Still a bit unsure of what mixed-reality is and what it can do for you? In video below Aviad Almagor, the Director of the Mixed Reality Program at Trimble talks Trimble mixed reality. He covers the journey Trimble have taken so far and the benefits of mixed reality. He also expands on what we can expect from Trimble in the future.
According to Nathan Pugh, Business Area Director Mining Solutions for Trimble, the easy solutions for achieving efficiencies have been achieved. Companies now need to connect their different silos in the mining environment and value chain to optimise their operations and achieve efficiencies.
Nathan details how the Microsoft HoloLens is able to help companies do that by visualising data.
Last year Trimble announced that they were working with Microsoft to develop a new generation of tools, integrated with the HoloLens holographic platform on Windows 10.
At MINExpo 2016 Trimble announced its new solution especially designed for mining, Trimble Connected Mine™ Visual Intelligence model.
This optional model enables 3D visualisation of Trimble Connected Mine data with support for mixed-reality technology. This includes the Microsoft HoloLens, which provides visual collaboration of mine spatial data.
The Microsoft HoloLens is a head-mounted, holographic computer that provides a mixed-reality experience. When used in conjunction with Trimble Connected Mine Visual Intelligence it enables mining professionals to visualise and interface with high-definition holograms of the mine. This in turn improves collaboration and communication.
Trimble Connected Mine also includes a range of reports: material, product delay, budget tracking. As well as KPI dashboards that can be personalised for fast deployment.
