Release the nut and remove the bolt.
Network Equipment Installation Manufacturing
safe remote training manufacturing
Equipment Inspection, Repair and Maintenance
Use real-time video to virtually survey equipment and annotate on screen to highlight damage or areas that need attention. Remotely talk users through routine maintenance or repairs. Use predictive capabilities in CareAR Insight to determine when a part will need routine maintenance or replacement.
Network Equipment Installation and Recalibration
Use remote guidance to help teams install specialized machinery. Untrained teams can use a smartphone or other device to show remote experts what they are seeing in real time. Experts can highlight certain parts and give step-by-step instructions using anchored circles, arrows, and text.
Safe Remote Training
Use CareAR Instruct to fill skill gaps and transfer knowledge. More experienced techs can remotely upskill junior techs. Document and store annotations made throughout the repair process so field techs can access this knowledge in the future. Capture institutional knowledge from technicians before they retire.

Technologies

 

Augmented Reality

The ability to project additional digital information in real time within a person’s field of vision. Annotation tools can place 3D objects, arrows, circles, and text-based instructions that remain anchored in place over a live video stream, even when the device moves.

Augmented Intelligence

AI enhances the CareAR augmented reality experience with machine learning for accurate 3D object detection. CareAR also uses AI for state detection for dynamic instructional guidance influenced by motion. AI predictive analytics can identify probability of part failure to focus attention and guide sourcing for part replacement.

Service Experience Management

Service experience management is the discipline of transforming customer and employee service experiences within digital interactions to increase business value across the organization.
