This course explores the applications of emerging technologies in automating construction layout and documenting the construction process. Laser scanning and photogrammetry-based point cloud technologies for documenting existing or as-built conditions will be introduced. The course will also cover processing the raw point cloud data for integration with other VDC applications. Major topics also include cloud-based mobile construction documentation technologies and robotic total station application in construction layout. VDC software such as Autodesk ReCap and Navisworks will be used to process cloud point data and visualizations. Lab fee required.
