Trimble and Bentley announces strategic alliance to enable intelligent positioning on site, and potentially more!
"Trimble's Provisioning of the Connected Work Site and Bentley's Provisioning of Virtual Positioning Leverages 3D Precision for Construction and Operations Quality, Efficiency, and Safety...Intelligent positioning now enables these engineering models to be real-time and real-place referenced, from and into mobile devices in the field, through immersive environments from both Bentley and Trimble. Users piloting the integration of physical positioning from Trimble with virtual positioning from Bentley, facilitated by information mobility innovations, have identified significant savings of time and money, and continue to uncover new benefit cases."
This is a big news from BIM/VDC point of view. Many of us have been thinking about this idea of linking positioning with BIM models etc. In fact I attended couple of classes at AU2012 where they showcased some examples of digital layout etc. This new partnership/solution would enable digital layout in more intelligent way. I am quite excited by this new partnership and looking forward to explore this further.
