What is ARinfuse?

ARinfuse is an Erasmus+ project that aims to infuse skills in Augmented Reality for geospatial information management in the context of utility underground infrastructures, such as water, sewage, electricity, gas and fiber optics.

What is the ARinfuse training offer?

In this field, there is a real need for an accurate positioning of the underground utilities, to avoid damages to the existing infrastructures. Information communication technologies (ICT), in fusion with global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), GIS and geodatabases and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) are able to offer the possibility to convert the geospatial information of the underground utilities into a powerful tool for field workers, engineers and managers.

Who is our audience?

ARinfuse is mainly addressed to technical professional profiles (future and current) in the utility sector that use, or are planning to use AR technology into practical applications of ordinary management and maintenance of utility networks.

Our Objective

ARinfuse targets education and training at  

  • Higher Education Institutions (HEI)
  •  and Vocational Education and Training (VET)

in the field of geoinformatics, with special reference to management and operations of utility underground infrastructures, such as water, sewage, electricity, gas, fiber optics, etc.

Overall objective:

Our overall objectives is to develop new approaches for better competitiveness and improved employment possibilities in particular at regional and local level.
This objective is addressed by developing more attractive education and training programmes.
Specific objectives:
ARinfuse focuses on the development of new learning modules where augmented reality technologies are merged with geoinformatics and applied within the utility infrastructure sector.
