Recently Viu More, a spin-off of Impala, was founded. This is a service provider that develops industrial applications that make use of Augmented and Virtual Reality.
Viu More applies Augmented and Virtual Reality in operational activities such as maintenance, production, quality assurance, …. with the goal of increasing the efficiency and profitability of companies.
Founders Dirk Roelens and Benny Lauwers: “Augmented and Virtual Reality becomes more and more popular, today mostly games and marketing applications. However, the technology is less known in industry.”
Virtual Reality, creating a virtual world, is relatively familiar to most people, but this is less the case for Augmented Reality.
With Augmented Reality, virtual objects are added to the real world. This projection can then be seen using so-called smart devices, such as a tablet, smartphone or smart-glass.
The founders got this idea during a brainstorming around the concept of ‘Factory of the Future’ and ‘the industrial revolution 4.0’.
Interactive training applications are currently being offered. These can be generic, but also specifically tailored to the customer.
Through the application of the innovative technologies of Augmented and Virtual Reality, we can drastically shorten the learning time, limit errors considerably and increase the efficiency of the training.
