IRVINE, CA, July 12, 2023 – EON Reality, the world leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR)-based knowledge and skills transfer, is thrilled to announce that its esteemed partner, ITS Umbria Academy, has launched the innovative HoloBIM application and made significant contributions to the national ITS 4.0 project.
ITS Umbria Academy, known for its top-tier non-university higher technological education, has further exemplified its dedication to fostering digital skills among young Italians with these recent initiatives. Leveraging EON Reality’s robust EON-XR platform in the HoloBIM application, the Academy continues to bridge the gap between academic learning and real-world application.
The HoloBIM application, a key outcome of this partnership, combines the Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities of Autodesk Revit projects with EON Reality’s EON-XR platform. Through Augmented Reality, HoloBIM projects 3D models of complex system parts directly onto construction sites, enabling installers to work error-free and in line with BIM project specifications.
Dan Lejerskar, CEO and Chairman of EON Reality said, “We are delighted to witness the innovative application of EON-XR technology through the HoloBIM application. This not only showcases the limitless potential of AR/VR technology in the real world but also reaffirms EON Reality’s commitment to the democratization of such advanced technology.”
