Cloud-based EON-XR Platform enables non-technical users to easily develop and distribute EON-XR knowledge applications with contextual knowledge provided by AI and IoT
IRVINE, CA, April 3, 2017 – EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, announces the release of new features for the EON EON-XR Platform that enhance key functionality and improves on Augmented and Virtual Reality application creation for non-technical users: IoT integration, enhanced features for Enterprise customers, enhanced multi-user support, and features to support spatial tracking for Microsoft’s Hololens and Google Tango.
This additional functionality improves upon the man machine interface as data and control of remote devices can be pushed to EON Reality’s EON-XR Platform to enable visualization or operation depending on application. Enterprise offerings include Enterprise Virtual Training (EVT) functionality, which allows for monitored virtual training by an instructor integrated with backend enterprise systems, and an enterprise version of the EON-XR platform designed for the needs of corporations. EON-XR also includes support for next generation tracking technologies which power markerless Augmented Reality. This enables EON-XR to position Augmented Reality objects in the middle of the room or add annotations to real world objects.
The EON EON-XR Platform has also add-on options for Artificial Intelligence and Geo-positioning to create unique knowledge transfer applications that illuminate the world with contextual information or Virtual Reality applications that let students and trainees learn faster, remember longer, and decide better.
“It’s our goal at EON Reality to make Virtual reality and Augmented Reality app development easy for non-technical users,” said Mats Johansson, CEO of EON Reality. “Based on our 18 years of VR and simulation experience along with the in-depth understanding of customer needs we have developed a new version of EON EON-XR Platform that captures the key functionalities required by Enterprise and Academic users. This allows trainers, teachers and segment matter experts to develop EON-XR apps themselves in an easy and efficient way.”
The cloud based EON EON-XR Platform enables users to develop, run, manage, access, store, host, and distribute EON-XR applications without the complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure associated with developing an Augmented or Virtual Reality app.
Applications developed using the EON-XR platform provide an efficient man-machine knowledge transfer interface through the smart cooperation of users, AI, cloud computing, and the internet of things. Segment Application Support is built into EON-XR to address the specific needs across various industries including aerospace, education, edutainment, energy, government, manufacturing, medical, real estate, retail, security, sports and tourism.
Hardware agnostic AR and VR Publishing supports more than 30 systems allowing applications to scale from “Phone to Dome.” EON-XR content can be privately or publicly published on tablets, smart phones (iOS, Android), VR Mobile Devices (Google Cardboard, Zeiss ONE, Samsung VR Gear, Google Tango, etc.), AR Glasses (ODG, Epson, HoloLens, etc.) and other EON Reality Immersive Products.
“In order to increase knowledge transfer efficiency and productivity we firmly believe that the combination of man and machine outperform either working alone,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. “Augmented and Virtual Reality is a powerful knowledge transfer medium as it delivers the visual information at the right time and in the ideal format significantly reducing the time needed to acquire knowledge. We have purposefully designed the new EON EON-XR platform’s features to strengthen the connection between man and machines and leveraging the knowledge provided by AI and IoT enabled devices. The EON EON-XR Platform also uses AR as a visual interface for IoT, builds AR 3D annotations connected with physical objects, and uses Artificial Intelligence for faster generation of contextual EON-XR instructions.”
EON Reality’s new EON-XR Platform components make Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality app development easy for non-technical users.
