A step into the future: Remote Testing through augmented-reality technology
30 . Nov . 2020

In the current "new normal" times, KEMA Labs (CESI’s Testing, Inspection and Certification Division) is committed to offer even more cutting-edge services that allow clients to conduct testing campaigns without moving from wherever they are, saving budgets and taking care of their employees’ health and safety. 

In this respect, KEMA Labs announces the start of our revolutionary Remote L@b experience, which consists of:  

  • Local assembling of the test objects by qualified experts remotely guided by the client engineers
  • Test Execution with real-time data shared
  • Qualified experts fully available to support in case of unexpected tasks

With this initiative, Augmented Reality, digitalization, remote assistance and online video tools become part of a new way for testing at KEMA Labs. Through the adoption of interactive glasses that provide an untethered mixed reality device with apps and solutions that enhance collaboration, our customers can now connect with us via web to become active part of the testing process directly from anywhere they are. 

Furthermore, the augmented reality offers the opportunity to increase interactivity, due to presence of specific commands, such as head-tracking, that allow the user to bring application focus to whatever element they are perceiving. Moreover, KEMA Labs has already taken advantage of professional video technology that generates a continuous video stream from different angles and perspectives, so that customers can remotely witness their tests in our platforms located all over the world.

Indeed, this new testing solution enables quality control and business continuity by collaborating closely between the KEMA Labs, utilities, and the manufacturer without compromising on quality. In addition, remote testing offers a set of advantages, allowing quality control and business continuity, enabling flexibility like involving experts from remote places or on short notice, and increasing efficiency and time management by avoiding traveling around the world.

With this initiative, at KEMA Labs augmented-reality, digitalization, remote assistance and online video tools become part of a new way for testing. If you are interested to see how Remote L@b experience works, watch the video at this link
