Augumenta Studio Debuts
April 25, 2017
Augumenta Studio allows developers to
quickly design AR applications for smartglass-equipped workers using
pre-built templates, libraries of control elements such as meters and
gauges, and Augumenta's virtual surface tools and gesture-control
Augumenta Studio supports application design for the Augumenta
SmartPanel application template, which was a finalist for the HERMES
AWARD 2017 presented this week at Hannover Messe. With Augumenta
SmartPanel, workers with smartglasses can see and operate virtual
control panels for machines that appear as a blank surface to others.
Augumenta Studio is used to set-up the virtual control panel, providing
highly configurable and flexible human-machine interaction for
industrial, commercial and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
Augumenta is demonstrating its applications and development tools this
week in the Team Finland Pavilion (Hall 16, Stand D10) at Hannover Messe.
The company is showing how Augumenta Studio is used to build
applications for the Augumenta SmartPanel running on the ODG R-7
smartglasses system. Additionally, the company is showing its upcoming
Augumenta SmartAlert template, which is optimized for use cases where
workers use monocular display smartglasses like the Vuzix M300.
"Augmented Reality provides manufacturing organizations with real-time
access to critical factory data and the ability to control machines and
production lines without accessing a physical control station, resulting
in shorter problem-solving times and greater shop floor efficiency,"
said Tero Aaltonen, Co-Founder and CEO of Augumenta. "Early adopters of
the Augumenta SmartPanel wanted to accelerate application development.
So we created Augumenta Studio and the new Augumenta SmartAlert to bring
rapid application delivery to more user segments."
build applications with Augumenta Studio, a developer chooses controls
and instruments from the library, defines and links data sources for
instruments and then confirms interaction commands used to operate the
controls. The application design then is transferred to the target
viewing device. For Augumenta SmartPanel applications, stereo-capable
smartglasses can display interfaces in sizes ranging from a post card to
large-screen display. Augumenta SmartAlert applications utilize the
constrained viewing field of single-eye displays to flash alerts from
data sources and provide access to simplified controls, including
virtual keypads and other control elements displayed on the palm of a
user's hand and controllable with simple gestures.
The Augumenta SmartPanel and SmartAlert application templates give
enterprise customers and developers an unprecedented level of
flexibility paired with privacy and security. Displays are completely
configurable and only an authorized smartglass user is able to view data
and controls. Displays also can contain different information and
controls based on the user's role. This is useful not just in industrial
applications but also in operating medical monitoring and diagnostic
