CIC Innovation Awards - Award Ceremony D

"Student Innovation Prize" at CIC Construction Innovation Award 2019

Construction progress monitoring and control is one of the most significant tasks of construction management. However, current practices and tools mainly rely on manual checking and adjustment, which is labour-intensive and error-prone. To address the challenges this project proposes an augmented reality (AR) and computer vision (CV) integrated approach aiming to monitor the construction progress automatically and accurately.
