DELIVERING BETTER UNDERSTANDINGS IN THE FIELD WITH AUGMENTED REALITY

ARDI-AR

ASSET RELATIONSHIPS & DATA INTEGRATION – AUGMENTED REALITY

Gaining better understandings about your assets has become easier.

Designed to inform field workers and technicians with the critical information they need to perform their roles, ARDI-AR consolidates, distributes, and enhances information through visualisation.

Tearing down the barriers between people and knowledge, ARDI-AR enables your team members to make more informed decisions.

ARDI-AR brings augmented reality to business and industry.

ARDI-AR makes it easy for staff to use your asset information by delivering it to them in the simplest way possible - by simply looking at the asset through their phone.

ABOUT THE APP

What is ARDI-AR?

ARDI-AR is an application that provides an enhanced virtual version of your plant and equipment, with layers of information and graphics over real-world images.

With the ARDI-AR app installed on your phone or tablet, you use your camera to view and identify assets.​

ARDI-AR overlays details that are not visible – pop-up descriptions of the equipment, as well as live information, historical trends, and documentation.

All information about your assets is delivered in a simple and ultra-convenient form, exactly where your people need it most.

Designed to provide information to those using or maintaining the equipment, the information displayed can be used within operation or maintenance processes, for scheduled inspections or more.

ALL DATA SOURCES IN ONE PLACE

ARDI-AR is designed to fit in with existing procedures and workflows, gathering the most important information into one ‘point of truth’ when you need it. This means you can access up-to-date information readily without the need for large data storage capabilities or the installation of new systems and data management plans.

how ardi-AR works

Having all your asset information secured into one place is the first step, access and convenience is what makes ARDI-AR the go-to tool for asset information in the industry.

ARDI-AR removes the physical and psychological barriers needed to access information. Its user-friendly design makes sure it is widely adopted, ensuring that your people make well-informed decisions based on up-to-date information.

ARDI-AR creates a stress-free environment, where information is no longer in multiple locations and your staff have the necessary information when and where you need it.

It is simple, by raising your phone, you have instant access to asset information, including:

  • Instrument register
  • Drawings and diagrams
  • Control System data (live and historical)
  • Maintenance system details
  • Procedures, manuals, and documentation

ORGNISATIONAL ADVANTAGES

ARDI-ar benefits

ARDI-AR is useful not only for your people in the field providing information when they need it, but also provides benefits for the organisation.

ARDI-AR can help your organisation by:

Reduce downtime

More information exactly when you need it means better decisions and faster diagnoses.​

Simplify Training

Training requirements are reduced by deploying a single system able to be used by staff with a wide range of skill levels.

Reduce costs

Saving time on tasks reduces your costs, particularly when it comes to breakdowns.

Safety and Compliance

Be assured your staff work safely and in compliance with company and legislative standards.

Increase independence

One source for all your information makes you more independent and efficient.

Minimise Reliance

With access to the latest information, reliance on specific personnel and outdated resources is reduced.

f

Make it your own

You can change and expand your ARDI-AR system easily, with new assets available immediately.

Latest Data

ARDI-AR stores only the most critical information, everything else is read directly from your existing information systems.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

UNDERSTANDING ARDI-AR

HOW DO AR MARKERS WORK IN AREAS OF DENSE INSTRUMENTATION?

In areas with multiple instrumentation or machinery, a single marker can be used to identify multiple assets. Instead of a separate marker for each asset, the single marker presents the user with a list of assets nearby which they can select from. Each item will be clearly identified by arrows, with the distance between each item also labelled.

WHAT IS AUGMENTED REALITY?

Augmented Reality (AR) is an enhanced version of the physical world that is achieved using digital visual elements, sound and other sensory stimuli delivered by technology.

ARDI-AR delivers information about assets and equipment by simply looking at an asset through a smart device.

Information can include live and historical data, manuals, specifications and safe work procedures, maintenance schedules and history, location information and relationships with other devices.

Information is clear, concise, and contextual depicting information about the asset and equipment nearby. ARDI-AR also provides alerts on faults or issues, allowing you to quality troubleshoot issues.

WHO CAN USE ARDI-AR?

Anyone can use ARDI-AR, with minimial training required.

As augmented reality is designed to give you information in the field, it is intended specifically for field technicians, operators, and maintenance staff.

ARDI-AR is easily installed on a field staff or contractors devise, whether phone or tablet, which is then used to scan the asset to reveal the critical information.

ARDI-AR ensures workers onsite are performing their roles under up-to-date procedures, with correct information about the system, and with vital feedback about their task.

WHAT ARE AR MARKERS?

An AR Marker is a distinct pattern, like a barcode, that a camera can easily recognise and process, which are visually independent of the surrounding environment. They are often basic black and white graphics that contain a unique ID. They can also be physical objects.

AR markers are used as they can be:

  • read from a distance and at wide angles
  • used to establish distance and orientation to the marker
  • quick and easy to read, enabling multiple markers to be detectable at the same time.

AR markers can be placed on instruments, machines, and systems. It is recommended to use a marker on:

  • Instruments when they are important to the process
  • Machines and systems when the parts inside are not maintained individually.
DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE NEW DIVICES TO STAFF?

ARDI-AR operates on most iOS (Apple) and Android devices and well as Window operating tablets. The ARDI-AR application is free to download from Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

Whether you have a pool of shared devices that are distributed amongst staff or users, or prefer users download the app onto their own devices, the is no requirement to purchase new devises or pay per-device licenses.

We do recommend; however, users install the app on their own device, which is a benefit as it reduces the outlay for the organisation. Most staff already have a smart phone, who are familiar with how to use it, and are comfortable with carrying it around.

If your plant or site operates within a challenging environment, including explosive atmospheres, a range of devices suitable are available. Contact us for a quote.

CAN ARDI-AR PROVIDE TUTORIALS ON COMPLEX TASKS?

Due to safety concerns, ARDI-AR is not currently designed to guide users through complex tasks with step-by-step-instructions overlaid onto their view of the asset. ARDI-AR is designed to provide the data behind the machine, with manuals, interactive checklists, and videos of the process.

Interactive tutorials are best effective when users are wearing an AR headset which allows for both hands to be free.

As ARDI-AR uses handheld devises, its safer to watch a video and then undertake the task separately. Not only does it make it hard to perform the task with one hand, but it also provides distractions which could impact on the process, the users safety and the plants performance.
