Augmented Reality: a complete solution for the industrial field

The Control Fair will once again take place at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre, May 5-8.

Join us at FARO’s booth (Hall 3, Booth 3404) where we’ll demonstrate a workstation that contains a FARO Edge measuring arm that has been enriched with Augmented Reality software, Metaio Engineer.

The FARO and Metaio systems are perfectly suited for each other, especially in the context of quality control applications in the industrial field.

Different industries, including the automotive and mechanical engineering sectors, can benefit from Augmented Reality. The technology enriches a user’s view of a real assembly part with superimposed 3D computer-aided design (CAD) models to make all the following possible on a see-through device (e.g., tablet PC, head-mounted display, etc.): quick visual comparisons, assembly checks, identify errors, and detect deviations.

The new release of Metaio Engineer provides built-in support for FARO measuring arms. All the necessary features are factory-set and ready to use, from calibration to other functions that support your daily tasks.

These are the basic steps to set up an Augmented Reality system based on the FARO Edge measuring arm:

  1. Mount the industry camera with available adapters onto the grip of the measuring arm. 2. Calibrate the camera and spatial relation between the camera and the measuring arm. 3. Determine the position of the arm in relation to the subject being analyzed 4. Visualize a superimposed CAD model onto an existing model, part or product. 5. Compare planned vs. actual state measurements.
