Production Proven Augmented Reality
Spotlight AR++ is an augmented reality software for manufacturing environments that accurately projects computer generated visual aids on real tridimensional objects. By using a regular video projector, Spotlight AR++ projects the results of measurements, data color maps, instructions, and other relevant data.
What is Spatial Augmented Reality?
Spotlight AR++ uses video mapping, which is a spatial augmented reality technique to project onto the surface of volumes by calculating the real 3D position and compensating for the uneven surfaces of real objects.
What is Spotlight AR++ for?
Show measurement results directly into parts, data color maps or any other value.
Analyze the projected values or color directly on the part, no more paper reports or screens. Information is literally at your fingertips.
Show other people what needs to be done without paper reports that can cause confusion. You can even mark issues directly into the part with confidence.
Gather your team or stake holders to review issues or design improvements.
Show step by step instructions and positions for assembly or placement, eliminating guesswork and reducing human errors.
Why Video Projectors and not AR Glasses?
Video projectors are a proven technology with decades of maturity, professional projectors are meant for 24/7 operation, accurate color, and long life, up to 20,000 hours without replacing the light source.Additionally, projectors come in all forms and sizes, from something that fits into your pocket all the way to projectors that can lit 100 feet wide. All these makes Spotlight AR++ a reliable, comfortable, solid, and versatile solution.
One or Many Projectors
Size and orientation are not a problem. Spotlight AR++ works with several projectors from a single computer, your only limitation is the graphics card and the amount of displays your computer supports. You can hook up several projectors from different directions and friendly tools like:
Quickly setup your main display and projectors with this easy tool.
Decide which information is going to be shown in each projector, or choose to overlap or hide, all this with easy-to-use tools.
Functions that help you automate your workflow without the need to repeat the process over and over.
Different Points of View with Multiple Alignments
For flexible fixtures, motion control systems or robots, Spotlight AR++ supports multiple alignments, each one representing a different point of view from the position of the part to the lens of the projector.
For example, you can place the projector in a robot and project from multiple positions or place the part on a rail or rotary stage to project into different areas of big parts. You can simply choose to project front and back of a part.
Spotlight AR++ and PolyWorks | Inspector
Spotlight AR++ runs as a plug-in for PolyWorks | Inspector, it leverages a powerful 3D user interface, hundreds of geometry and inspection tools, and a powerful scripting engine. You can use Spotlight AR++ to extend the functionality of PolyWorks, or you can use both as a full solution for applications where visual guidance is required.
Project any colormap
Project the measurements of the piece
New: Spotlight AR++ gives you the flexibility to present the information you need in steps, like the way you can prepare slides in MS PowerPoint. You can group information and customize colors, sizes, and positions. This can be used for presentations, training, collaboration, and guidance.
Spotlight AR++ is fully integrated with PolyWorks macro scripting language, now you can automate complex tasks that use to take days into simple scripts that can get the job done in a few minutes. Dozens of new functions let you customize and interact with Spotlight AR++.
