TOKYO, November 7, 2016 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it has developed a maintenance-support technology using augmented reality (AR) based on a three-dimensional model that enables a technician wearing smart glasses to confirm the order of the inspection on an AR display and then enter the results by voice. The technology helps reduce workload and avoid entry errors because information can be entered by voice, even in noisy environments. The system is expected to be used for a variety of maintenance work, such as inspections of water-treatment plants and building electrical systems.
