Abstract:

Quality assurance at military construction sites presents a challenge for the Corps of Engineers and other participants. The cost and time required to travel between sites limits the ability of personnel to quickly respond to problems at remote sites and to communicate issues between all necessary decision makers. Also, it is difficult to organize and transmit multimedia project information digital pictures, video, electronic documents, and audio recordings so that others can access current project information in an intuitive and timely manner. The Digital Hardhat DHH technology enables dispersed users to capture and communicate multimedia field data to collaboratively solve problems, and collect and share information. The DHH is a pen-based personal computer with special Multimedia Facility Reporting System software that allows the field representative to save multimedia information into a project-specific database, which is then accessible to others through the World Wide Web.
