Description: The objective of this study is to identify the availability, accessibility, and reliability of using AR for construction inspection and review, QA, training, and improved project management through real-time information in a real world environment. AR has a potential to reduce the construction cost, improve the delivery time, and assist with overall management of a construction project. It is of interest to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to conduct a comprehensive study to investigate available AR technology, its reliability and practical application and how this technology can be applied for construction management.

The study shall document potential advantages, limitations, shortcomings, and cost of using AR as well as issues which could represent new challenges for the future. The study shall also document methodologies used to store, retrieve, and archive big data information obtained through the use of AR and how it is integrated into highway agency business processes. The project shall conduct case studies of AR application to assist in encouraging wider usage of AR in construction management of highway infrastructure.
