Leveraging Existing Technical Publication Content in an AR World

Organizations are eager to take advantage of technological advances in Augmented Reality (AR) and head-mounted displays. But they want to leverage the technical content they’ve built up over time. We’ll show you two ways to marry classical tech pubs with these new technologies.
The first approach shows a system that automatically pulls content from a repository, in its original source (S100D, DITA, etc.), and formats it on the fly for a head-mounted display, such as Vuzix or Realwear. It requires minimal labor to make legacy content available in a hands-free, voice-driven system for just-in-time reference in the shop or field.
The second approach will show how Creo Illustrate can be used to create life-like, 3D animations to demonstrate service or maintenance procedures via Augmented Reality. With our system, animation sequences can be easily synced with the text elements of existing service procedure documents to produce rich AR experiences to guide technicians through complex tasks.
