High bandwidth environments
Recent developments in networked 3D virtual worlds and the proliferation of high bandwidth communications technology have the potential to dramatically improve collaboration in the construction industry. This project will focus on how these systems and the associated commercial tools can be used in a high bandwidth environment. This project focuses on the early stages of a project in which the models for the project are being developed and revised.
The project looks at two aspects of collaboration in virtual environments:
- 1. The processes that enable effective collaboration using high bandwidth information communication technology.
- 2. The models that allow for multiple disciplines to share their views ina a synchronous virtual environment.
