Augmented Reality: HoloLens reduced with MAX maintenance time

microsoft hololens HoloLens for some time is indeed on the market and over the months, one can observe how a solution has become from an initial idea, which seems to find its place. Like any other technical product stands or falls the sense (or nonsense) with the acceptance of the developer and the correct application – and here takes some time not only HoloLens, but just the whole topic of “Augmented Reality” ride on. Now also literally, the HoloLens technique is but now also in elevators from ThyssenKrupp used.


More specifically, the ThyssenKrupp Elevator AG is now using for further digitization of the global elevator service before and during maintenance work, the HoloLens technique. In cooperation with Microsoft and the Azure Services Group from Redmond to have included the own service processes and HoloLens adapted to your needs. Result here maintenance services MAX, which is not only the second cornerstone of the partnership between ThyssenKrupp and Microsoft, but already in thousands of installations throughout the world, according to details of ThyssenKrupp. Given many well-known buildings such as among others, the One World Trade Center will be counted.


Assuming even from the bare figures, we are talking in the practical example of more than twelve million elevators carrying every day one billion people a day. 24,000 service employees of ThyssenKrupp are now to be supported technically by means of HoloLens and be able already to visualize the specific characteristics of an elevator to the actual use. HoloLens should then at any time have access to all technical information of the elevator and expert assistance via video transmission on site – all with the benefit of any time to have both hands free. Initial trials will now have also shown that the work with the support of AR hardware can be done up to four times faster.

MAX itself was started in 2015 as the first predictive maintenance solution, since thousands of plants have been installed in the pilot countries USA, Germany and Spain. then to be connected to MAX until the end of 2017 a total of 180,000 plants and growing well beyond the pilot countries also. All in all, the once interesting facts and a signal that Augmented Reality is more than just another new technology, but already part of our time today. If you look at even the purpose here, it will be interesting where the journey else is going! at ThyssenKrupp
