Automotive Industry Challenges

Right information at the right moment is invaluable in crucial decision making for the High-Risk industries like Chemicals and Oil & Gas. Human errors cause nearly 80 to 90% of all industrial mishappenings and unplanned downtime which affects employees, customers and the company’s financial health.

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.

Mixed Reality Solutions

With Mixed-Reality (MR) Holographic Goggles, the digital and physical worlds meet to create new interactive environments where their data from connected devices and Sensors can coexist to create Digital-Intelligence. MR simultaneously tracks Plant environment/equipment and the technician’s physical relationship to that space to provide Context-Sensitive information readily available in front of their eyes.

Digital Intelligence

MR uses depth-sensors to track and recognize the real world objects without the need of QR codes or any physical tags. 3D-Spatial infographics are holographically overlaid directly on top of the physical equipment parts, right inside the real factory environment. Hands free user interaction is enabled through Artificial-Intelligence (AI) powered Hand Gesture Recognition and Voice-Control using Natural Language Processing. Collaborating multiple IoT connected MR devices inside a shared work space opens up endless possibilities.

On-the-Job & Remote Assistance

Mixed-Reality delivers immersive, scenario-based, experiential learning. Engineers and Technicians can be guided through step-by-step audiovisual instructions inside the Process Plant or Shop-Floor. This Over-the-shoulder coaching minimizes the shortage of skilled labor by enabling efficient and error-free operations support and reduces call out times for maintenance through Remote-Assistance.

Quick Results

MR 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 MR Solutions for Automotive

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

Design & Prototype:

Designing and building a new prototype is often a costly and time-consuming process in automotive manufacturing. Our MR 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.

Production Line - Assistance:

Production-Line Supervisor Assistance using MR technology enables digital overlays on top of the real environment with visual instruction and interactive guidance. These Holographic MR Goggles make critical information available, in front of your eyes, right inside the plant, right on top of the 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 during regular operations and also during execution of critical work permit systems such as Hot Work, Confined space, Work at Heights and Heavy lifts.

Assembly & Maintenance - Assistance:

On-the-Job Maintenance Assistance using MR technology, helps you to efficiently troubleshoot and repair the sensitive machinery and also ensures safe execution of High-risk maintenance activities whether it is Predetermined, Proactive maintenance such as Predictive & Preventive maintenance or Reactive such as Emergency & Corrective maintenance

MR Goggles provide real time assistance to pick the right spares and tools along with live guidance aided by step-by-step audio-visual instructions holographically overlaid on top of the real equipment with internal views.

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 MR-Module 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.

Remote Expert - Assistance:

Remote Expert interactive video support using MR-Goggles, opens up new possibilities for not easily accessible facilities as personnel cannot be mobilized instantly.

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 unique challenges and have the expertise to deploy MR solutions tailored to your needs.
