Augmented and Virtual Reality

AR is a technology that allows for information about the environment and its objects to be overlaid by media output like animations, graphics, sound, video or GPS data, while looking at it through applications like smart phones, tablets and glasses.
As a result, complex tasks such as assembly, maintenance, and surgery are simplified by inserting useful information into the field of view, so that, for example:

  • Labels can be displayed on parts of a system to clarify operating instructions for a mechanic who is performing maintenance on the system.
  • Manufacturing and assembly processes are improved for assembly lines.
  • Big machines, which are difficult to maintain because of the multiple layers or structures they have, are much easier to maintain as AR permits service engineers to look through the machine as if it was with x-ray, pointing them to the problem right away.

Furthermore, Etteplan also creates Virtual Reality solutions in case you are looking for ways to educate employees and customers on your products in a virtual environment.
