Why Augmented Reality
As machinery such as medical instruments, power generation equipment and
transportation become more and more technologically advanced, AR becomes
more valuable as a tool to service & repair this complex equipment. Using
AR technology is more cost effective since it allows even a person with
rudimentary knowledge of service & repair to follow the step-by-step process
that’s laid out in the software, which guides the technician through the
procedure and saves as much as 34% in time by placing the information right
in front of the their eyes.
It cuts down on travel time since specialists
don’t have to leave their offices, and can now conduct servicing operations
right from their desks, supervising numerous junior or client-side technicians
via “See-What-I-See” video streaming capability. The most functional application
of AR is one that works using smart glasses technology, since service
professionals have access to all the information they need while having both hands
free to do the repair work.
