Last week we wrote about a test of a new tool called Augmented Reality – a digitally improved reality with layers of information added to a 3D image of the engine. The test was carried out by MAN on an auxiliary engine on Petunia Seaways, and now MAN sent a video showing how the tool works. While Second Engineer Stefan Börgesson loosens a bolt on the auxiliary engine of Petunia Seaways you can see how he is getting accurate instructions from the 3D image of the engine and the tool through his digital glasses.
“It is an awesome technology. When developed to a higher level, it will merge the physical and the digital tools and make it much easier to give engineers proper instructions, says Jacob Petersen, Project Manager, Technical Organisation.
