The interaction between the HoloLens and i40-Portal works the same way as with other mobile devices - but the results of visualization, interaction and communication are much better.
In the following short videos we have recorded some sequences from the perspective of the data glasses. Due to the head movement of the wearer, the shots are not completely free of jitter, we ask for your understanding.
The i40-Portal app is called from the main selection using the so-called Airtap gesture.
The user can adjust the size and position of the application window according to his needs. The window remains at the selected position in the room, even if the viewer leaves the room.
The communication with the engineer at the other end of the connection takes place via camera and microphone of the HoloLens.
As soon as needed, image information, videos etc. are imported by the engineer. The respective objects appear in a separate window.
In order to be able to mark certain areas in the technician's field of vision, it is possible to make screenshots on which the necessary hints can be drawn.
In case of bad data connections, the conversation can be continued via a built-in chat. The engineer can enter his questions and possible answers at the same time. The technician then selects the correct answer without having to type it in.
