Taqtile announces collaboration with Qualcomm on industrial AR solutions

In Augmented Reality News 

March 2, 2023 – This week at Mobile World Congress (MWC), Taqtile, a provider of industrial augmented reality (AR) software, has announced that it is working with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a global provider of semiconductors and a key enabler of the metaverse through its continued investments and research in extended reality (XR) technology.

Taqtile stated that with support from Qualcomm Technologies, it will work on new solutions based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Spaces XR Developer Platform, that will allow deskless workers to access AR-enabled work instructions and remote experts to perform tasks more completely, efficiently, and safely.

Leveraging AR technology, Taqtile’s Manifest software platform helps to improve operational workflows so that jobs can get done more accurately and consistently, according to the company. The company stated that bolstered by Snapdragon Spaces, deskless workers will be able to more easily and efficiently document maintenance and operational procedures, follow step-by-step work instructions, remotely collaborate with experts, and analyze job performance and history.

Qualcomm Technologies is added to a list of several other major companies that Taqtile has collaborated with, including Accenture, Amazon AWS, Booz Allen Hamilton, Microsoft, Nokia, T-Mobile, and Verizon, among others.

Designed as a platform-independent solution, Manifest has been engineered with the capability to support an expanding number of heads-up displays (HUDs), enabling enterprise customers to select hardware platforms that meet their unique needs and work-environment requirements, according to Taqtile. The company also noted that as new heads-up display technologies enter the market, it implements rigorous evaluation and testing processes to identify the devices that its platform supports.

“Qualcomm Technologies’ vision to enable new, hardware-agnostic ways for industrial workers to connect and communicate with the information and experts that will help them do their jobs is in complete alignment with Taqtile’s,” said John Tomizuka, Taqtile CTO. “With the Snapdragon Spaces platform from Qualcomm, we will evolve the market for industrial AR solutions, dramatically boosting the performance of our customers and their deskless workers.”
