Space 1 brings virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality into business processes through a flexible, multi-platform applications suite.
Compatible with most smartphones, tablets, head-mounted displays and headsets, the suite includes:
Space 1 Maintenance – cut learning times and reduce human error by providing engineers with AR support and guidance when carrying out technical tasks;
Space 1 Virtual Collaboration – enhance training and support by sharing a user’s field of vision with others in real time;
Space 1 Sales – increase sales and aid decision-making by enabling customers to interact with a product catalogue through the virtual display and manipulation of items; and
Space 1 GIS – visualise spatial data through a combination of AR and GIS data, for example by using a virtual overlay to show a field engineer the location of underground pipelines.
Default templates in all applications can be customised to meet the requirements of individual businesses. Space1 is available from OverIT.
