Trimble announces the FieldLink MR app, a mixed reality solution for building layouts. Based on the Trimble Connect collaboration platform, Trimble FieldLink MR provides a new way to execute construction layouts, enabling professionals to quickly navigate to tasks on the jobsite and get more done in less time. The app runs on a Trimble XR10 with HoloLens 2, a mixed reality device with integrated hard hat.
Trimble is showcasing the new innovation at the 2022 International Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration (AHR) Expo in Las Vegas, January 31-February. February 2, 2022.
With Trimble FieldLink MR, field workers can visualize construction data without relying on hand-held controllers for step-by-step navigation to locate each point. Visual cues presented through mixed reality hard hats naturally guide workers directly to each point so they can actually lay out relevant information on the construction site. Attracting and retaining skilled workers remains a major challenge for many contractors, and reducing the complexity of site layouts is critical to enabling inexperienced employees to deliver high-quality work the first time.
“Trimble’s FieldLink solution enables users to pinpoint digital building information in the physical world. FieldLink MR is an extension of the application that seamlessly integrates cutting-edge mixed reality technology to help construction professionals be more efficient in the field,” said Martin Holmgren, general manager of Trimble’s Construction Site Solutions division. “This integration provides a more efficient and intuitive workflow by making the layout process more natural and context-sensitive.”
Trimble’s layout and mixed reality solutions are part of the Trimble Connected Construction ecosystem, leveraging the Trimble Connect collaboration platform. Contractors from different industries and stages of the construction life cycle can work together for more automated layout and fabrication. Field productivity solutions are driven directly by buildable data, reducing the need for data transformation and the potential for error. Using buildable data and real-time collaboration, project stakeholders can work together to optimize the design, build, and operations lifecycle.
Trimble FieldLink MR is expected to be available from Trimble and BuildingPoint distribution partners in the first half of 2022 and can be downloaded through the Microsoft Store. Trimble XR10 with HoloLens 2 is available through Trimble and BuildingPoint distribution partners.
