Technology has always been a game-changer. From smart elevators to e cloud management the elevator industry has been on the phase of continuous up-gradation of technology. And now the elevator industry is all set for a breakthrough into the world of Virtual Reality. With a smarter solution for improving and resolving technical issues, along with improved safety; the industry is looking forward to a more advanced diagnostic methodology- virtual reality diagnostics. Using multiple sensors, advanced optics, and a holographic processing system that melds seamlessly with the environment. The innovation is believed to help in improving technical efficiency and reduce the repair time with its remote assistance.
Identifying where the problem is no more a serious task with holographic devices as they give us a virtual walk through the system and help us what is to be repaired and replaced. Devices like a virtual reality headset called HoloLens by Microsoft allow the mechanic to stick around an ascent motor without rising or sloping on a precipitous shaft on tens of stories. The square region of the device becomes a window that allows the technician to observe objects that can be seen but cannot be touched. Then the user may blast the engine and study its particular components, or make it huge and walk through it until it finds what needs to be replaced, reordered, or tweaked. This in turn helps technicians to be well equipped and resolve the issues in a fraction of seconds.
Virtual reality can change the way mechanics perform elevator repairs, allowing them to diagnose a problem without having to risk their safety by climbing several floors or hanging from a lift shift. They even have access to real-time expert assistance to get any sorts of technical and expert opinions even on-site at any time. The idea of virtual reality diagnostics has helped in empowering service technicians to work smart and safe without spending hours finding where the real problem is.
