UPNA Health Sciences has worked for 3 years with iAR in Augmented Reality

The Hospital Complex of Navarra (CHN) has started a collaboration project with the Public University of Navarra (UPNA) for the use of augmented reality glasses as support for the surgical instrumentation tasks of Nursing.

On May, 3rd the first test on Hololens augmented reality glasses was carried out in the CHN General Surgical Block to facilitate the surgical instrumentation during an intervention to implant a partial hip prosthesis.

For three years now, the Faculty of Health Sciences of the UPNA has been working together with the Navarre company iAR on innovative solutions based on augmented reality in the field of Nursing.

Leticia San Martín, one of the promoters of this line of research from UPNA, highlights the commitment to expand this type of resources to Nursing, resources which have been initially emerging in the field of Medicine, and whose first results have now been qualified as “very positive”

Augmented Reality, science fiction arrives to industry

Augmented Reality, science fiction arrives to industry

The Industrial Augmented Reality (iAR) company develops industrial applications including augmented reality, allowing to save costs and time and boost the benefits of companies.

The applications are based on a simple idea: just by looking at an equipment through the mobile device or tablet, all the associated information is automatically retrieved. From this concept, we develop applications related to management and access to documentation, digital checklist, identification of components, spare parts, working orders, remote technical assistance … Our products are used in the wind sector, automotive, energy and manufacturers of machinery mainly.

The benefits are many, however, we could highlight two: the reduction of the time that the machine is stopped, by reducing the duration of maintenance operations; and on the other hand, the reduction of the movements of specialized technicians to the client’s facilities and the expenses that this entails.

First place in the II Edition of the Volkswagen Innovation Awards

First place in the II Edition of the Volkswagen Innovation Awards

The project consists of a mobile application with augmented reality that recognizes the focused electrical cabinet and immediately displays virtual labels that identify the elements of the cabinet. By selecting each label, the electrical diagrams are accessed, considerably reducing the time of interventions.

9 factories and 5 central areas of the Volkswagen brand participated in the final. The jury was composed by the person in charge of Production and Logistics of the Volkswagen brand, twelve factory managers of the Volkswagen brand, a financial director of Production, six heads of the Central area and a Communications officer.

The project has begun with a pilot test carried out in two electrical cabinets of the body workshop area, which will end in March 2016. Once demonstrated its success, the objective is to extend this system to all the electrical cabinets of the factory.
