Title: AUTOMATED THREE-DIMENSIONAL LOCATION VERIFICATION OF CONSTRUCTION ITEMS
Abstract:
Embodiments are directed to real-time, automated location verification to ensure that construction items are positioned in a correct location and orientation in three dimensions (x, y, z) as identified by model data for a construction site prior to finalization of the construction items. Systems and methods are provided for precisely locating and determining a position/orientation of a placed item at a construction site, verifying whether the position/orientation is correct, and providing an indication (e.g., a confirmation or an alarm) in real-time as to whether the item is placed correctly, placed incorrectly, or missing. The systems and methods provided herein thus result in avoiding costly misplacements and the required re- workings before they happen (i.e., by allowing correction of the location/placement prior to final and permanent installation).
