Buildings shape cities as those cities grow from and nurture people living and working within the built environment. Thus, the conceptualization of smart building should be brought closer to the smart city initiatives that particularly target ensuring and enhancing the sustainability and quality of urban life. In this paper, we propose that a smart...

Virtual Reality (VR) is considered among the major technologies to address the inefficient collaboration issue caused by the predominant use of 2D drawings in the construction industry. However, there is still a knowledge gap between researchers and practitioners about the actual benefits of VR in the business context. This paper presents the benef...
Article
Background: Smart glasses and other extended reality (XR) solutions provide new ways of utilizing technical documentation with hands-busy tasks in the field. Scaling up the use of XR solutions in industry has been difficult due to the manual authoring of content for each device and task. Therefore, authoring solutions and information design methods...

Speech technology has matured so that voice-based reporting utilizing speech-to-text can be applied in various domains. Speech has two major benefits: it enables efficient reporting and speech input improves the quality of the reports since reporting can be done as a part of the workflow without delays between work and reporting. However, designing...

This paper discusses the importance of long-term research and co-innovation enabled by jointly defined themes and collaboration models in interorganisational research networks. We present a research strategy process at a large manufacturing company, in conjunction with the process of defining strategic research partners and research collaboration o...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper discusses how to navigate between research and innovation projects of different time frames in a corporate setting. Building on three case studies, the paper presents views on, challenges in, and the expected outcomes of agile approaches and reflects on short-, mid-and long-term innovation horizons. The findings shed light on the challen...
Conference Paper
Augmented reality (AR) technologies start to be mature enough to be used in industrial work settings. However, human factors and ergonomics (HFE) and safety issues have not been considered thoroughly yet. The purpose of this study was to identify what kind of postures users adopt when using a tablet based AR system during a maintenance task. In add...

Print media is in a crisis; it is losing its share of advertising-its main source of income-to digital media. Our aim is to determine how augmented reality (AR) and other hybrid media solutions change print media's value chain and what kind of opportunities they offer. We studied both human and technical aspects and critical challenges. We intervie...

... The construction industry and the buildings themselves, their materials, heating, ventilation etc. and other activities related to their use exploit scarce resources (e.g. water) and provide a significant amount of the global load of greenhouse gas emissions [3][4][5][6]. ...
... Project management teams in construction need timely and accurate information of the project and its progress with respect to the original budget, deadlines, quality specifications, and safety requirements [3]. Construction projects are planned and managed by diverse teams, known as project stakeholders, often geographically distributed [14]. Technology plays an important role in bridging the gap between different project stakeholders through remote collaboration [15]. ...
... However, with predictive or condition-based maintenance, the tasks vary from day to day and from one piece of equipment to another, and even experienced maintenance technicians need guidance on which tasks to perform. Therefore, there is an increased need to provide instructions, even for experts [2]. Naturally, at the same time, novice technicians need more detailed instructions. ...
... Despite VR being a potential design tool (Wolfartsberger, 2019) to address the challenges of technical documentation, there is no generalizable knowledge on how it can be applied to support these activities. To address these shortcomings and further explore the role of VR as a collaborative space for global teams, this article presents a case study on how the COVE-VR platform (Burova et al., 2021) can be used to facilitate remote asynchronous collaboration of multinational departments and deliver novel ways of generating digital content for documentation purposes. The article contributes to the field of Industrial Maintenance by answering the following research questions: RQ1: What is the value of transferring collaboratively performed industrial maintenance method and technical documentation creation into VR? ...
... Gaze estimation techniques have many critical applications in various domains including human-computer interaction [2], virtual reality [3] and medical analysis [4]. Appearance based gaze estimation leveraging deep learning and convolutional neural networks have gained great traction over the past several years [12,13,14]. ...
... Therefore, there is also an increasing interest in using smart glasses to deliver technical instructions to the field. As DITA scales well to different devices and uses cases [31], it is also a solution that supports possible new delivery channels for technical instructions. Consequently, even though we tested our concept with a mobile phone in this study, the scalability of DITA means that the same information can be used on other small-screen devices such as smart glasses, wearable displays, and smartwatches. ...
... Ergonomics describes the influence of the AR HMD on a user's gestures and form when performing a particular task. It considers whether the user's wellbeing is affected by the AR HMD or how the gestures affect the user's posture and the overall performance of the system (Aromaa et al. 2018). For example, the form factor of the AR HMD hardware, such its burdensome weight and low user field of view, causes the users to become potentially tired or to exert themselves in unsafe body positions during the task execution. ...
... Conventional promotional methods for social issues mainly involve the use of designed printed posters or television commercials. However, with the maturing and flourishing development of internet technology globally and the decreased consumption of paper newspapers and magazines, the value of printed ads has significantly decreased since 2008 (Siltanen et al., 2017). In 2016, the percentage of Taiwan's citizens who mainly watched videos online was higher than the percentage of those who mainly watched television programs. ...
