The Oculenz ARwear can facilitate and accelerate the manufacturing or assembly processes at a factory. Project managers can monitor work progress in real time through AR markers on equipment. The Oculenz sensors can be set to identify non-conforming products in an assembly line, making their removal obvious to an employee. The Oculenz can compare and verify a component by superimposing it over a perfect sample so that deviations may be easily identified and corrected.
While the sight of an employee carrying around a laptop on a job site is familiar, there are drawbacks, which include the employee must use both hands to hold, balance and use the laptop. The Oculenz solution provides a hands-free environment, where the employee’s hands and body are free to engage in the repair or inspection activity, without the burden of holding on to a laptop. With the Oculenz solution the employee gets the same information as on a laptop, but provided to the employee in a much more desirable visual and audio experience.
The Oculenz provides a method to enhance safety like showing a user the location of a shut-off valve, or which turbine engine is connected to which control cabinet. It also shows hidden dangers, such as pressure vessels behind a wall or potential fire hazards. For safety training, it puts a virtual piece of equipment in the trainees’ while use media is superimposed over the physical world. Oculenz ARwear combines the effectiveness of visualizing real tools for training, with the helpfulness of additional sight and sound information designed to enhance the learning experience.
The Oculenz IAR solution combines elements of Safety Helmet, Eye Protection, and Computing. Industrial Software which previously required workers to carry a laptop, can now see the same information on the Oculenz screen, leaving their hand free for work and safety. The Oculenz IAR also features object recognition, computer graphics, artificial intelligence, and human-computer interaction. The Oculenz solution also presents information available to pre-programmed scripts to reduce and simplify the user's decisions, for instance, in a quality assurance program. The Oculenz also provides a worker with real-time assembly guidance, assembly training, and assembly simulation, design information.
Oculenz provides the best Augmented Reality platform available for Data Visualization “ARDV”. ARDV is viewed by many as a modern equivalent of visual communication. It involves the creation and study of the visual representation of data, typically in an Augmented Reality presentation. Oculenz ARDV allows visual access to huge amounts of data in easily digestible visuals displayed on the ARwear lenses. The Oculenz ARwear provides easy to interpret 3D images of charts, graphs and tables.
The Oculenz BIM technology helps many different industries, including architecture, engineering, plumbing, electrical, HVAC and construction with 3D images of a building, room or equipment shown as it will look like in its final state. This helps avoid mistakes in size and placement while providing a method to ensure the final result looks as it was originally envisioned. Also, since it is 3D you can see from any angle or viewpoint.
An on-the-site technician can use the Oculenz ARwear to figure out the problems on site more quickly and safely as they get familiar with the site layout, machine structures, zooming in and out to learn how it all fits together, and each part can be labeled in virtuality, so that, in one instance, cables and connections are overlaid on the real parts so a user understand the entirety of the job.
Now an employee can “see” the item in 3D and be able to “pull it apart” to understand it configuration or “walk through” a space such as a floating Oil Platform or Pressure Vessel. Ocutrx AR technology gives entirely real psychological and physical experience and helps get authentic virtual experience that can be implemented in real life. Or, as equipment becomes more complicated, technicians may not have the knowledge to fix problems, and those with the expertise are often hours or days away. Here, the Oculenz provides tutorials as well as a step-by-step repair process.
An employee can visually synthesize additional information such as the identity of components, complex sequences, and textual data for easy understanding. The Service Industry Oculenz solution has plug-ins and connectors so it can replace a laptop display when used with automobile diagnostics or displaying related information about an unfamiliar piece of equipment to a technician instead of searching it in a repair manual.
“They show up for the beautiful visualization, but they stay for the insight. So, what you want is to get people ‘addicted’ to the data by making it interactive, making it fun, and allowing them to find things on their own.”
―Eric Rynerson, Director of Analytics, Tableau
“There is a magic in graphs. The proﬁle of a curve reveals in a ﬂash a whole situation — the life history of an epidemic, a panic, or an era of prosperity. The curve informs the mind, awakens the imagination, convinces.”
