Digitization of information
On-site work efficiency
Information visualization and browsing
Remote instruction using xR
By annotating (registering tags with related data) on the 360° panoramic photo of the entire existing plant, the Viewer visualizes the correlation between each item of equipment and component.
Since all information in the plant can be accessed visually and quickly, it enables practitioners who maintain vast sites to greatly improve the efficiency of their operation and maintenance work.
The Viewer can recognize each facility of a plant with 3D information, combined with 360° panoramic photographs and 3D shape models (3D models generated from 3D scans), enabling the survey of current conditions on a PC in the office. In addition, a major feature of this system is that semantic segmentation (an AI technology that divides the image area) enables automatic extraction of pipes, which are said to number hundreds of thousands in a plant, and simplifies ”spatial data construction work,” which has been a major barrier to the introduction of digital twins.
