Tool prevents unnecessary closures
A camera plan is essential for road authorities and contractors, but executing it can be difficult: first marking everything on a map, then closing off the road, and then sending out a truck and dummy camera and, finally, checking whether the positioning is even feasible. Afterwards, it often turns out that the carefully planned camera locations are not ideal.
In the Camera Validation Tool, a 3D model of the structure is displayed with the intended cameras placed in it. This provides a realistic representation. Even tilting and zooming in and out are possible. Clients and contractors are saved a lot of time, as the unnecessary closing of structures and unneeded camera placements no longer occur.
Link to design systems
The Camera Validation Tool forms part of the consultancy services provided by Witteveen+Bos. The basis for the tool is provided by VR-Infra or VR-Gebouwen (VR applications developed by Witteveen+Bos). If you would like to know more about VR, click here.
The cameras positions can be stored in ANT, Wittteveen+Bos’s parametric design system. If the position of a camera is adjusted, this is reflected in ANT. A change in ANT is also immediately visible in the Camera Validation Tool.
Benefits of the Camera Validation Tool
The tool saves clients and contractors a lot of time, as everything can be viewed on a computer.
Unnecessarily closing structures for a long time and unneeded camera placements are a thing of the past. This provides significant cost savings.
The camera plan is visible in advance in the tool, so you know beforehand whether it is correct. This avoids surprises during construction.
