Accurate data for engineering disposition with AI-enabled inspection in Augmented Reality

Trusted by the leading players

Spector helps technicians create accurate quality records in AR and validate correctness with AI.

In aerospace, quality is non-negotiable. When nonconformance is identified, the burden of defect reporting, engineering disposition, repair, and reinspection causes delay and creates excessive inventory.
We developed Spector, the platform that allows to capture accurate location of the defect on a part in Augmented Reality together with the picture and other characteristics such as type, size, and part number. This helps to reduce cycle time due to higher accuracy and clarity of inspection data, real-time tracking status defect, and faster workflow facilitated by automatic contextual access to repair limits and instructions. Machine Learning helps to detect the defects and validate correctness of the final assembly.

"If I can replace drawing a grid on the 30–40-inch pipe prior to thickness scanning with the digital grid in augmented reality, then I've saved myself a ton of headache."

"When a problem [on a part] happens, we spend hours and hours translating that into some kind of a report to show what the root cause is and how to fix it. You are on the verge of something really awesome for aerospace!"

BENEFITS

BENEFITS

Reduced cycle time

  • Higher accuracy of the inspection data with the defect location captured unambiguously on the 3D model of the inspected part and pictures and videos enabling engineering disposition without requesting additional data
  • Higher transparency of the inspection and repair status supported by the real-time picture of all unresolved defects shared between the shop floor and engineering
  • Faster inspection and repair workflows due to the availability of the repair limits, instructions, and acceptance criteria contextual on the markers

Increased quality

  • Allowing technician to validate the decision with the help of Machine Learning algorithm reduces the risk of overprocessing or vice versa — missing the defect and ensures higher consistency of the quality control process
PROCESS

PROCESS

Inspect

Flag the issue with the marker in Augmented Reality and document findings by attaching digital notes and pictures

Resolve

Receive location-specific repair instruction on the shop floor, analyze digital records with engineering in complex cases

Automate

Detect and classify defects automatically with Machine Learning algorithms
FEATURES

FEATURES

AR headset brings new powerful sensors on the shop floor

Spatial awareness, one of the core capabilities of the AR headset, helps connecting digital with physical distributing technical information to the point of use

Marker coordinates in space are generated automatically. This provides the repair crew not only accurate defect location but also measurements of the size, area, and distance to other objects.

Pictures, videos, notes, and historical maintenance data are linked to the marker enabling stress-free engineering disposition. Availability of consistent historical data supports more sound trend analysis.

Depending on its location marker provides access to the relevant repair instructions and historical data. It becomes a spatial quality record storing pictures, notes, and sensor readings over time.

The algorithm helps to detect and classify surface defects while upon completing the repair the correctness is again confirmed via the automated system.
