Using Remote Assist which is a hololens app

 

Remote assist and teams focuses on first line workers, first line works as service technician, factory workers, doing technical work and sometimes they need a little more help, they could use hololens to help solve this, priory to this a lot of Frontline workers email or call someone and go back and forth and explain what’s going on and how it works, experts on call sometimes have to come onsite to fix something which can be expensive.

Remote assist helps by allowing the front line worker with hololens to call a expert using teams in real time.

Summary from me.

Overall i think the idea of Mixed reality and Teams is awesome and i hope its adopted, i can see the great use cases and its definitely the future. Why send out out an engineer when you have the view what the person is seeing and collaborate and work on the issue in real-time there and then. I wonder if emergency services and rescues could adopt this as well to save lives. The possibilities are endless im sure ! i just need to get me a hololens now Smile
