Augmented Reality (AR) Experience
By using a tablet device to hover over the specially programmed diorama and informational panels featured in the exhibition, this tour allows you to virtually witness and learn about our latest construction technologies through an AR experience.
AR is also incorporated into the outdoor observation deck part of the tour, where visitors will point their tablet device toward the construction site to view an AR architectural rendering of Naruse Dam upon completion.
A Facility of Various Experiences
The LABO facility is equipped with a diorama, informational panels, and a field museum. Visitors can learn about a variety of topics such as the "A4CSEL" system that links multiple automated heavy machinery units with an optimal construction management system that incorporates AI technology, the various cutting-edge technologies being used on our construction site, and the objectives of Naruse Dam through the AR images that appear on the informational panels.
Outdoor Observation Deck
The “Field Museum” outdoor observation deck provides a sweeping view of the Naruse Dam construction site.
From the deck, visitors can observe the 20+ automated driver-less heavy duty construction machines in action as they build the dam body, and use the AR function on their tablet device to view an architectural rendering of the dam body when completed.
