Arvizio Advances Augmented Reality Digital Twins For Industry 4.0
Today, AREA member Arvizio announced new features for the support and development of Augmented Reality digital twins for the acceleration of Industry 4.0 digital transformation for enterprises. The technology guides front line workers in monitoring and navigating industrial work by running assisted maintenance operations, planning industrial facilities, and evaluating complex machinery.
Aspects of industrial work that AR digital twins improve include:
- Product development
- Customer visualisation
- Remote work
The Arvizio XR Platform allows digital twins to be visualised at either table-top or life-size level. It further supports remote 3D collaboration via an expansive variety of XR devices such as:
- Magic Leap
- HoloLens 2
- Android tablets and phones
Users can import a range of 3D CAD, LiDAR, BIM, and photogrammetry assets. Autodesk cloud services such as Fusion 360 and BIM 360 can also be integrated seamlessly with the technology. These reality captures or 3D models are essentially a digital canvas for utilising the digital twin with AR data. The user can visualise documents, images, IoT data, and workflow items with objects via a graphical interface tool. The AR data can then overlay models and scans onto real-world objects on site. Arvizio’s Platform interfaces to IoT data hubs as well as popular cloud, enabling integration and association of live IoT data with 3D object models, creating an operational digital twin.
Jonathan Reeves, CEO of Arvizio, is quoted to have said that COVID-19 has functioned as a catalyst for Industry 4.0 enterprise adoption, as businesses are looking for innovative technologies to improve ROI and productivity. AR and digital twins can be seamlessly incorporated for Arvizio’s customers to ensure better processes and increased efficiency.
