Virtual product training in augmented reality
Everybody waits with bated breath to see the newest car model. The mechanic, the one who’ll be responsible for overseeing maintenance and repairs, must know ahead of time how the car is put together. In order to share crucial knowledge, training is generally scheduled early in the process. But how can you visualize technical improvements without taking the car apart? And how can a mechanic bring home everything they’ve learned? That’s why Pon Academy had an urgent question: How can you train mechanics to work with a new car that doesn’t exist yet?
Historically, mechanics would receive classical training to prepare for new models. This training wasn’t supplemented with an augmented reality (AR) app. TinQwise Immersive developed a 3D model of the car, and an AR app for Android and iOS. Mechanics who participate in training can examine the cars, with all their technical details, from inside and out.
