Mixed reality: a new way to look at infrastructure

Cambridge University is partnering with Trimble and Microsoft to combine physical infrastructure data – such as design, construction and operational data – that is currently stored in separate archives. The goal is to make them available to civil engineers and other construction professionals through the latest mixed reality technologies. While civil engineers have built millions of physical assets over many centuries, they have done relatively little to create digital data repositories with integrated geometry, design, construction and operation data. This is not surprising given most existing physical assets started their lifecycle well before modern digital engineering technologies existed.
