One of the world famous manufacturers of agricultural machinery, Rostselmash, will introduce new products to the farmers; participating in Agritechnica-2015, at the world's most significant agricultural machinery exhibition in Hanover, 2015.
It includes the world's premieres of the ultra-productive agricultural machines, such as: the innovative combine harvester RSM 161 with a unique, gentle, ultra-efficient threshing TETRA Processor system, an updated rotary combine harvester TORUM, being the latest generation with an impressive potential for seasonal harvesting, an improved high speed forage harvester of RSM 140x series, and a new powerful high cross tractor VERSATILE DeltaTrack 550; as well as a number of other technical solutions for modern agribusiness.
How to show the advantages of technical units of combines at the exhibition with a reference to particular models?
How to demonstrate operation of certain unique systems inside the body of a combine on the stand?
And if there are several of these and each has its own characteristics?
The augmented reality technology is a perfect tool for solving these tasks.
The sticky markers are placed onto the certain spots of the combine harvesters’ bodies, the stands with tablets, with the application, developed by us, are next to them. The stand staff, using the application, and presenting the harvesters, are able to demonstrate the unique system of the latest generation in 3D.
The application includes 3 language versions —- Russian, English, and German. By pointing the tablet at the marker an animated 3D model of the selected fragment with concise text commentary appears on the screen. The models have been thoroughly designed and optimized for demonstration on mobile devices in real time.
Thus, one can see 11 unique units in the 3 combine harvesters.
Apart from the exhibition Rostselmash will use this application in the educational process in the Academy of the company (Rostov-on-Don). Every year; from October to May, the company runs training courses for technicians (machinery service maintenance specialists) and sales manager.
The courses focus maximum attention on the study of the design features of the equipment, as well as its competitive advantages. The augmented reality will help the company in the preparation of high-class specialists.
Two 3D video clips and a brief presentation of the company have been created for this exhibition.
