Tradiebot WorxAR App Uses Augmented Reality to Help Car Mechanics

Emergent Insight:
An added benefit of AR adoption is the shrinking need for printed manuals. This is true of the Tradiebot AR app for collision repair technicians as reported by arpost.co. When thick and heavy manuals aren’t needed because the same information is presented digitally and in context over the actual vehicle the company wins – and the environment wins.

For car mechanics, diagnosing a problem takes a lot of dirty works under ramps. But thanks to augmented reality, they will be able to find the defective part and decide on the best way to fix a car faster and easier. This is possible thanks to the WorxAR app developed by Australian company Tradiebot.

WorxAR Augmented Reality App – Overlaying Car Schemes over Vehicles

With this app, even enthusiast DIYers will be able to perform simple troubleshooting work with ease. For example, they can access the digital service manual of the car while working on their car. Instead of stopping at every step to check the instructions, they see the information overlaid onto the car itself.

However, professional car mechanics will experience the true value of WorxAR augmented reality app. They will receive relevant information adapted to the precise context of the job they are doing. Also, they will be able to overlay the scheme of the vehicle onto the car. This will help them assess the true amount of damage and make the best choice.

Therefore, they can opt between repairing a part, ordering a new one or keeping it. Depending on the choice, the app will suggest further actions via voice assistance.

A Game Changer in the Car Repair Industry

The launch of the app at AAAA/ Collision Repair Expo in Melbourne created a lot of hype. Beside visitors who were thrilled to test the augmented reality apps, professionals shared their views.

“This is the next evolution in how information is offered and a real boost to our industry that is struggling to maintain an upskilled workforce. This technology will allow the upskill of future technicians whilst also providing knowledge to technicians in digital format,” Kevin Woolerton, Director of Marketing at PPG.

For Mario Dimoski, the founder of Tradiebot, the new augmented reality app will be “a game changer”. He believes that WorxAR will transform not only car repair work, but also employee training for this job, as well as regular service and maintenance activities.
