COMIT–where BIM meets augmented reality, point clouds and QR Codes (among other things)

Two weeks ago, I mentioned COMIT, Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT, and its forthcoming conference on how smart mobile devices can be used to add value to BIM. Since then (last week), I have attended the COMIT community day and AGM (held at BSRIA, Bracknell) and, from the round-table discussions, it was clear that some organisations already active in the mobile arena have yet to appreciate the implications of Building Information Modelling (BIM) for their business. This November’s conference at UCL in London, though, should help such people understand the challenges – and opportunities – that BIM presents. From the programme (PDF), talks and demonstrations include:

  • Building Information Modelling on an iPad
  • Getting BIM to the field – a surveyor’s role
  • Linking BIM through QR codes
  • Mobile BIM – managing the access and security challenges
  • Capturing 3D Geometry for BIM
  • Augmenting BIM with Reality
  • Using BIM to deliver project excellence in safety, quality and production

Speakers from the Institution of Civil Engineers, BT, Bentley, Halcrow, Costain, Timico, COMIT, Korec and Objective Computing will be taking part, and I will talking briefly on AEC industry use of social media (so there is therefore, of course, a hashtag – #MobiBIM). To book, click here (and tell them I sent you!).
