Abstract As social interest in the use of the fourth industrial revolution technology has recently increased, various technological innovation tasks for efficient use of these technologies have been carried out and paid off in order to upgrade production technologies and improve productivity in all sectors of the domestic industry. In response, this study investigated the current VR and AR utilization status of the construction industry for design offices, contractors, maintenance companies, and service providers to derive and improve the utilization problems of the contents, platforms, networks, and devices that comprise VR and AR. As a result, the lack of professional manpower was the biggest problem for content and platforms, and in the case of networks, there are various problems among construction industry workers, and devices are the biggest problems with expensive and uncomfortable wearing. As an improvement measure, it was shown that fostering professionals was most urgent for content and platforms, networking needed network enhancement for use in wireless environments, and devices needed to be lightweight and streamlined.
