Augmented reality goggles replacing paper and rulers
Budapest-based AerinX develops an augmented reality-based system, which promises to make an external inspection and related maintenance operations of aeroplanes and other aircraft simpler, faster and more reliable. This can solve one of the most serious problems of the industry, since currently external inspection of aircraft is conducted manually, using manual tools.
Maintenance engineers literally use rulers to measure and felt tip pens to mark skin damages. On top of that, maintenance specialist has to flick through a thousand pages-long, paper-based technical documentation, when they are defining the seriousness of external damages.
“Presenting at the MRO Americas can open the gates for AerinX to the North-American market. Players of the aircraft maintenance industry are eagerly looking for opportunities provided by digitalization and innovative technologies”Antal Bence Kiss, co-founder and CEO of AerinX
Shorty after securing a VC founding round at the end of last year, AerinX signed a strategic partnership agreement with Aeroplex of Central Europe which is one of the largest aircraft maintenance companies in Central and Eastern Europe, in the beginning of 2019. There is a growing international interest in the company and its technology, owing to which the firm is conducting negotiations with the largest aircraft manufacturers, MROs, leasing companies and airlines to start cooperation.
