Abstract [en]

Mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones are quite common in this day. The author of this thesis wanted to know how common these mobile devices are in the building industry and how they are used and what potential an app could have. The author thus conducted an investigation on this matter, mainly in the form of interviews.

Answers given by the interviews were then used as a basis to survey the usage of mobile devices and the usage of different kinds of apps. An investigation of different apps with the potential to be used by professionals in the building industry has been carried through. Apps which manage such things as scanning documents, measuring distances and handle communication. A further more advanced study of a floor plan making app, called MagicPlan has also been done. The equipment that were used were Samsung Galaxy S2, Apple iPad , Samsung Note 10.1 Tablet, Leica Disto, Leica Scanstation C10, Canon Pixma MP270.

The results of the examination show that the usages of mobile devices are widely spread in the building industry, however, seldom to its full potential. The results also indicates that the tested apps likely can be used by professionals in some cases.
