Visualising Wayfinding Models in AR at Paddington Station
For the first time in Network Rail history,
The new Wayfinding Design Guidance by Network Rail’s showcases the specification of new and existing directional signs within Network Rail managed stations. The guidance achieves consistency between wayfinding signage installations undertaken in different stations across the Network. It sets out the requirements for the provision of wayfinding in a coherent and consistent manner that enables designs and compliance to be measured.
To demonstrate their new family of Wayfinding Signage designs, Network Rail use ARki to visualise their 3d models in location, allowing project teams to experience the designs at full scale, and iterate the design process in real-time.
The project looks at how future stations can be easily modified, and improved, by using augmented reality as a tool for visualisation. At Paddington each signage model is positioned in place using ARki app, and incorporates simple annotations to highlight design components.
