Image processing and virtual reality for remote building inspection

People Involved

Project Description

This project will develop a 3D immersive technology for a building to assist in the safe operation and management by limiting the need for building inspectors to be physically present. In Scotland, 9876 building inspections were carried out in the construction sector alone. The application of VRtechnologies will also enable essential local authority inspections to be carried out at a safe distance under COVID-19 social distancing rules.
