"Moving the World of IoT" is the motto embraced by Munich IoT pioneer Device Insight and helping bolster the guiding theme for HANNOVER MESSE 2018, "Integrated Industry - Connect & Collaborate". Visitors to the fair can see for themselves what this involves at the KUKA stand, where Device Insight, together with its partner connyun, is showcasing how technicians in production or plant buildings can link up with experts using smart glasses and tablets.
Machine and plant data is recorded via smart glasses and live-streamed to experts who can then provide speedy, specific and practical assistance for complex maintenance work and even faults - without having to be there in person. The experts can observe the situation "through the eyes" of the on-site technician. They can then send back images and edited screenshots from the live stream to help guide technicians through their work. Audiovisual remote support will help maintenance personnel resolve a lot of problems themselves and save specialists from time-consuming and expensive travel.
