How smart glasses extend reality right before your eyes

HoloLens augmented reality glasses integrate virtual objects such as texts, visuals, or videos in the “real world environment” and extend the physical world by enriching it with additional information. At thyssenkrupp Marine Systems we are already using the HoloLens in submarine construction. "What we are seeing here is the beginning of a revolution in how ships and submarines will be built in the future," Senior Project Engineer (PLF) at thyssenkrupp Marine Systems tells us.

Augmented reality in submarine construction

For each submarine, well over 50,000 welded parts have to be spatially positioned during the construction process. Conventionally, this requires hundreds of 2D drawing sheets as design documents. However, when working with augmented reality (AR), this is no longer necessary. Marking, assembly and inspection of the objects is done by virtual overlay.

Digital underwater communication in maritime shipbuilding

In recent years, many efficient transmission methods have been developed for mobile communications. Electromagnetic waves for wireless data transmission now enable large bandwidths and data rates of several GBit per second in this area - even over long distances. Digital underwater communication is an exception.
