New platform combines AR remote assistance with AR smart instructions.
With augmented reality (AR) technology steadily rising in profile over the past year, many companies have begun implementing the technology in various ways. Enterprise-focussed AR solutions company Scope AR have just announced its latest offering – an all-in-one AR platform for Enterprise and industrial use.
The Scope AR platform offers real-time remote assistance and access to AR-enabled guided instructions simultaneously in one application, offering a more efficient and cost-effective package for companies.
The app combines the functionality of Scope AR’s video calling application, Remote AR, with the AR content creation library, WorkLink into a single product. Scope AR say this enables unprecedented levels of support and collaboration.
“The ability for workers to connect in real-time with an expert to get the remote assistance they might need while also having access to rich, animated step-by-step AR instructions in one, unified interface truly has the potential to transform the way people work, while also saving companies valuable time, resources and significant costs,” said Scott Montgomerie, CEO and co-founder of Scope AR. “We are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in AR with products already in use by Fortune 500 companies. With our newly integrated platform, we are thrilled to address a common request we receive and offer our customers an even better AR experience.”
The company has noted several use cases for the new platform, such as supporting remote technicians encountering an unusual or complex problem they are unfamiliar with and contacting remote assistance, or giving training to employees using step-by-step AR instructions. The product will be available for Android, iOS and Windows-based systems.
A demonstration video showing how the technology works is available to view below. Scope AR will be showcasing the new AR platform at the Augmented World Expo (AWE 2018) at Booth #718. AWE 2018 will be taking place from 30th May – 1st June, 2018 in Santa Clara, California. Further news from AWE 2018 will be covered here on VRFocus.
