Hursley, UK - 24 Apr 2013: IBM Unveils Prototype That Will Put 'Smart Mobility' Into MRO

Engineers go on sites and may require additional technical supports from colleagues stationed in the command center in the office.

Studies have shown that remote support is much more efficient if on-site and remote engineers can share a visual representation of the site workspace and the on-site engineer's actions. To date this has been accomplished, and only in part, by on-site engineers using hand-held cameras, mounted head-gear or specialist glasses.
The new system - which is based on ombination of augmented reality and robotics - provides the supervisor with complete visual independence and a more stable video image; on-site engineers are able to work with greater freedom or, in the case of those with specialist glasses, freed from the tiring need to re-focus their eyes.
