Smartphone application through sketchup helping blind and impaired persons to navigate through a place easily

The engineers at the University of Nevada, Reno launched a new system alias Navatar. This system provides a great assistance to blind or visually-impaired person by allowing them to locate through a large building (a hospital, lab, office etc) easily.


Navatar uses the sensors in a smartphone to detect progress along a map of a building.

In this system a 3-D map of the building is generated with SketchUp program. The user places it in their starting point and destination and the system provides them turn-by-turn directions and at the same time, calculates footsteps and notices changes in orientation so as to obtain a rough idea of the position of the user in the building.
By utilizing the sensors in the phone and map data, Navatar can trace the user to within six feet and perfectly find someone into the surrounding area of their destination. Besides, this new system can also give dictation by telling "turn right, then second door on the left," etc. and thus help user to easily find the way into the area.


This new system can also be helpful in some other situation like when a fireman is navigating a smoky and unknown building or a person is locating their way around a large area as for instance an airport.

Sketchup for Fire Services

Sketchup can be utilized for various purposes - from 3D modeling, visualization, rendering to GIS modeling, solar modeling, fire scene modeling etc.

Sketchup can provide clear communication among fire service learner as it can create realistic 3-D imagery & visuals to be utilized for training & after-action reviews.

Firefighters can also use Google Earth images (3Dmodels) and export to sketchup for alteration or presentation in pre-incident plans, incident action plans (IAPs) and after-action reviews (AARs). 

From a sketchup model the firefighters can get useful information regarding a building construction. Fire fighters can download a model and gather information on vanishing roofs expose truss lofts, balloon frames and horizontal avenues for fire spread.


SketchUp models are also utilized to learn line-of-duty deaths (LODDs). By applying sketchup firefighters can visualize a perfect representation of the incident scene from historic reports and site visits. Important lessons about this LODD are handed over to the newest firefighters.

The model was applied as the base for interviews with crews prevailing on scene at the incident. Later on those interviews were merged with exported SketchUp graphics to generate a lessons-learned video.

With sketchup the fire fighters can “walk” through the virtual structure, examine the construction, interiors, hoselines and apparatus on scene. They can also observe 3-D rooftop views of the fireground that were just scribbles beforehand.



The fire fighters are able to create simple block models and export 3-D models instantly. These models will act as methods for pre-plans, AARs, building construction lessons and kitchen-table tactical discussions.

The sketchup is useful for clear, brief training illustration. With sketchup a lieutenant imaginatively diagrams fireground anticipations to a crew. Recruit firefighters to go into a virtual fireground.
In brief sketchup can be useful for fire services for Pre-Incident planning, Post Incident Analysis & promotion assessment centers.

Impact of Sketchup 3D for future


SketchUp is a great demanding software for all modellers. Recently, Google sold their SketchUp tools to the Trimble because of SketchUp 3D modelling is non-core business. Sketchup is a software for architecture and it is free to download  that helps to create 3D modelling design and models. 
google sketchup

There is not such kind of mention by Google what is the actual reason to sell the product to Trimble inspite of SketchUp blog is mentioned they are looking forward, SketchUp is very important tool for all designers and all are get the benefit from SketchUp.Trimble comments is like as a partner with Google they developing sketchup 3D warehouse.
Google sells sketchup Trimble

There is many questions in this particular matter and everything is not clear. I think there is mysrety on this incident. Inspite of all of this Trimble definietly make a huge market with SketchUp and invest money into it and expand their business all over the world.

Lastly Trimble and Google will mentain close relationship about this matter and SketchUp will continue to make a great position in the heart of all designers.



Sketchup for Solar design & analysis


Google SketchUp is an user-friendly 3D geometry modeling tool containing a real-time shadow engine that can be utilized for sun modeling & sun exposure analysis. Sketchup will facilitate to illustrate the exact position of sun and shadow over an object over the course of a day and notify at what time and where the sunlight stand outs strongest on your property. Solar professionals will be in a position to decide the preferable location for solar panels on their projects.

The sketchup can provide a rapid presentation for the customers as they can view everything in rich 3D and visualize the entire solar PV systems illustrating how the solar installation will appear & integrate on their building properly before going to onsite.



The PV system designers are also capable to manage every small detail of installation earlier, saving time and possible problems for the installers on-site.

Sketchup contains a zero length learning curve and is useful to visualize the particular portion of a structure to be visible in sun or in shadow for any part of the day or year.



Sketchup can also be utilized for designing shading overhands and realizing the suns interaction with your home. 
The sketchup is also applicable for drawing assignment. One can simply sketch a wall with a window and overhang (or an entire home), and illustrate the sun over it for due course of time.




Sketchup can generate models for shading structures as well as panel, collector, trees, solar sails, shade walls, window fins, sunspaces, greenhouses and anything that may cause shade. Sun patterns in the interior of home can also be illustrated. SketchUp can also perform solar site surveys.
