App for process plant maintenance with integrated AR function

16 December 2021

Comos Mobile Worker is a new software application for mobile data management with integrated augmented reality functionalities from Siemens.

Developed in cooperation with Augmensys GmbH, a specialist in the field of mobile data management/augmented reality (AR), the Comos Mobile Worker app visualises and processes all the required data for the fast and safe maintenance of process plants – from ERP systems, engineering data and also live data from the process control system in an easy-to-use interface. 

Thanks to the direct connection to the Comos engineering software, all engineering data can be linked to enable a holistic view of the plant. Changes or annotations can be easily and securely transferred through the bidirectional exchange between the systems. The integration of location data also supports on-site navigation. If necessary, AR displays the relevant information to the user on a mobile device such as a tablet, smartphone or data glasses. The user can edit the data directly in the field and, for example, document work packages as ‘done’ and import photos and notes back into the corresponding information sources via a bidirectional interface. This information is then accessible to all authorised employees and in turn can be processed directly. 

Use cases include commissioning, inspection, mobile maintenance, and remote access to experts. 

A continuous Ethernet connection within the system is not necessary, because data processed by the offline function can be synchronised retrospectively.
