User requirements for mobile AR and BIM utilization in building life cycle management

Abstract

This article presents the first phase of our study, analysing the requirements that were collected from users based on participatory design principle. With the involvement of the users in the design process, we aimed at obtaining information of applications that would have real benefits in the building maintenance work. As a result of this user study, the most potential application ideas were listed. The ideas most relevant for this study were the ones in which AR and BIM are combined. These include for example fault diagnosis, mobile route guidance inside the building, viewing interiors of building through different user profiles, and taking photos and linking them to the 3D model. The first prototype version of the application is implemented using the user data as background and supportive information. A requirement specification for the system architecture and tracking technology for the indoors AR implementation is presented. In the next phases of the project, the prototype application will be tested and evaluated by the end-users in actual field tests with a real world pilot case. Hence, in the second phase of the study the users will evaluate concrete prototypes built based on their own descriptions.
