Is Augmented Reality (AR) the future of industrial maintenance? In March at the CeBIT in Hanover we presented possibilities for using AR in service and maintenance processes. The visitors could experience an industry-related scenario, supported by the Microsoft HoloLens glasses and VIOS AR.
Our demo was about the process of examining an aviation component for material deficiencies.
The component could be examined by using an Ultrasonic Measurement Device. The procedure is called Non-destructive testing (NDT) – evaluating the properties of a material or component without causing damage. Usually a technician has to look at the monitor of the device, which the Measurement Device is connected to, in order to see results. With the HoloLens there is no need to do this, which allows for more efficient work. Within the demo the technician can see suspected damage areas as well as the scan results. This way he is guided through the inspection process. Continue reading “VIOS AR: The future of industrial maintenance?”
Bitnamic develops mobile Smart Services for Industry 4.0, to improve and cheapenclassic service processes.
At CeBIT 2017 in Hannover we present our remote service solution VIOS, that allows companies to make expert knowledge available wordwide without delay.
But Bitnamic thinks one step further! At our booth we are simulating possible scenarios for the future of industrial maintenance by using augmented reality. Experience the next step of digital service processes with the Microsoft HoloLens AR-Glasses.
Visit us at the CeBIT in Hall 6, Booth A18 and experience VIOS and VIOS AR live.
On Saturday, January the 14th, Bitnamic co-hosts a Hackathon for Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality.
Together with Osnabrück’s startups Adaptvis, Forestage Technologies and Virtual Spice, we want to show how much potential there is in the Osnabrück and Weser-Ems region.
Participants and guests will get an introduction to those new technologies. They will work together closely with well-known companies like FRIMO, Testia, Anlagenbau Habeck, GiS and Salt&Pepper to create exciting proof of concepts.
In Industry 4.0, companies are always facing new challengens and they always have to (re)consider bussines opportunities in a clever way. With Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality, there are lots of exciting scenarios and use cases. The hackathon offers a unique way to connect those companies with motivated developers and minds to work closely on those use cases and scenarios together. All results will be published on GitHub!
We, the team of Bitnamic, are looking forward to this event to have a nice, friendly, collaborative and efficient day.
