Electrolux Declares AR Use for Factory Maintenance
An article on VR Focus discusses Electrolux’s investment in Augmented Reality. The technology company has begun to manufacture AR smart glasses and related software at sixteen factories in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe.
The mobile application, Tempestive Reamplia, works alongside AR smart glasses to enable remote collaboration between field experts and on-site engineers. This increases the efficiency of troubleshooting by providing visual instructions without requiring a site visit. Updated instructions, technical documentation, and annotated images can also be transferred using this system.
Carsten Franke, SVP Industrial Operations at Major Appliances EMEA, is quoted to have said that using AR technology and digitising enterprises is rapidly changing the workplace, allowing for quicker and easier problem solutions, competitive advantages, and reduced costs.
The article concludes by mentioning the significant influence of AR on industry and enterprise, in sectors such as retail, automotive, construction, and design.
