Generating accurate floor plans from 3D scans

DigitalBridge builds high-tech applications to help our users embark upon their renovation projects, allowing them to visualise what their room will look like after a re-decoration, and giving them a realistic idea of what they can do with their space. We are using latest developments of Augmented Reality and 3D capture devices to offer customers new possibilities for their next home renovation. In this blog post we are going to talk about a technique under development to estimate a floor plan automatically from a 3D scan of a space, and outline some of its uses.

How we use Machine learning at DigitalBridge

It’s difficult to renovate a bathroom. There are a thousand things to do, all of which a typical customer has never done before. This problem is compounded by the imagination gap. When a customer views a product, it can be difficult for them to picture how that product will look in their bathroom. Is there a good place for that product? Is the product an appropriate size for the room? What does it look like in that space? These questions, and questions like these, are difficult to answer for a novice bathroom designer.

What’s the ‘job’ a dream bathroom is doing?

Jobs to Be Done (JTBD) is a theory that helps to understand the reasons why someone hires a particular product.

Our Head of UX & Design Tina takes a look at JTBD and how we're using it to influence our product at DigitalBridge.
