OTTAWA— Arvizio has introduced Arvizio Instructor, a product leveraging AR to guide workers through complex task-oriented workflows combined with remote expert assistance to technicians for operational, maintenance, repair and training scenarios across industries including datacenter, telecoms, manufacturing and energy industries.

Difficulties with travel and a global shortage of skilled workers has created enormous challenges for organizations. According to the company, Arvizio Instructor and 3D digital twins can assist technicians with step-by-step instructions to guide the repair, installation, or maintenance of equipment.

Arvizio stated that users will benefit from authored workflows which can be shared by users within an organization’s QR code or model-based alignment with the real world. Additionally, the company stated that users will benefit from the AR content including 3D models, videos, images, documents, and annotations, remote expert collaboration with “see what I see” video and remote mark-ups.

“Demand for AR guided solutions is exploding due to limitations on travel due to Covid and a critical shortage of skilled experts,” said Jonathan Reeves, CEO of Arvizio in a statement.

“With Arvizio Instructor we provide a hands-free, AR directed experience for on-site work with digital twins and intelligent AR overlays. The ability to combine 3D models, interactive annotations with on-demand remote expert collaboration provides a state-of-the-art solution for use across industries.”

Arvizio Instructor is comprised of the Arvizio Instructor Authoring App which is a PC-based application used to create guided workflows. It also includes Arvizio Instructor AR App which is an application designed for HoloLens 2 and other AR devices. Finally, it includes the Arivizio Remote Expert App which is a PC or web-based too used by remote experts to assist field workers.

According to the company, Arvizio Instructor was designed with the intention of providing the technician or operator a real-time set of instructions that clearly indicate the actions to be taken at each step. Arvizio Instructor can be used in maintenance, installation, equipment upgrades or learning scenarios and as a replacement for paper-based instruction manuals with augmentations and detailed media that overlay the scene.

In addition to guided workflows, Arvizio Instructor provides real-time collaboration allowing field workers and remote experts to share information using video, audio, markups, and other tools to assist the field worker.
