Mitchell Releases Hands-Free Tech for Auto Repair Facilities
Mitchell, a provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions for the property and casualty claims and colision repair industries, has released Mitchell Intelligent Vision, an extended reality (XR) hands-free, voice-enabled solution integrated into the collision repair workflow.
Mitchell collaborated with Qualcomm Technologies and RealWear on Intelligent Vision, leveraging the Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile XR Platform and the RealWear HMT-1 voice-controlled headset.
"XR is transforming industries across the globe," said Brian Vogelsang, senior director of product management at Qualcomm, in a statement. "With our Snapdragon technology paired with Mitchell's expertise in automotive repair, we are excited to help transform the way collision repairers work by helping them improve productivity, meet customer expectations, and address the challenges of today's complex automobiles with the new Mitchell Intelligent Vision solution."
"RealWear's purpose-built, fully ruggedized headset was designed for environments like collision repair facilities where technicians need to streamline operations and enable hands-free access to much-needed repair procedures," said Sanjay Jhawar, co-founder and president of RealWear.
The Mitchell Intelligent Vision solution allows technicians to automate the collection of data. Voice activation and an XR field of vision provide access to critical manufacturer procedures during teardown and repair.
