DamAR: Augmented reality in dam safety control

This paper explores the application of augmented reality to the inspection and monitoring of large structures, namely concrete dams. It proposes an approach to dam safety control, using augmented reality, focused on offering new visualization possibilities, that are not accessible using traditional methods. The specification and development of DamAR, a proof-of-concept prototype that allows the visualization, on-site, of relevant structural health monitoring information, in an augmented reality environment, is described, including the benefits to structural engineers and observation technicians. A preliminary evaluation, aimed at validating the proposed approach, shows that augmented reality technologies can be used efficiently in dam safety control.
