Inspection Using Augmented Reality

PTC has added Step Check to its Vuforia augmented reality solution to simplify visual inspections in manufacturing. This guides users step by step through the inspection tasks with context-sensitive work instructions. The instructions are displayed on the physical product to be inspected. The tool also detects improper assembly, missing or misaligned parts and similar errors. Thanks to color-coded graphics that Step Check displays in real time on the part or product in question, employees can see at a glance whether it passed the test step. In addition, the tool automatically documents the test results and creates dashboards to analyze the tests carried out.
