Get Started with IoT & Augmented Reality


Industry 4.0 (aka the Fourth Industrial Revolution) has been sparked by global technological trends which enable the convergence of physical-digital systems, in turn causing massive transformations in the way manufacturers create, service and operate their new smart, connected products.

LEAP Australia is proud to partner with world-leaders PTC and ANSYS who are at the forefront of these disruptive technological trends; bringing together traditional manufacturing and design tools such as CAD/BIM, data management and physics-based simulations, & connecting physical assets through the Internet of Things to enable true end-to-end product lifecycle management and the use of digital twins.

Data Management

The Internet of Things (IoT) enables insights into product performance, usage and customer experience that were not previously possible.  Real time access to usage data provides companies with feedback that improves their products at every level – from initial design and manufacture to delivery and service to end of life management and iterative design improvements. The ability to fully understand not only the performance but also how a product is consumed by the end user facilitates better quality in-life service and transforms a simple ‘thing’ that leaves the factory into a service and ongoing relationship with customers over the lifecycle of the product and beyond.

Augmented Reality

While Augmented Reality (AR) was popularised through the recent Pokemon Go phenomenon, the applications for industry are more far reaching. Computer models and simulation results can be visualised through AR during the design stage, allowing for virtual prototypes to be examined in the physical world. IoT data can be visualised on a working product providing insight into internal conditions without the need for monitors, gauges or dials and entire factories can be overlayed with data to provide real time information about performance, materials and stock levels and much more.  Sales and marketing teams can even use AR to demonstrate products to potential buyers without physical stock and examine various configurations or variations of a product on the fly.

BAE Systems utilises AR with the HoloLens to empower their service technicians to perform their jobs more safely and efficiently. Check it out in the video below.
