Skoda is testing a new augmented reality (AR) device known as HoloLens glasses to assist with production line maintenance. The glasses provide enhanced assistance for technicians, facilitates remote training, and reduces the likelihood of errors. 

The groundbreaking technology allows manuals, maintenance checklists and other documents to be projected as holographic images directly into the user’s immediate field of vision while working. The wearer’s point of view can be shared in real time, allowing for remote diagnostics and supervision, and communication with colleagues who are not on site.

The HoloLens consists of the actual glasses, which make holograms visible, and a camera-projector unit. When a task has been completed, the technician ticks it off with a hand movement in the hologram.

The programme is being developed as part of a pilot project led by Skoda’s AUTO FabLab, the company’s research department.

This AR technology reduces the likelihood of making a mistake and expedites maintenance processes. HoloLens glasses also make repair work much easier as technicians are no longer encumbered with bulky technical manuals.
