BAM has carried out the first test of the Microsoft HoloLens at PingProperties’ Trappenburch sustainable redevelopment site in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
BAM had previously tested Google Glass on a construction site, but the HoloLens takes this technology a step further enabling users to see holograms within the existing environment and providing them with the right information at the right time.
While we don’t expect to see HoloLensess on every site tomorrow, we recognise the importance of testing them now, to explore their future possibilities and understand how wearables and increased automation will affect workers on site.
