In the Dutch soil alone, more than 1.7 million kilometers of utilities are underground. These utilities and ducts are used for water, electricity, gas, oil and cables for data and telecom traffic.
Every year about 20% of all excavation work causes damage to these cables and ducts. That's about 41,000 cases. This means a direct cost of about € 34 million a year. Using BlindGuide AR maps can prevent this excavation damage quickly and easily.
BlindGuide AR Maps App:
With the BlindGuide AR Maps App, you can view vector information from drawings (such as AutoCAD and GeoJSON geo data). In the tablet or phone screen, the user view the real world and his GPS position augmented with the utilities, ducts and other geospatial data that should lie on that position (in accordance with the uploaded drawings).
Next to utilities and ducts the BlindGuide AR maps app can show any foreign object buried in the ground such as explosives, toxic waste or historic objects preventing the user to dig at a potential hazardous spot.
