DescriptionAugmented Reality (AR) enhances the user's view of the existing world by adding the computer-generated model. AR technology is used in many domains to help users complete tasks more efficiently. This paper reports a systematic review of literature on where and how AR is used in the architecture, engineering, and construction industries for remote collaboration, identifying the devices adopted as well as their impact and challenges. The initial search resulted in a total of 695 studies, of which 12 were screened for final review. We found that integrating AR results in a significant reduction in time to complete the task, errors, and workload while at the same time improving the performance and accuracy of risk communication in construction projects. This review concludes with a discussion of the findings and the opportunities for future research.
