A maintenance app with integrated AR function

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

Comos Mobile Worker (photo) is a new software application (app) for mobile data management with integrated augmented reality (AR) functionalities. It was developed in cooperation with Augmensys GmbH, a specialist in the field of mobile data management and AR. For the fast and safe maintenance of process plants, the Comos Mobile Worker app visualizes and processes all required data — from enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, engineering data and also live data from the process control system — in an easy-to-use interface. Thanks to a direct connection to Comos engineering software, all engineering data can be linked to enable a holistic view of the plant. Changes or annotations can be securely transferred through the bidirectional exchange between the systems. The integration of location data also supports on-site navigation. — Siemens AG, Munich, Germany
