Many vendors in the Augmented Reality space today provide platforms that promise to support technicians with AR enabled procedures for service and maintenance also in the automotive sector. But few do really offer the technical features that are required to deal with the complexities of the real world.
The majority of the platforms use planar images to trigger the AR contents. On the other hand, one of the key requirements of any enterprise class AR maintenance solution is the capability to deal with real systems and parts. Indeed, not always engines or mechanical parts can be identified or tracked by means of 2D images. Thanks to AR-media powerful tracking methods, the AR-media Dealer 2.0 solution provides the functionalities that are needed to identify and track 3D parts with the required flexibility, while at the same time enabling the access to step-by-step instructions and information relevant for diagnostics.
The solution is the outcome of the joint effort of Inglobe Technologies, a leading Augmented Reality Developer, and Lynx International. The platform that enables AR information for diagnostic and maintenance purposes is thought for Tablets and Smartglasses (Epson Moverio) and has the flexibility to extend the support to other devices as well. Thanks to a unique Mixed Reality feature, the platform can be used in association also with Virtual Reality glasses, like Samsung Gear, in low-cost blended AR/VR Training experiences.
