Abstract: There has been much work on Scan-vs-BIM, and it has implications on construction productivity, quality, and safety. However, these methods need to be extended /altered to do real-time Scan-vs-BIM. This paper presents the extensions for existing methods such as registration, point matching, object detection, and pose estimation to cater to real-time Scan-vs-BIM. Further, we describe the applications for such methods in construction and de-scribes the challenges for their implementation. We con-clude by implication of this paper on researchers working on augmented reality and construction robotics.
