About The Customer
Huawei is a Chinese multinational networking, telecommunications equipment, and services company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong. It is the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer in the world.
The Challenge

The project presented a series of technical and organizational challenges to the partners. First, the team members collaborating on the project were located in different regions of the world (US, Europe and China) and all development and testing had to be performed remotely.

Huawei required that the application rely entirely on 3D Object Tracking. Finally, the solution had to work outdoors, in highly variable climatic and lighting conditions in which the SUN2000 inverters are usually installed.

The Solution

The AR experience was created rapidly based on a detailed storyboard and using the HyperIndustry platform, an Experience Management System for Industry 4.0. The platform compiles all the necessary content and interactive modules into native mobile applications for use on Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.

First the technician can choose either English or Mandarin instructions. The AR experience starts when the technician points the camera of the mobile device on which the application is running at the inverter. The target is automatically recognized, and a list of procedures available for the model appears on the screen. The procedures may be assigned by the maintenance manager to one or more technicians, or they can be initiated entirely by the engineer in the field.

this allows field technicians to independently perform technical procedures by executing all required steps. 

Data Collected
Production Efficiency, Process Procedure
Operational Impact
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
    The use of Augmented Reality has allowed Huawei to make understanding procedures faster and less ambiguous, reducing the cognitive load for the operator. Consequently, the average execution time of the procedures could decrease.
  • [Cost Reduction - Operation]
    Reduced the need for training and avoiding errors during the performance of tasks, which led to significant cost reduction, compared to traditional methods of delivering documentation.
