Epson and Scope Technologies: Visual repair instructions
Fixing a complex pump on site can be a challenge for a technician. Juggling tools while holding a bulky repair manual wastes time. Instead, an application being developed by Epson and Scope Technologies will allow the mechanic to look at the pump, and get visual instructions on what parts to remove and how to replace them safely. This application is also built around the Moverio BT-100. The glasses use a built-in camera to provide instructions and animated diagrams to the wearer, which are overlaid directly onto the person's field of view as he or she goes about completing the task. Computer CAD models that are fed into a content management system are used to provide instructions for the unit.
