Automotive Industry Challenges

Human error causes nearly 80 to 90% of all industrial mishappenings. It leads to loss of lives, property and environmental damage, regulatory violations, unplanned downtime and damaged reputation

As per reports, industrial manufacturers face approx. 800 hours of annual unplanned outages costing them an estimated $50 billion annually. Equipment failure due to improper maintenance is the cause of 42 % of this unplanned downtime which results in excessive maintenance, repair, and equipment replacement.

To remain competitive, companies need to operate safely, reliably and efficiently. For that, a highly trained and competent workforce is required. Most workers are practical learners, acquiring 70% of their skills and knowledge from experiential learning. Robust On-the-Job Training (OJT) programs are expected to solve these challenges, but they are very expensive, logistically difficult and involve risks.

Augmented Reality Solutions

Augmented Reality technology brings you efficient and cost-effective psychophysics-based solutions to solve your problems. Using AR-Powered Tablets, plant equipment is simulated inside industrial classrooms to train employees. On-the-Job Assistance using Augmented reality (AR) technology through Tablets or Wearables enables digital overlays over the real environment with visual instruction and interactive guidance.

Experiential Learning

Augmented Reality Training Simulators deliver immersive, scenario-based, experiential learning. This enables engineers and technicians to learn critical skills, test and evaluate themselves to handle high risk equipment and tools without even entering the Process Plant or Shop-Floor but inside an immersive, safe and zero-consequence virtual environment.

Gamified

AR education makes learning fun! Well-designed games motivate and imbue players with clear goals, a sense of reward and fulfilment, encouraging them to persist until those goals are achieved. Applying motivational power to non-game contexts is Gamification which makes learning interesting and easier than ever.

Quick Results

AR transforms your employees into competent, confident, inheriting decades of knowledge and experience in a short duration saving years of training time. Latest study indicates that AR implementation has immediately increased the Operations and Maintenance efficiencies by 40-65% and in some cases up to 90%.

Our AR Solutions for Automotive

With more than a decade of experience, we offer customized end to end AR solutions for
both manufacturers and the end customers.

Design & Prototype:

Designing and building a new prototype is often a costly and time-consuming process in automotive manufacturing. Our AR-powered Tablet Solutions eliminate physical mock-ups by allowing engineers to have real-time collaborative design reviews on the same life-sized Photorealistic Virtual 3D model from any remote location.

Assembly & Maintenance - Assistance:

On-the-Job Assembly & Maintenance Assistance using AR-Powered Wearables enable digital overlays on top of the real environment with visual instruction and interactive guidance. These Wearables make critical information available, in front of your eyes, right inside the plant, right on top of the equipment which helps you to pick the right spares and tools along with live guidance aided by step-by-step audio-visual instructions overlaid on top of the real equipment. You can also have live production status from OPC interface or equipment data and history from SAP overlaid on the real environment leading to smarter, error-free and well-informed decisions.

Assembly & Maintenance - Training:

Maintenance Training Simulators (AR-MTS) using AR powered Tablets, augments the Immersive Digital-Twin of the sophisticated automobile systems right inside a classroom training environment. AR-MTS enables virtual hands-on experience to efficiently troubleshoot and repair the sensitive machinery. Training includes picking the right parts and tools aided by step-by-step instructions from Standard Maintenance Procedures (SMP) along with internal views.

AR-MTS enables safe & effective training of Shop Floor Assembly activities and High-risk maintenance activities whether it is Predetermined, Proactive maintenance such as Predictive & Preventive maintenance or Reactive such as Emergency & Corrective maintenance and permit systems such as Hot Work, Confined space, Work at Heights and Heavy lifts.

HSE & Emergency Response - Assistance:

The effective execution of Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is considerably affected by various physiological & psychological Human factors. Possible overlooking of procedures and Inefficient time management at mission critical scenes is intolerable. Our ERP Assistance AR-Module using Wearables can Maximize ERP effectiveness by speeding up the team’s response time through smart-instructions using voice, text and infographics which ensures no overlooking of procedures.

Self-Service & Remote Assist Customer Apps:

Our AR Self-Servicing guide Mobile app allows customers to do basic troubleshooting and repair their vehicles. It also enables Remote Expert interactive video support for not easily accessible facilities as personnel cannot be mobilized instantly saving time and effort.

Virtual Showroom:

Our Virtual Showroom solutions help car dealerships positively influence customers, where they can virtually configure and experience all variants in the augmented immersive environment through AR-powered Tablets

Employee performance is evaluated through precise data collection, KPIs and dashboards developed with proven Brain-Science Techniques and Artificial Intelligence-based analyses. We understand your challenges and have the expertise to deploy AR tailored to your needs
