AerinX’s AR Solution Promises to Make Aircraft Skin Inspection Faster and More Precise
February 04, 2019 / AviationPros
Hungarian firm AerinX is developing an augmented reality (AR) solution for the external inspection and maintenance of aircraft and other aerial vehicles. The company has recently started a strategic partnership with Aeroplex of Central Europe Ltd., one of the largest MROs in the CEE region, to implement the system in heavy and line maintenance processes. International aviation industry statistics show that some 70-80 percent of aircraft accidents occur due to human lapses or mistakes. While a significant portion of such cases involve mistakes committed by either pilots or flight crew, a marked amount of lapses happen during checking and maintenance of aircraft.Hungarian company AerinX aims to alleviate this problem with an AR-based system which assists with external surface checks and the conduct of related maintenance of aircraft. The system is expected to make the process simpler, faster and more precise.
