How XYZ created the world’s most accurate AR headset for construction

The global Augmented Reality (AR) market is projected to reach $88.4 billion by 2026. There’s no doubt this technology has advanced considerably within the construction industry over the past five years. However, the accuracy of early innovations left a lot to be desired and failed to deliver solutions fit for purpose for the construction sector, an industry battling rework and errors which is costing projects time and money.

The construction industry has been failed in the past by technology, particularly Augmented Reality solutions, through false promises and low-accuracy AR. This has led to a slower uptake and a lack of confidence in new technology. Putting user experience at the heart of tech development is critical to ensure the industry needs are met and to unlock the full potential of onsite accuracy and productivity.

In this live webinar on 17th November, Guy Newsom and Lawrence Hoar from XYZ Reality, explore the importance of on-site accuracy, and how the Atom, our Engineering Grade AR headset, was developed to enable precision in every phase of a construction project.

The discussion will include:

  • The importance of on-site accuracy

  • How the Atom was developed

  • What makes the Atom different from other AR solutions

  • Why now?

  • Vision for the future.

  • Q&A session.

Join this webinar at 3pm GMT (10am EST) on 17th November to learn key takeaways about technology in construction and the challenges in designing an Augmented Reality hardware product for the industry. You’ll also get to participate in a Q&A with the panel.
