AUGMENTOR™ Releases AR Mobile Authoring Feature
Improving Maintenance Training
Previously, firms may have hesitated to adopt an augmented reality training solution. These firms assumed adopting augmented reality required a significant hardware expenditure and expert software developers to deploy. In direct response to the need for a lower cost option, Design Interactive announces the addition of Mobile Authoring to their AUGMENTOR™ augmented reality maintenance and repair software. For the first time, firms can use mobile devices to create augmented reality procedures without the need for expensive hardware equipment or a software developer. Using the AUGMENTOR™ platform, procedures and training modules can be shared across and between
Decreasing the Cost of AR Software Solutions
AUGMENTOR™’s newest feature eliminates the need for expert software developers and expensive hardware expenditures to create spatialized augmented reality procedures and training modules. Previously, a firm would have required devices like the Microsoft HoloLens to create and spatialize each step, picture or video in the field. Now, a learning and development expert or any authorized technician can use the mobile devices they already have and use every day.
A technician or learning and development expert can rapidly create, edit and save procedures directly from their mobile device in field. Imagine a firm that has a need to create training for wheel on inspection of air disc brakes or tire analysis and needs to source examples of corrosion, cracks or wear. Technicians can now capture pictures or short how to videos using their phone or tablet, add them to an existing procedure and save to the cloud. Now across the enterprise all technicians have the most up to date maintenance and repair content, with the examples of what is occurring in the field to assist them. Learning and development experts can use this same process to add real, relevant and recent content to their training modules as well, using nothing more than the phone in their pocket.
