Augmented Reality Maintenance Tool

Hytrol (booth # 6605)

Summary of Innovation

The Augmented Reality Maintenance (ARM) Tool is an interactive platform that can be used to assist in the maintenance and replacement of machinery. The ARM tool interweaves actual components with virtual components on a digital device with video camera. The tool gives the user step-by-step instruction with animations and videos, showing the user how to maintain or replace a component. It highlights the areas which must be addressed in each step, and can be used to verify that the task has been completed correctly.

Innovation Statement

The ARM tool decreases the learning curve for maintenance tasks, helping to eliminate human errors by verifying each step is completed correctly.


The tool may be used by anyone who has personnel maintaining equipment through their smartphones or tablets – no extra equipment required.
