BrainPad

AR Manual on Microsoft HoloLens

BrainPad is Augmented Reality framework that provides a set of functionalities and process logic that simplifies industrial processes and improves efficiency by integrating IoT and Big Data systems, filtered from Context Computing platform logics and geolocation services.

I worked on the Brainpad's module dedicated to manuals. The aim was speeding up procedures and providing a tool for new workers training. The demo of the module was shown, for the first time, at the 2016 Augmented World Expo.

Microsoft HoloLens is the first self-contained, holographic computer, enabling you to engage with your digital content and interact with holograms in the world around you. The Bloom and Airtap gestures are the two core interactions, the lowest level of spatial input data. They form the foundation for a variety of possible user actions.

It was decided to give the interface a certain degree of physicality in order to integrate holograms into the working environment.

Two of the main benefits for workers is the possibility to always carry with them the necessary information and have their hands free for the whole duration of the procedure

The application refers to a content management system that allows the administration of information and multimedia contents that make up the HoloLens manual.

After the demo was released, the technology was implemented for Avio Aero, General Electrics Aviation division, and tested at the Brindisi plants. The demo has also been delivered for other smart glasses, such as Epson Moverio BT300.
