Augmented and virtual reality

Optimizing your service business with AR/VR

Augmented 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 VR-glasses. As a result, complex tasks such as assembly, maintenance, and repair are simplified by inserting useful information into the field of view.

For example, labels can be displayed on a system to clarify operating instructions for a maintenance mechanic, manufacturing and assembly processes are improved for assembly lines, and big machines 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.

Augmented reality in service and maintenance operations

    Etteplan’s unique know-how in computer vision, object recognition and other augmented reality technologies, combined with our vast expertise in technical documentation, changes the way users access information when performing maintenance and service tasks.

    AR by Etteplan, we go beyond the 'wow' factor

    Our augmented and virtual reality solutions can be used for training, troubleshooting, installation or maintenance purposes. Every solution is customized to the particular needs of each customer and internal stakeholder. Etteplan uses an open platform application that is compatible with today’s most popular ‘smart’ devices. By pointing the camera of a mobile device at a specific location, the user can see the desired 3D illustration, text or animation; receiving the desired information at any place, and at any time.
