Abstract

When compared to a computer-generated environment with scenes and objects that appear real, virtual reality (VR) immerses the user in their surroundings. A DT is a virtual model created to represent a physical object accurately. The study aims to present results from a thorough literature review on a global overview of the digitisation of the construction industry, with a focus on DT and VR. Utilizing predetermined inclusion/exclusion criteria, relevant information from journal articles and other pertinent grey literature was systematically reviewed to find the practical applications of DT and VR using the PRISMA guideline. Planning, designing, managing, and constructing buildings utilized DT and VR technologies. Particularly, the collaboration between humans and robots, as well as the safety of workers on construction sites, have been improved by DT and VR.
