Mitchell Collaborates to Enable XR Smart Glasses Solution
Sept. 24, 2019—Mitchell has collaborated with Qualcomm Technologies to develop a proof-of-concept XR (extended reality) smart glasses solution for collision repair facilities.
The Mitchell smart glasses solution utilizes commercial smart glasses powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR Platform. The solution gives repairers a single tool to access and utilize the resources they need to enable a proper and safe repair, during the repair, without disrupting their workflow.
Through use of extended reality, repair technicians save time by operating the glasses hands-free, using voice activation to access, vehicle-specific repair procedures, within their field of vision. The solution also allows technicians to call and collaborate with other experts in real-time, right at the vehicle, and streamlines important functions such as check-in and check-out processes.
Mitchell CEO Alex Sun and Qualcomm Technologies’ Hugo Swart will discuss the solution and showcase the proof of concept at the 2019 Mitchell mPower Conference on Oct. 1.
