Remote Inspection Technologies: Here’s Everything you Should Know About It

4 Novembre 2020

There is a whole new brand of technologies where drones, robotic components and climbers are becoming the new normal: we are speaking about remote inspection technologies, and its implementation and mix with augmented reality tech.

Remote inspection technologies are being updated constantly, contextually with modern digital transformation which is involving this tech and the entire industrial sector.

That is why many societies have started to adopt and experiment new forms of remote inspection technologies in their factories and businesses.

For those who are still wondering why so many companies are interested in this tech, the answer is very simple: remote inspection technologies are safer, less intrusive than other forms of inspection, and even cheaper, especially in the long run.

Remote Inspection Technologies: Here's Everything you Should Know About It

Remote Inspection Technologies: Its PROs

First of all, remote inspection technologies are way less expensive than many other technologies and survey methods.

They are also very safe if compared to traditional inspection technologies. Specifically, we can sum up those pros in: 

  • general improvement of inspections and surveys;
  • survey time reduction with real time streaming (empowered by AR tech);
  • survey cost reduction;
  • no need of entering in hazardous inspection areas such as toxic or heigh locations;
  • risk reduction for inspectors and technicians;
  • environment impact reduction.

Augmented Reality: Its PROs

As we already mentioned in the aforementioned list, augmented reality tech has a role in the empowerment of remote inspection technologies.

Probably, the most self-explanatory example of this merge is video streaming with AR tech while using performing a remote  inspection. 

Empowered by live video streaming, remote inspection technologies change completely because the images broadcasted in real time are being enhanced by augmented reality

For those who do not know what augmented reality is and how it works, they should know that this is an interactive technology based on the computer-generated images superimposed on the video streamed in that moment. 

These merged techs create a formidable solution for any kind of remote inspection.

In this way, any survey performed with it is enhanced (not only the reality!) by targeting the issues and visualizing it, popping-up schemes and guides directly on the streaming video, in order to execute the operations needed to perform the optimal inspection.

Remote inspection technologies empowered with AR tech work on a ‘See-What-I -See’ system. In short, whatever the user or the machine is watching at that moment, other people and remote experts located anywhere can watch it too as if they were there.

In this case, your personnel may receive help from any expert available for remote support which will guide them step by step. 

Therefore, for future similar surveys, AR tutorials may also be available once you decide to record and store any operation or instructional needed for the most delicate piece of machinery and strumentations located in your factory or business.

These kinds of tutorials are extremely intuitive and easy to access on different devices if you use the 4GB local storage included in the Kiber offer, and they may be used anytime you need it in stand-alone mode.

Remote Inspection Technologies, Augmented Reality And Kiber

To perform and upgrade your business with the aforementioned processes, you need the proper right tech able to perform the best, safer and cheapest inspection. In this case, Kiber 3 kit is the perfect example to present to you.

Thanks to its technology and features, anyone among your workforce will be able to conduct an AR based remote inspection and while guided and helped step by step he or she will solve any eventual present issue on your machinery or any other industrial asset.
