Re’flekt Introduces The First Operating System for Enterprise Augmented Reality
Bosch CAP training for Automotive Industry is the first vertical-specific solution based on the new Operating System
Built by Bosch — After sales suite for HoloLens 2, iOS and Android for the Automotive sector based on the REFLEKT ONE Operating System
Proven by Users — Bosch CAP solutions are applied in training centers for new and innovative training methods as well as workshop use cases which improve daily repair jobs and avoid mistakes
Selected by Microsoft — RE’FLEKT and Bosch are the exclusive HoloLens 2 enterprise partners at IAA
Munich/San Francisco, September 11th, 2019. REFLEKT ONE, the Operating System for Enterprise Augmented Reality (AR), lets companies and ecosystem partners benefit from vertical-specific solutions solving Industry typical problems with AR. Bosch CAP training suite is the AR solution entirely focused on training scenarios in the Automotive Industry.
The Operating System Defines a New Category of Enterprise Ar
The Operating System for Enterprise AR is platform, device and tracking agnostic and integrates with leading Industry software such as Siemens PLM Teamcenter and Cortona Rapid Manual. It is built with REFLEKT ONE, the solid AR platform used in 100+ implementations and global roll-outs.
Manufacturers in the various sectors—Automotive, Transportation, Machinery, Medical, Utilities—are facing different challenges in maintenance, operations and training of machinery and equipment. One size fit all is not the solution. The solution is to solve the Industry specific problems with a modular future-proof approach.
Most existing AR software neither provides vertical-specific applications nor lets it enterprises and system integrators build own solutions. Vendor-focused, closed ecosystems bind companies to one software system without the ability to integrate existing or future enterprise software. For the first time, enterprises have the option to choose the future-proof way. The REFLEKT ONE Operating System for Enterprise AR democratizes the use of vertical-specific solutions.
Companies as well as ecosystem partners can choose the ideal solution—instant start with REFLEKT ONE Essentials, vertical-specific solution, or building an own solution.
“Think about how Windows builds the foundation for software with essential applications and the possibility to install specific programs for your business. REFLEKT ONE provides the operating system for Enterprise AR with a modular framework, APIs and SDKs as well as essential applications,” explains Wolfgang Stelzle, CEO of RE’FLEKT. “We enable our customers and ecosystem partners to simplify maintenance, operations and training. With REFLEKT ONE, anyone can become an expert.”
Bosch Cap Training Suite Applied In Training Centers and for Technician Education
The Bosch Common Augmented Reality Platform (CAP) is the AR suite focusing entirely on improving knowledge transfer in the Automotive Industry. Automotive OEMs and suppliers benefit from a solution that enables to easily create and update AR scenarios for vehicle advancements as they happen, allowing workshop trainees to stay updated and engaged with the latest solution and supporting the service technician while working on the vehicle.
The interactive nature of AR training solutions has proven to optimize the quality and time of trainings as well as to reduce the respective costs significantly. The CAP training suite supports a “Trainer Mode” where the instructor can collectively share AR trainings--locally or remotely--so that all training participants can interact with a single real-world object with the same 3D content displayed across multiple devices simultaneously.
Training with Bosch CAP helps trainees understand new and complex products and technologies and by this empowers mechanics to work more efficiently with fewer errors during repair and maintenance tasks. It further makes the business more agile as changes and new information are easily integrated into training courses and reaches the workshop faster.
“ By using RFLEKT ONE as the base for our CAP platform we have been able to focus on features which will bring the technician a direct benefit – e.g. superimposing components of a dynamic wiring diagram at the vehicle to eliminate transfer of information from different sources”, says Juergen Lumera, AR Product Manager at Bosch. As part of this approach we have used our industry knowledge to create a vertical-dedicated solution platform."
