Impact of 3D Visualisation and Mixed Reality

In today’s world, with dynamically changing economic and political synergies around the globe, infrastructure investments and decision making has become critically challenging. With several questions in mind such as, how can you predict the human behaviour towards an infrastructure which is not yet built? How to manage the traffic issues in the current scenario and plan in a way that will support the environment and safety for many years to come? How to justify the capital investment and its returns? The decision-making mechanism requires tools that can create confidence in engineering solutions and investments.

The quest lies in exploring if we can combine accurate human behaviour and its impact on infrastructure that can provide an ideal condition for simulating different scenarios in a realistic and detailed virtual environment; and provide a tool that builds confidence for decision making at a political and public level.

With a growing emphasis on developing smart solutions for city management and evaluating the infrastructure impact, it is a challenge to create solutions that best fit the needs of any city. It creates several ambiguities for the decision makers. In several developing economies worldwide, it has been observed that due to the lack of confidence in the solutions, no decisions are made – thus resulting in worst to grim traffic conditions.

Transport Infrastructure is only one of the spinal component of a city’s lifeline. Although the mobility of people and businesses lies on the transportation, its survival is linked to the urban form, population growth, human behaviours, safety, economy and social development, environmental impact and development cost. The success of transport solutions is completely based on its acceptability in the very ecosystem and thus the importance of its understanding by all stakeholders.

Solutions offered by Sunovatech are focused on all verticals of Transport Infrastructure from Public Transport to Roads and Highways, From Planning to Policy development. We use 3D Visualisation and Mixed/Augmented Reality to demonstrate transport impact in conjunction with all other directly or indirectly related stakeholders.

One can term these solutions as virtual infrastructures that bring together Transport Planning, Traffic Engineering, Urban Development, Urban Forms, Utilities and Human Behaviours on a unified 3-dimensional platform thus creating an enhanced imagery in a virtual environment of the future operations and impact of any transport infrastructure.

Sunovatech’s engineering background sets it apart in a fast-growing industry. We understand transportation and civil engineering better than most of our contemporaries. Our USP is implementing the project before it becomes a reality, by layering mathematical analysis with visualization of operations. The model it creates can accurately predict how successful a project is going to be – ergonomically, behaviourally, socially and in terms of efficiency.

The key factor that allows Sunovatech to produce accurate virtual models of transport infrastructure is the convergence of mathematical simulation models to the virtual environment, in simpler words mathematical data from traffic and related Infrastructure Simulators is processed using a ‘SVR Engine’ that simplifies the complex statistical information to dynamic Animation Key Frames which is then integrated with 3D Models to produce a powerful tool that visually analyses the holistic impact of infrastructure proposal on its operations and associated stakeholders.

Future advancements in transportation and infrastructure visualizations are predicted to revolve around Smart City Infrastructure Management. Sunovatech’s entry in the world of Mixed/ Augmented reality by connecting the Infrastructure Management System (where government can track and manage public infrastructural assets) with the virtual model of the entire infrastructure will function as a gamechanger platform. The Platform will be capable of connecting the real time information from several stakeholders to a single unified platform providing the layers of information to its user experience.

Human lives have dynamically changed since the introduction of Smartphones, not just as a lifestyle tool but a necessity. We are now moving towards an era of data dependent civilisations. The priorities and lifestyle are now, to some extent, based on the artificial intelligence offered by several applications. Just a few years ago, who could have imagined that a single solution that is a smart phone could impact the mobility to such a greater extent? Furthermore, with the introduction of the smart glasses, several sectors such as training, manufacturing, warehousing have already started taking the advantage by providing information to simplify understanding and processes resulting in saving time, efforts and resources.

Sunovatech’s Mixed/Augmented Reality solutions are focused towards the need for providing platforms that bring the infrastructure operations and its users on a common platform. Our current developments are directed towards creating tools that that connect users to a persistent layer of reality. For example, a user could be informed about the occupancy and the route guidance of the public transport service, or a driver could be warned against the road hazards well in advance without obstructing his focus from the road. The possibilities are endless, and in this, future users just need to be in the right place to take advantage of the augmented layer on the real-world scenarios.

Mixed reality has the potential to change how people commute, work, communicate and relate to the world. With the help of mixed reality, decision makers will be able to personally and virtually assess the assets, helping them making swift and efficient decisions resulting in a small contribution towards creating a smarter and sustainable transport infrastructure for generations to come.

Future advancements in transportation and infrastructure visualizations are predicted to revolve around Smart City Infrastructure Management. The Platform will be capable of connecting the real time information from several stakeholders to a single unified platform providing the layers of information to its user experience.

Sunovatech will be showcasing it’s 3D Visualisation and Mixed Reality solutions for transport Infrastructure at the 2018 Intertraffic Amsterdam, Hall No 08, Stand 08.411, March 20 – 23, 2018.
