Real-time data is displayed virtually on in the spot at the real object, using the latest mixed reality technology.
Background: CSL Behring AG is a global biotherapeutics leader, specializing in the manufacture of medicines derived from human plasma. CSL Behring’s facility in Wankdorf, in the heart of the capital city Bern, generates a large amount of data on a daily basis, data that is crucial for the production of their life-saving therapies. The aim of the project was to provide employees with necessary information as quickly as possible and to make the complex production processes easier to understand.
Solution: The collected data of the system is retrieved and assigned to a digital twin in a smart AR cloud system (Azure). The Mixed Reality glasses will display the needed information directly on the corresponding object in real time. The Mixed Reality glasses are used as a completely new type of HMI.
Benefit: The application enables the employee to make faster and more accurate decisions and thereby helps to avoid errors. Persons wearing a head mounted display will have their hands free. They can thus move around more easily and work more efficiently.
