Signifikant and PDS Vision, technology partners of the EU Commission funded ReCiPSS project, will demonstrate how users of whitegoods such as washing machines, can be empowered to perform maintenance and repair with augmented reality. This is being done in order to encourage more cost-effective and sustainable use of appliances.
Takeaways from the session:
– Discuss how manufacturers can increase the lifecycle of their products
– See applications that incorporate AR and service instructions that encourages self servicing of appliances
– Insights on circular economy and the role of technology and ICT platforms
The project ReCiPSS tries to solve the contradiction between the overproduction of cheap short-lived products and sustainable production with high quality long lasting products. Here,Signifikant is developing circular tools and ICT platforms that will allow data exchange to track usage and remote monitoring of Gorenje’s (the project’s white goods demonstrator) washing machines. While PDS Vision’s application is aimed at supporting Service, Maintenance and Training with visual Augmented Reality (AR) instructions that can be consumed internally and externally.
