AR Spatial Computing Links Workers to Experts

Aug. 11, 2020
Manifest 2.0 allows workers to capture and share knowledge in a simple, consistent, scalable way, accessing expertise and promoting collaboration.

TAQTILE, an industrial enterprise software developer, released Manifest 2.0, an end-to-end spatial computing solution that allows production workers to capture and sharing of knowledge in a simple, consistent, scalable way. Manifest 2.0 is Taqtile’s first release for HoloLens 2, Magic Leap 1, and iPad, and offers features that will assist teams to access and leverage work instruction. 

“Our modern industrial ecosystem is being stressed in a way that would have been hard to predict a year ago, and it is glaringly evident that vulnerability to disruption is pervasive,” said Taqtile CEO, Dirck Schou. “What is needed are tools designed specifically to enable and empower front line workers … Now, with the release of Manifest 2.0 we take, 'Everyone is an Expert' to new heights by enabling workers to connect with experts whenever and wherever they need, easily creating workgroups that enable teams to work together more efficiently.”

New features available in Manifest 2.0 are Expert Connect and Working Together: Expert Connect simplifies communication between users via a browser or Mixed Reality headset. In addition to real-time chat, users can now initiate a call directly from a job step and leverage audio and video for one-to-one calls with the ability to share photos, videos, PDFs, or jobs with others.

The ability to connect with the right expert is supported through an internal contact list that automatically sorts relevant users, starting with the original author of the job and recent operators, to connect users with the best expert available.

Working Together allows a user to share a planned team procedure, or an operator to reassign a step to another operator, on the fly. Working Together permits multiple operators to collaborate on a job by creating a team and dividing up the work, either through assignments or by self-assigning steps. All team members can watch the job progress through each step and view notes left by other operators. Job assignments allow an operator to invite another operator, even if they are in different locations, to take over so no one task goes undone.

Manifest 2.0 also introduces the new 3D Model Manager allowing for easier 3D-model set-up and configuration. Additional updates and improvements available include a new 3D application keyboard for quicker input, integrated map functionalities, additional language support, various polish and performance enhancements throughout all platforms, and general UI improvements.

Manifest 2.0 currently supports HoloLens 1, HoloLens 2, Magic Leap One and iPadOS.
