Project Concept

Mixed reality (MR) experiences designed for service technicians provide step-by-step instructions for procedures within the context of the specific, physical machine that requires service.

Delivering instructions via a mixed reality HoloLens experience makes it easy for technicians to view procedural steps while they're working without having to disengage from the machine to find and check a digital or paper manual.

This can save significant time and maximize technicians' efficiency.
