Optinvent worked on the co-development with CERTH and UWOM of custom application on the smart glasses for UC1.
Additionally, the company is involved in Use Case 6 (UC6): “Mixed Reality and ML Supported Maintenance and Fault Prediction for IoT-based critical infrastructure” led by PPC. Optinvent set the conditions to scan QR-code for an embedded camera (Smartphone of on Smart glasses) at given distance and select the QR-code size and position on the server rack to have quick and reliable results. The company worked on the co-development with CERTH of custom application on the smart glasses for UC6 to set repair instructions for a SFP defective hardware module as a remote maintenance service using ORA-2 smart glasses.
