BMW Motorrad’s only motorcycle factory outside Germany, the BMW Group unit in Manaus, adopted the use of augmented reality (AR) glasses for improved training and remote assistance.

With this technology, still in the implementation phase, the BMW Group hopes to anticipate the needs and follow the international plans of “iFactory” – whose pillars are digital, environment and efficiency.

Training on manufacturing new designs and internal processes through augmented reality should be integrated into the factory schedule from November 2022.

According to BMW, “The glasses allow real motorcycle components to be overlaid with 3D scale models, so that concepts and production processes can be shared and evaluated easily and economically.”

In this way, the technology allows training to take place without a concrete example, in order to anticipate future projects.

remote support

Another goal of the project is remote, real-time and mutual support in solving problems and doubts about production, directly with support from Germany.

Without Augmented Reality (AR), a typical solution to a problem or question requires a photo or video recording, followed by sharing and explaining the details.

With the use of glasses, the user of the equipment has “the freedom to present the situation from his point of view, in real time and with his free hands to express as clearly as possible”.
