Mixed Reality is not the Innovation of Tomorrow.
It's already exists with Hololens TODAY
HoloLens is a pair of mixed reality glasses in which 3D holograms are projected in a real space, opening up whole new dimensions. We have been working on the solution, developing and researching with HoloLens for several years. LUCA was awarded for this solution by EUROLOGISTICS in the category "Product of the Year" in 2016.
The technical fascination
The HoloLens is the absolutely perfectly developed device that captures the real space in 3D with 6 cameras, calculates the virtual 3D objects in real time and projects them precisely onto the stereo glasses. The audio output, speech recognition and connection to the LUCA-Server round off the features of the glasses. The virtual objects are felt very real in the real room with Pick-by-Hololens . The enormous computer power guarantees very fluid movement of the virtual objects.
Use for production and logistics
Currently, the weight and dimensions of the HoloLens are not yet suitable for continuous use in production and warehouses as Pick-by-Hololens . However, the direction of development is fascinating and correct. We will stay tuned!
Google Glass or HoloLens
Compared to the HoloLens, the Google Glass is nothing more than a small monitor on a pair of glasses. With the small built-in camera, Google Glass can also take good photos. However, the camera is not suitable for room recognition. The Google Glass and HoloLens are two different devices that cannot be directly compared. Google Glass only shows the information on a mini-monitor. HoloLens shows the information in a real 3D space. Goolge glass is small and light, thus easier for the user to accept. However, the use of data glasses in logistics is fundamentally wrong from our point of view. The employee in logistics needs information that can be better presented to him in another way.
Product of the Year 2016
As one of the first developers in Europe, LUCA was already allowed to test and programme the HoloLens in 2015. The result of our developments was a high-ranking award as "Product of the Year 2016" in logistics, transport and production in Poland. We are very proud of this and congratulate our Polish developers.
Product of the year 2016 in logistics, transport and production for LUCA Logistic Solutions with Pick-by-HoloLens.
The excellent picking system is based on a 3D projection of objects and information that were displayed as holograms via the picking compartments in a real room. Picking acknowledgement was then done by voice or scanner.
