To provide professional support for installation and maintenance work, cablex uses augmented reality (AR). The purpose of the application is to provide the user with all the information needed to perform their tasks in context-sensitive and user-friendly AR glasses.
Context-sensitive means that the information is displayed directly on the real object with direct spatial and semantic reference. This includes, for example, a live display of the voltage applied to cable harnesses, or the installation information for a switch. The amount of information and its graphic arrangement are designed to optimise efficiency for the respective action.
A binocular optical see-through head-mounted holographic display is used as the AR medium. The medium (HoloLens Version 2) wirelessly accesses the central data server (the dbA² NG platform) of the building.
The BIM data of a maintenance object, for example a switch cabinet in a tunnel cross passage, enables the HoloLens to display each individual maintenance step precisely above the associated real component. For example, the exact start and destination socket of a patch cable are holographically highlighted. Job data and documentation on a standardised, central server are made available to the user on the HoloLens.
Our Partner in the development of augmented reality solutions is Holo-Light GmbH in Munich.
