Coverage & Analysis from the Information Feed:

Summary:  Scope AR (formerly Scope Technologies) provides the world’s most advanced augmented reality training solutions and products.  Scope AR was founded on the principal that the practical, considered application of advanced technology is the cornerstone of the next generation of advanced training tools.   They use the latest in smart devices, augmented glasses and software to provide an incredible real-time 3D overlay training solution.  Scope AR is currently working with some of the world’s leading multi-national companies and government agencies to provide custom state-of-the-art training systems, while continuing to innovate and create novel ways of helping their clients extend and expand the impact of their subject matter experts.

One of their products, Scope Remote AR, is a software tool that connects field technicians and experts to each other immediately and in real-time, over any network, using almost any device, from laptops and tablets to smartphones and glasses, all with the simplicity of augmented reality.  The application enables user support experts to view exactly what field personnel see and guide them with step-by-step augmented instructions.

Another product, Scope Instructional AR, creates custom-designed training and maintenance solutions to allow the user to see complex procedures animated directly on the equipment they are using.  By overlaying instructions and pertinent reference material directly on the systems and equipment which are being used, Scope AR brings numerous benefits to the client, including an Automated Tracking System allowing database verification of who is trained, when and to what level, and a Scope AR program highlighting specific real-time dangers directly in the vision of the user, providing information exactly when it is most needed to avoid incidents.
