Over the past decade, researchers have investigated AR as a promising candidate technology for building advanced interfaces for maintenance personnel. Nevertheless, the low usability of cumbersome hardware, the need to use markers, and the complexity of creating digital content seem to hinder AR's effective implementation in industry. This prototype system aims to demonstrate that you can implement AR to support aircraft maintenance personnel. To meet a daily inspection procedure's operational requirements, the system employs markerless pose estimation.
