Design Interactive, a virtual, augmented and mixed reality development firm, and Atheer launch AUGMENTOR, powered by Atheer AiR Enterprise. The solution allows any procedure to be authored from Atheer’s web accessible portal or in the field through DI’s tools in the Microsoft HoloLens. It brings together the AUGMENTOR™ purpose-built augmented reality troubleshooting application developed for the Microsoft HoloLens by Design Interactive (DI) and Atheer's AiR Enterprise augmented reality solution for industrial enterprise customers.
AiR™ Enterprise is a breakthrough enterprise-class AR application that uses smart glasses to connect a worker's physical and digital workspaces – and provides a Web console that can be used for online step-by-step "taskflow" creation as well as secure, cloud-based data storage of those taskflows (allowing taskflow content to be accessible across the enterprise). Any employee wearing a compatible head mounted display can livestream what they see to a remote expert. The expert can guide the employee and send them relevant drawings or procedures.
The combination of these two products into AUGMENTOR allows any procedure to be authored from Atheer's web accessible portal or in the field through DI's tools in the HoloLens. AUGMENTOR complements AiR Enterprise by focusing on longer term retention of knowledge, empowering experts to author and share what they know with others at any time, from anywhere. An expert out in the field can directly author a procedure within a Microsoft HoloLens - or save information about how they solved a problem to the cloud. Any employee can then download that procedure on demand to more efficiently troubleshoot.
