Arvizio, a provider of augmented and mixed reality (AR/MR) solutions for real time collaboration and visualization, has recently announced new capabilities for the creation and advanced support of augmented reality digital twins to help enterprise companies accelerate their digital transformation strategies. Arvizio states that AR digital twins can help frontline workers navigate and monitor the industrial world to conduct assisted maintenance operations, review complex machinery, and plan industrial plants and facilities.
The company’s AR digital twins are aimed at improving planning, inspections, maintenance, and product development by giving customers the ability to visualize and interpret AR data both on-site and remotely. The Arvizio XR Platform enables visualization of digital twins at table-top scale or life size and supports remote 3D collaboration across a range of XR devices including HoloLens 2, Magic Leap, iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets.
Users can import a variety of 3D BIM, CAD, LiDAR and photogrammetry assets and take advantage of the integration of Arvizio’s XR platform with Autodesk cloud services, including BIM 360 and Fusion 360. These 3D models or reality captures serve as a digital canvas for instrumentation of the digital twin with augmented reality data. A graphical user interface tool allows users to associate IoT data, documents, images and workflow items with objects in the model. Models and scans can then be aligned on-site to overlay real-world objects with AR data. Arvizio’s XR Platform interfaces to cloud or on premise IoT data hubs offering the ability to integrate and associate live IoT data with objects in 3D models to create an operational digital twin.
“The 2020 pandemic is creating an acceleration of enterprise adoption of Industry 4.0 initiatives and, they [enterprises] are seeking innovative technologies to address and enhance their productivity and ROI,” said Jonathan Reeves, CEO at Arvizio. “Our customers can seamlessly incorporate AR and digital twins, further enhanced by infrastructure improvements such as 5G and private 5G deployments, to improve efficiency and ensure that processes are better serviced, analyzed and maintained in real-time.”
Arvizio’s XR platform for digital twins delivers key feature updates including:
- Arvizio’s advanced hybrid rendering for visualization of large-scale models and point clouds;
- XR Connect collaboration services with “see what I see” video for remote inspection and expert assistance;
- IoT data integration and custom integration services to assist customers with digital twin and augmented reality migrations;
- Expanded device support now including Oculus Quest, iPhone 12 Pro and iPad Pro with LiDAR.
The new capabilities will be entering Beta in December with general availability planned for January 2021. Customers interested in participating in Beta testing can contact Arvizio at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on Arvizio’s XR Platform please visit the company’s website.
