1. What is Mixed Reality (MR)?

According to Microsoft, Mixed reality is the next wave in computing followed by mainframes, PCs, and smartphones. Mixed reality is going mainstream for consumers and businesses. It liberates us from screen-bound experiences by offering instinctual interactions with data in our living spaces and with our friends. Online explorers, in hundreds of millions around the world, have experienced mixed reality through their handheld devices. Mobile AR offers the most mainstream mixed reality solutions today on social media. People may not even realize that the AR filters they use on Instagram are mixed reality experiences. Windows Mixed Reality takes all these user experiences to the next level with stunning holographic representations of people, high-fidelity holographic 3D models, and the real world around them.

Mixed reality is a blend of physical and digital worlds, unlocking natural and intuitive 3D human, computer, and environmental interactions. This new reality is based on advancements in computer vision, graphical processing, display technologies, input systems, and cloud computing. The application of mixed reality has gone beyond displays to include:

  1. Environmental understanding: spatial mapping and anchors.
  2. Human understanding: hand-tracking, eye-tracking, and speech input.
  3. Spatial sound.
  4. Locations and positioning in both physical and virtual spaces.
  5. Collaboration on 3D assets in mixed reality spaces.

2. Applications of Mixed Reality:

This technology has numerous applications across various industries, and its potential for transforming the way we live and work is only just beginning to be realized. Some of the exciting applications of Mixed Reality are:

  1. Entertainment and Gaming Mixed Reality provide a more immersive and interactive gaming experience. Games like Pokemon Go and Minecraft Earth use MR to create a real-world experience for users. MR is also used in theme parks, creating rides that combine physical and digital elements to create an unforgettable experience.
  2. Education and Training Mixed Reality can be used to create realistic simulations for training purposes, especially in fields such as healthcare and the military. It can also be used to enhance classroom learning by creating interactive and engaging experiences for students. For example, medical students can use MR to practice surgeries in a virtual environment before performing them on real patients.
  3. Architecture and Design Mixed Reality allows architects and designers to visualize their designs in real time, enabling them to make changes and adjustments quickly. It can also be used to create virtual walkthroughs of buildings and other structures, allowing clients to experience a design before it is built.
  4. Healthcare Mixed Reality has the potential to revolutionize healthcare by allowing doctors to perform surgeries and procedures remotely. It can also be used to provide patients with a more immersive and interactive experience during rehabilitation.
  5. Marketing and Advertising Mixed Reality can be used to create interactive and engaging advertisements, allowing customers to interact with products before making a purchase. For example, a retail store could use MR to create a virtual dressing room where customers can see how clothing looks on them before buying.
  6. Tourism and Travel Mixed Reality can be used to create virtual tours of destinations, allowing travelers to explore and experience new places without leaving their homes. For example, a museum could use MR to create a virtual exhibit that visitors can explore from anywhere in the world.

3. Our Development

By leveraging the power of MR, businesses, and organizations can create immersive and engaging experiences that capture the imagination of their audiences. One of our common goals is to help businesses unlock the full potential of this exciting technology.

In recent years, Mixed Reality has made its way into production environments, offering a range of benefits that can improve efficiency and productivity. Together, we are aiming at exploit the massive values of MR in production process, include:

  1. Design and Prototyping Mixed Reality allows designers and engineers to visualize and interact with virtual prototypes in real time. This enables them to identify potential design flaws and make changes before the product is physically built, reducing the risk of costly errors and delays. Additionally, MR can be used to create digital mockups of factory layouts, enabling engineers to optimize production lines for maximum efficiency.
  2. Maintenance and Repair Mixed Reality can be used to provide technicians with hands-free, step-by-step instructions for maintenance and repair tasks. For example, a technician wearing an MR headset could see a virtual overlay of instructions on the physical equipment they are working on, allowing them to complete the task more quickly and accurately. Additionally, MR can be used to remotely diagnose and troubleshoot equipment, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
  3. Training and Education Mixed Reality can be used to train new employees on production processes and safety procedures. By using MR, employees can gain practical experience in a safe, virtual environment before working with actual equipment. Additionally, MR can be used to provide ongoing training and support for existing employees, allowing them to stay up-to-date with the latest procedures and technologies.
  4. Quality Control Mixed Reality can be used to improve quality control by allowing operators to inspect products in real time. For example, an MR headset could display virtual overlays that highlight potential defects or areas for improvement. Additionally, MR can be used to track and analyze production data in real time, enabling operators to quickly identify and address quality issues.
  5. Collaboration and Communication Mixed Reality can be used to facilitate collaboration and communication between remote teams. By using MR, teams can collaborate on designs and projects in a shared virtual space, enabling them to work together in real time regardless of their physical location. Additionally, MR can be used to conduct virtual meetings and presentations, reducing the need for travel and improving efficiency.

Overall, Mixed Reality has the potential to revolutionize production by improving efficiency, productivity, and safety. By leveraging the power of MR, businesses, and organizations can create immersive and engaging experiences that help them stay ahead of the competition.

Mercury Solutions, Mismart, and DNFC ( Fujikin Corp’s R&D – Manufacturing center in Vietnam) are excited to announce a new project that utilizes cutting-edge technology to enable remote collaboration and instruction. The project involves the use of Hololens technology to guide and support individuals in remote locations as they work on a drone assembly project.

In the first phase of the project, Mismart and Mercury Solutions will provide real-time technical assistance to individuals located in DNFC, in Da Nang, using the Mixed Reality headset. The Hololens technology will enable these individuals to receive guidance and instruction as if they were in the same location as their collaborators.

In the second phase of the project, Fujikin will introduce the Hololens to their factory in Japan, where Vietnamese interns located in Vietnam will be able to remotely view the machinery and objects at the factory and receive online instruction using the Dynamic 365 platform. This innovative use of technology will enable the interns to receive training and instruction as if they were physically present at the factory.

This collaboration promises to revolutionize remote collaboration and instruction, making it possible for individuals located in different parts of the world to work together in real time with greater efficiency and precision. We are excited about the potential of this project and look forward to seeing the results it produces.
