Complex product design, processing, and assembly at Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies can be challenging due to the dependency on traditional communications means that are either bound to a computer screen or printed out on paper. The lack of contextual information can result in confusion, miscommunication, inefficiency, quality issues, and rework. Assembly, collaboration, and visual inspection using augmented reality (AR) to overlay graphical computer information onto the real world will simplify tasks, aid in efficiency, and enhance mistake proofing. Applications for this technology include work aids, enhanced design collaboration, improved training techniques, assisted logistics, and remote engineering support.
