Description:

Augmented reality is becoming more prevalent in society and promises a new way of organizing information and visualizing data. When users are presented information in a visual form, they are two times more likely to use the data when making decisions, three times more likely to execute decisions as intended, and five times more likely to make decisions much faster than peers. Augmented reality has been incorporated into software apps to assist with egress, to identify the fire protection features and hazards geospatially, Viking developed AR to identify deluge valve components. These tools will expedite the sharing of information between all parties and make vital information available at a glance. The Fire Solutions Group has developed an AR platform called Fire Vision for the visualization and sharing of critical information in the field. This development effort and results will be shared during the presentation.
