If a machine breaks down, maintenance is due or an error occurs, there is usually a manual or documentation to identify and solve the problem. But how and where to find the right section in extensive documentation and instructions? If the appropriate documents are found, they are usually not available at the deployment site.

Mixed reality glasses make maintenance processes easier

Mixed reality is taking on this challenge. Errors, maintenance or problems can be detected with a mixed reality application, and a suitable solution can be virtually provided directly at the deployment site. Hands and movements are not restricted by holding a documentation, a smartphone or tablet.

In addition to displaying visual data and objects, mixed reality solutions allow for cross-locational communication with other stakeholders such as engineers, technicians or colleagues. Through the camera of the glasses, they can follow the processes, intervene or make recommendations, leaving the hands of the on-site employee free for implementation.
