June 06 2013 – The Otolift measurement tool, developed by TWNKLS using ARToolKit and MarkerSLAM tracking, was awarded with an ‘Auggie’ for Best Enterprise AR project at the Augmented World Expo 2013.
Otolift is a Dutch company that produces stair lifts for elderly and disabled people that are sold worldwide through a dealer network. The measurement tool allows Otolift’s sales representatives to visit customers in their homes, measure the dimensions of the existing stairway and create a 3D reconstruction of the stair lift. Direct feedback about the quality of the measurement and a reduced error margin (1 ‰), results in a reliable and usable measurement that can be used without further adjustment in the stair lift production process. Thanks to this application, less time is needed to take the measurements, whilst the quality of the measurement increases. It now being an automated process, measurements errors no longer occur which results in higher efficiency and lower production errors.
TWNKLS, founded in 2011, is a full service AR agency that focuses on the creation, development, production and implementation of mobile AR applications.
ARToolworks’ CEO, Ben Vaughan, commented:
“TWNKLS is a worthy winner of this award – the vast majority of AR applications are in the advertising/marketing sectors so it is great to see an innovative real world application that delivers real benefits to the end user. We worked closely with TWNKLS in the development of the enabling technology and allowing them access to our source code helped bring this project to fruition.”
