techniques to facilitate exploration of a specific energy system.
A review on modeling and simulation of building energy systems
Buildings consume about 40% of the overall energy consumption, worldwide and correspondingly are also responsible for carbon emissions. Since, last decade efforts have been made to reduce this share
This paper compares the time needed for the same tasks as well as advantages and disadvantages of both AutoCAD and 3ds Max, and recommends the most effective solution.
Evaluating the Microsoft HoloLens through an augmented reality assembly application
To assess the Microsoft HoloLens’ potential for delivering AR assembly instructions, the cross-platform Unity 3D game engine was used to build a proof of concept application and showed that while the HoloLens is a promising system, there are still areas that require improvement, such as tracking accuracy, before the device is ready for deployment in a factory assembly setting.
Does data visualization affect users’ understanding of electricity consumption?
ABSTRACT Different data visualizations are investigated for how they enable occupants to learn about domestic energy consumption. Smart metering can potentially encourage householders to change their
