Abstract

The process and product development phase of the research instrument for experiential action research is crucial in the success of the research. Due to time, space and resource limitations, fewer studies have concentrated on this development process. In this respect, research on Augmented Reality (AR) in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry is no exception. This is more evident in subsurface, urban utilities and infrastructure sector. Furthermore, a limited number of studies on AR/VR have utilized mobile devices as their enabling technologies. This paper sets out to contribute to the state-of-the-art in AR research for urban utilities and infrastructure by outlining a generic procedural workflow to be used for designing AR experiments for experiential research in this area. Given the fact that workflow development research in AR is still limited, this research presents a unique contribution in this area to date.
