In our work with defense customers funded by SBIR contracts, we find that AR/VR experiences that merely put "sticky notes" or "check lists" on equipment are not as effective as experiences that can track individual steps of the worker activity and provide corresponding feedback. We enable the system to figure out and alert a technician when she makes a mistake. This allows such systems to expand beyond training use cases and assist workers become more efficient in day-to-day work.
We enable training a worker in half the time for half the cost, and one-third the instructor time. Our platform improves first time yields (FTY) by 10%, and reduces manual assembly related quality issues by 60%, resulting in significantly reduction of maintenance and sustainment costs.
