AE Grad Student Presents at VR Workshop

In early October, graduate student Jennifer Lather was invited to attend and present at a workshop in Immersive Visualization for Construction, Engineering, and Design at Odeh Engineers’ Rhode Island office. She presented a survey of interactive workspaces, or technology-enabled spaces, in a session devoted to understanding the breadth of these technological options to support AEC industry specific tasks. In addition, she held a focus group that concentrated on the classification of these spaces and their respective use cases. Session participants furthered their understanding of the value of interactive workspaces and their respective uses in AEC project settings. Participants also brainstormed additional present and future uses in terms of reasonability and desirability for trends in the AEC Industry. A summary of the results will be developed and incorporated into Lather’s Master’s thesis, expected to be available in December 2015. The workshop was sponsored by Scalable Display Technologies, a software company specializing in large format display image blending.
