The new projected augmented reality system will be further developed and commercialized through the recently launched VTT’s spinoff Delta Cygni Labs.

The new system enables experts to provide technical support remotely for the operation, maintenance, and repair of complex equipment in aerospace, energy, transport, machinery and other industries.

Instead of travelling to the equipment the remote expert can project instructions for the on-site personnel, directly on to the equipment being serviced. For the remote expert, it is as easy as pointing at the equipment with a remote laser pointer. Instructions projected directly on to the work area can be seen simultaneously by several on-site personnel without the need to wear glasses or other devices or use displays. The system also helps to shorten equipment downtime by leveraging expert knowledge without delay, while saving on travel costs.
