3D MOVE: Mobile Immersive Visualisation Environment
Fully immersive virtual reality experiences are difficult to achieve. The current solutions on offer: low quality displays within fixed environments; single user head-mounted display systems or expensive specially adapted rooms, all struggle to display complex Building Information Modelling (BIM) datasets efficiently.
3D MOVE: Mobile Immersive Visualisation Environment, is a compact and transportable system that offers the benefits of a £1,000,000 virtual reality suite for just £30,000, including the cost of hardware and software. 3D MOVE is capable of immersing groups of users within a Computer Aided Design (CAD) model at a 1:1 scale. Items displayed are life-size and there is active stereoscopic projection for depth perception. Participants can navigate the system in real time, exploring complex datasets that are typically found on large infrastructure projects.
The system’s key innovation is its practicality: it fits into a cupboard; is transported to locations in a small van and can be operational within an hour of arriving on site. 3D MOVE is self-supporting, requires no special tools for assembly and runs from a standard power socket. Just two people are required to install it.
The Judge's said, “The strength of this highly impressive innovation lays in its practicality and potential impact on practice. Its contribution is to enable the functionality of fixed 3D visualisation facilities to be achieved by means of a highly cost-effective mobile product. The judging panel was hugely impressed, and recognises the product’s great potential within the industry.”
