Arvizio Announces New Updates to XR Platform to Support Augmented Reality Digital Twins
Augnanix recently posted an article reporting on AREA member Arvizio’s capabilities announcement. The provider of Augmented and Mixed Reality solutions has now installed updates that allow for the creation and support of AR digital twins. This technology can help enterprises accelerate digital transformation.
The ways in which frontline workers can benefit from AR digital twins mentioned in the article are:
- Navigating and monitoring
- Conducting assisted maintenance operations
- Reviewing complex machinery
- Planning industrial plants and facilities
- Product development
- Visualising and interpreting data (on-site and remotely)
The Arvizio XR Platform enables user to visualise digital twins at table-top or life size scale. It also supports remote 3D collaboration across XR devices such as iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, Magic Leap, and HoloLens 2. Users can also import 3D BIM, LiDAR, CAD, and photogrammetry assets for integration with Autodesk cloud services, such as Fusion 360 and BIM 360. Reality captures and 3D models acts as a “digital canvas” for arranging AR data with the digital twin. It operates as follows:
- A graphical user interface tool associates documents, images, workflow items, and IoT data with objects in the model
- Models and scans are aligned on-site, overlaying AR data on top of real-world objects
- The XR Platform interfaces on IoT data hubs or the cloud, providing integration of live IoT data with 3D objects
Jonathan Reeves, CEO at Arvizio, is quoted to have said that the pandemic has led to increased Industry 4.0 adoption in enterprises, who are “seeking innovative technologies” to improve ROI and productivity. Using their XR Platform, customers can incorporate digital twins and AR to enhance efficiency.
Key feature updates for the Arvizio XR Platform for digital twins listed in the article are:
- XR Connect: collaboration services with shared video, allowing for expert assistance and remote inspection
- Expanded device support: now includes iPhone 12 Pro, iPad Pro with LiDAR, and Oculus Quest
- Arvizio’s advanced hybrid rendering: allows visualisation of large-scale point clouds and models
- IoT data integration and custom integration services: provides customer assistance with AR and digital twin migrations
The article concludes by stating that these new capabilities will be entering Beta this month, with availability expected next month. For information on Arvizio’s website, visit here.
