AI078I - Reality Zone: Volumetric Capture Space for Remote Operation and Collaboration

Programming a machine usually requires a specialized programmer to be next to the machine. Often this programming is done with a highly trained specialist that implements ladder-logic or explicitly written code. While programs can be deployed onto machines remotely, it is dangerous for a programmer to make changes to an industrial machine without seeing the effect in real life. Our system uses a volumetric capture space to create a live 3D model of everything within the space. A remote operator can then view this space in 3D from a desktop application. In addition to the live 3D model, the system generates a 3D user interface for programming and configuring machines within the space in a spatially coherent way. Local operators can interact with the system using mobile phones which track the machine in augmented reality. Any number of local operators can interact with a remote operator to simultaneously program and configure the machine.
