Erasmus+ project that aims to infuse skills in Augmented Reality for geospatial information management in the context of utility underground infrastructures, such as water, sewage, electricity, gas and fiber optics.

ARInfuse is an Erasmus+ project that aims to infuse skills in Augmented Reality for geospatial information management in the context of utility underground infrastructures, such as water, sewage, electricity, gas and fiber optics. In this field, there is a real need for an accurate positioning of the underground utilities, to avoid damages to the existing infrastructures. Information communication technologies (ICT), in fusion with global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), GIS and geodatabases and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) are able to offer the possibility to convert the geospatial information of the underground utilities into a powerful tool for field workers, engineers and managers.

ARinfuse is mainly addressed to technical professional profiles (future and current) in the utility sector that use, or are planning to use AR technology into practical applications of ordinary management and maintenance of utility networks. Being an Erasmus+ project, the main objective of ARInfuse is the development of attractive education and training programmes. Other objective is the development of partnerships between learning institutions, business and intermediary bodies, to improve the effectiveness of learning experiences. The project started on December 2018 for a duration of 2 years.
