“What we’ve found is a
90 per cent reduction
in QA inspections and
quality inspection time
with augmented reality,
and being able to identify
errors that were not in
the paper schematics.”

“Look at a caisson operation. You’ve got all these things
going on at once: guys drilling, guys coming in with Bobcats.
It’s kind of a choregraphed ballet,” he said.
“With our system we can
actually do a training solution that goes through all of that
and see what steps people are doing compared to what they
should be doing, and we can create a safer environment.”
The Avatar software can also help achieve significantly
better production rates. Toppel says in some cases using it can
translate into time savings of as much as five to 10 minutes
“That’s important because it’s all about unit rates in deep
foundation. It’s all about ‘how many can I get done in a
day?’” he said.
Toppel says Avatar solutions also help make it easier to
share knowledge between senior employees and personnel
on the ground. Therefore, tasks that would normally be
handled by senior staff can now be performed by less experienced
Perhaps one of the coolest features of the Avatar AR solutions
is that users are provided with a sort of X-ray vision into any
kind of object. Users can easily pull the object out of wherever
it is located and examine it from any angle.
