Fiatech webinar on the power of augmented reality in the construction industry features Index AR Solutions presenters

Williamsburg, Va., May 24, 2016 — The power and potential of augmented reality (AR) in transforming the construction industry through improving efficiencies while boosting the bottom line will be presented by experts from Index AR Solutions in a Fiatech webinar on June 21.

The webinar, “Augmented Reality: Implement Now for Positive Performance Results,” will help educate and demystify what AR can and cannot do, how it is being implemented now with startling results and what’s required to implement AR in your company.

The webinar will highlight how early adopters of AR are gaining a competitive advantage over competitors in the industry. In addition, the webinar will show how AR can be applied to specific processes to achieve positive performance results.

The webinar presenters are Dexter Lilley, Executive Vice President and COO at Index AR Solutions, and John Arczynski, Director of Operations at Index AR Solutions. Lilley and Arczynski will discuss how AR is applicable in all phases of a capital project’s life cycle, from pre-visualization through build and inspection to operations and maintenance.

Index AR Solutions provides the expertise, experience and knowledge to implement AR, which is vastly different than virtual reality and its respective uses.

AR is the overlay of digital information on the real world. For example, the first down marker in televised American football games is an example of AR. Traditionally the domain of marketing, media, advertisement, games and other non-industrial uses, it’s only been recently that AR has been applied to industrial challenges, specifically to construction and manufacturing.

With more than 50 projects under its belt with teaming partner Newport News Shipbuilding, Index AR Solutions has proven results of dramatic improvements in a number of construction-related metrics. Lilley and Arczynski will also show how betting on one hardware platform is the best way to ruin enthusiasm for AR in your company.

The webinar is presented by Fiatech, an international community of stakeholders leading global development and adoption of innovative practices and technologies to realize the highest business value throughout the life cycle of capital assets.

The June 21 Fiatech webinar will be held from 11 a.m. to noon EDT. To register, go here:
