How EasyJet is Using Augmented Reality

By August 1, 2014March 24th, 2020News

Augmented Reality usually refers to enhancing the world around us; a digital enhancement to what we already see.  The BT-200 AR glasses are Epson’s latest foray into this business, and they continue to have great success in the training and enterprise markets.

One of their current successes is EasyJet.  Regular airplane maintenance is critical for all airlines, but each model of plane can have its own nuances and special needs.  It’s a big problem if the available engineers and mechanics aren’t specialized in that particular model.  Don’t worry; the planes get their proper maintenance – but it takes extra time for the engineers to find the reported issues and grasp the scale of the issue (e.g. how big is a dent?), so familiarity is key.

The AR solution is to use Epson’s embedded camera for spot-reports / checks, and the mechanic / engineer can easily find the core issues thanks to an overlay or easy to view video while making repairs and doing maintenance checks.

Very interesting!  This model can easily be replicated for all kinds of complex training that requires time sensitivity.
