FREDERICTON (N.B.) – Starting today, users can experience Kognitiv Spark’s powerful industrial worker support tool for free by downloading the trial in the Microsoft app store. Their platform, called RemoteSpark, leverages mixed reality technology and interactive 3D intelligence to deliver significant productivity gains for industrial clients.

The platform is currently designed for the Microsoft HoloLens and empowers workers to improve maintenance and repairs using 3D content, interactive holograms, and live IoT data. Offsite subject matter experts located anywhere in the world can see what the onsite field worker sees trough the HoloLens, and together they can troubleshoot tasks or perform inspections.

This eliminates travel costs for subject matter experts, reduces equipment downtime and errors, and improves repairs and inspections.

“This is a product with a strong market need that exists today. We have something that none of our competitors have been able to replicate, especially with our level of stability,” says Kognitiv Spark’s CEO Yan Simard. “Clients often report that using the product for a single event can create savings that cover the annual licensing fee. A reliable, handsfree, secure platform that can withstand challenging environments is critical for the work that our clients do, and we designed it with this in mind.”

What sets this platform ahead of the augmented and mixed reality pack is the ability to drag and drop files into filed of view to convert to 3D holograms, as well as the ability to create and interact with digital IoT twins using a client’s existing data. The communications functionality is the most stable and robust on the market today, making it reliable under low-bandwidth or high-CPU usage conditions.

RemoteSpark is designed for industrial manufacturing, aerospace and defence, and the oil and gas sectors. The next phase of platform development will bring an AI ambient intelligence component, so an object can be recognized by the platform then deliver relevant content to the worker hen they need it.

Founded in 2016, the Kognitiv Spark team has worked closely with industry to guide developments to ensure real-world applications. Recent winners of the Microsoft IMPACT awards as well as winners of the NATO Defence Innovation Challenge, they’ve begun to earn recognition on an international stage.
