12th SPAR International Starts Next Monday, March 30 in Houston
March 23, 2015, Portland, Maine, USA, – SPAR Point Group today announced several new developments for the 12th annual SPAR International Conference & Exhibition on 3D Technologies for Asset Actualization. A live demonstration of DAQRI’s Smart Helmet, Atheer Lab’s Smart Glasses, and Euclideon’s Hologram Room are among the new happenings slated for the 2015 event, taking place March 30-April 2, 2015 in Houston. Serving up cutting-edge content on 3D technologies is table-stakes at SPAR. The broader vision is to increase attendee interaction with the technologies on display providing an immersive experience with real-world solutions attendees can put to use right away.
World leading enterprise augmented reality company, DAQRI, will be giving a live demonstration of the DAQRI Smart Helmet – the world’s only wearable human machine interface, which is improving efficiency, safety on the job and providing cost savings for Fortune 500 companies in aerospace energy, government, manufacturing, oil and gas, transportation and more. “We are excited about DAQRI’s participation and the possibilities for this technology," said SPAR conference program manager Linda McLaughlin.
Atheer Labs will also be giving live demonstrations of Atheer’s Smart Glasses, a 3D Augmented Interactive Reality™ (AiR™) platform, which combines immersive 3D augmented reality with natural gesture-based interaction.
Also new to SPAR International this year, is Australian technology company Euclideon’s hologram room, which attendees can walk through for a unique immersive experience. Euclideon has created hardware and designed software to offer a complete holographic customer solution. Users may now scan in real world environments using Euclideon's revolutionary solidscan technology and explore them in Euclideon's hologram rooms.
Additionally, the 2015 event will feature a UAV/UAS pavilion, including Sky-Futures USA who announced March 18 that they have been awarded a 333 Exemption from the FAA that permits the use of UAVs for oil and gas inspections in the USA. Also exhibiting on the UAV/UAS pavilion are innovative solutions from senseFLY, Drone Deploy, Airgon, Phoenix Aerial Systems , Altavian, Xact Sense and others showcasing platforms and related systems on the exhibit floor. “SPAR is all about what’s new and what’s next in 3D measurement and imaging” said Lisa Murray, SPAR International Director. “3D professionals need education and updates about how best to integrate UAS into current workflows. As such, we have added a UAV pavilion and programming to arm delegates with insight into the emerging UAV/UAS market and the inherent opportunities for end-to-end 3D.”
The SPAR International conference program will feature presentations from over 90 experts in data capture, point cloud processing and delivery, who will share best practices for using 3D technologies to improve processes, produce spot-on deliverables, and save time and money. New learning levels mean content for everyone, from beginners to 3D whizzes to asset owners assessing the business case for using 3D tools.
Furthermore, the SPAR International exhibition will showcase solutions from leading 3D hardware manufacturers, software suppliers and service providers including market leaders such as Autodesk, AVEVA LFM, Bentley, FARO, Leica Geosystems, Optech, RIEGL USA, Surphaser, Topcon, Trimble, and Z+F and 30 brand new exhibiting companies.
