The event attracted 17 international teams from 13 universities and 2 companies to share the state-of-the-art research in Digital Twin, AI, Blockchain, VR/AR/MR for construction revolution. Our research, “Loco-AR: Lift Operation Coordination using BIM and Multi-user AR”, provided a novel solution to superimpose real-time 4D BIM to physical construction sites and empower information sharing among crane-lift co-workers at various locations, aiming to enhance the collaboration culture for the construction industry. The research should also facilitate safe and efficient MiC project delivery. The awarded research was supported by the Research Impact Fund of the Hong Kong Research Grant Council (Project No.: HKU R7027-18).
