AR unboxing and installation guide
One of its most popular applications of AR has been setup and installation manuals. A typical AR unboxing guide provides superimposed instructions on top of a video representation of the physical product to be assembled. Augmented reality is being used to accurately instruct customers on how to properly connect any electronic device from a modem to a coffee machine.
Using AR for product and features introduction
Enterprises have also made good use of AR capabilities by providing users with an overview of their new product functionalities via visually immersive experience. Manufacturers allowed consumers to use their smartphone or tablet to get acquainted with every element on their new machine. Some manuals also includes how-to information for basic repairs and maintenance,. Today, many consumer-facing products make use of engaging AR-based user guides, which transform the initial interaction with appliances, electronic devices and consumers packaged goods into an easier, fun and improved experience.
AR for Diagnosing and Troubleshooting
The long troubleshooting process can be performed independently with the help of an intelligent, interactive visual guide that clearly explains the instructions in a step-by-step format. Troubleshooting includes a complex, non-linear process, beginning with identifying the problem, determining the correct sequence of actions based on the particular device or circumstance, communicating the solution to the customer, and testing to ensure the resolution was effective. In order to successfully manage this process, the AR user manual must be supported by mature and advanced computer vision and AI deep learning capabilities.
AR for Maintenance, Operations and Quality Instructions
Maintenance, operation and quality control instructions are being used to help operators, technicians, and quality assurance staff through the steps needed to perform a task (assemble a component, service a machine, inspect a part).
