  • Test application of communication tools between the center and the site

    Date : 2021-08-31 ~ 2021-08-31

    Center for Smart Construction Technology demonstrated a remote video conference (AR_WORK Remote) between the Center (Digital Collaboration Room) and the site on Tuesday, August 31.

    By utilizing real-time discussion and file sharing, we were able to communicate smoothly with the site in a non-face-to-face environment.

    Also, it was possible to capture, edit, and record photos immediately on the screen to accurately communicate and save instructions.

    We will strive to develop and spread smart technologies that are small but definite and useful at work.
