This years Autodesk North American Construction Customer council meetings were held last week on June 23-24. DAQRI hosted the council meeting at their facilities in Los Angeles, CA. This invitation-only meeting allows senior construction business professionals to meet and discuss industry topics and best practices in applying technology to business challenges, and to discover new opportunities for their companies. This years meetings focused on the latest developments with initiatives and trends such as production planning, collaboration, building operations, the internet of things, wearable technology in the field and more. The meeting included facilitated discussions, presentations by fellow construction companies and Autodesk, demonstrations by Autodesk and DAQRI and a networking reception.

I was thrilled at the chance to experience the Smart Helmet being developed by DAQRI. According to DAQRI, their Smart Helmet bridges the gap between potential and experience, enhancing human abilities in industry by seamlessly connecting the human being to the work environment and providing relevant information instantaneously. Setting a new standard for industrial, professional-grade wearables, DAQRI Smart Helmet realizes the true potential of augmented reality and 4D in the enterprise space. As a developer, you can bring your vision and impact to the DAQRI ecosystem of industrial-grade wearable hardware, sophisticated vision systems and the DAQRI Industrial App Marketplace.
With its Intellitrack system and Industrial grade Inertial measurement unit, combined with the True 4D Display and High resolution 3D Depth Señor provides a great product for customers. From my hands-on experiences, DAQRI Smart Helmet has the potential to transform how work is done in Construction Industry. Watch this space for more details in the future.
