However, it will be completed created digitally beforehand, using so-called Building Information Modelling (BIM). The digital building twin enables the planning, implementation and management of buildings with the help of software. All building data is digitally recorded, combined and linked.
The Virtual Reality Lab of the IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems already makes a virtual tour possible in the future House of Digitalisation. The VR Lab is part of the House of Digitalisation network which is being continuously expanded. It shows the direction the virtual journey could take. The centrepiece is the OmniDeck, a type of round conveyor belt with a diameter of four meters which offers almost limitless freedom of movement in different virtual worlds in combination with a new cableless generation of HTC VR goggles. Omnideck is only being deployed at four other sites throughout Europe in research and teaching.
The deployment of virtual reality and augmented reality is becoming increasingly interesting for many companies, for example in the fields of service, maintenance etc. The House of Digitalisation should support companies in their digital transformation, above all when it comes to know-how transfer and the linking of companies interested in digitalisation. The ground-breaking ceremony is planned to take place before June 2021.
