Augmented Reality solutions often depend on a 3D model of the surroundings so they (1) can associate what the user is looking at with specific physical equipment (e.g., for diagnostic purposes) and (2) can generate an augmented image that can be accurately overlaid over the physical image the user sees.
Industrial automation is transforming rapidly, building on progress in IoT (connection into the Internet), image processing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and high-performance networking technology.
Modern turbine engines are complex, but may require in-person maintenance in non-factory or service depot locations, creating a need for access to comprehensive engineering information and collaboration systems wherever the work is done.
Complex products like airliners typically have bespoke (unique) designs for each plane manufactured, when you consider all of the options (seating plans, passenger entertainment systems, cabling, engine choices, instrumentation choices, etc.) so assembly and service of each plane is literally different.
