Capgemini – Wind generator maintenance

The main task of this project was to create an engaging application for tradeshow visitors to experience the possibilities of AR maintenance by scanning 3D printed wind energy generator with a Windows Surface tablet.


  • Showcase possibilities of current Augmented Reality object tracking with no marker using edge based technology

  • Display of a maintenance scenario to visualize a broken bolt within the machine


  • VisionLib SDK by Fraunhofer IGD

  • Native application development for Windows Surface tablets


The visitors were engaged with the content in a playful way.

The application showed customers how Augmented Reality can help with maintenance scenarios to save time and money for training and repairs by trying it out themselves.
