3D Laser scanning + Virtual Reality = Enhanced Situational Awareness
Design Mill, Inc., a pioneering systems integrator and visualization innovator announces the launch of DMI VR, a new virtual reality hardware solution designed to provide an immersive and collaborative virtual reality experience.
DMI VR kits will include a VR headset, smartphone, and Bluetooth remote controller. In addition to hardware Design Mill plans to offer custom software development and integration services to create or transition existing content and systems into the virtual space.
Capable of integrating with multiple capture devices including laser scanners, 360 degree cameras, and various picture and video capture devices, DMI VR can also achieve multiple output displays to VR headsets and tablets.
Design Mill expects integration will be widespread with industries at the forefront to include real estate, education, defense, construction. Slated for release first is an DMI VR integration with Leica Geosystems. Design Mill has joined Leica’s Geosystems Partner Network to take advantage of their SDKs and harness the power of Leica TruView Global in Design Mill’s new VR solution for point cloud data.
The Leica Geosystems ScanStation is a professional-grade laser scanner that can operate in harsh environments to rapidly and accurately capture any kind of environment in rich 3D with amazing fidelity.
When viewed with DMI’s VR system, TruView Global data can be experienced by an entire network of web connected users who will virtually experience the scene in 3D as if they were there. Think “virtual reality Go To Meeting” with SME’s able to conduct immersive briefings while still in the field.
