Gear 360 camera is taken onto site and captures a 360 degree first person perspective environment of site conditions/installations. The image/video is then transmitted back to site office or another site on the project for lessons learnt/general understanding of what advanced installations look like.
The user in the office wears the virtual reality headset and experiences being on site at the same time the video/photo was taken as if they were there at that time. This footage can also be live streamed to offices of site inspections so multiple people can sit in on site walk arounds without being there.
This had led to huge time savings in commuting between sites or going out into potentially hazardous environments. It also enables first person understanding and perspective of site installations without being there.
One camera at one location can broadcast to multiple VR Headsets at multiple other locations spread across the C360 project.
