Lufthansa Technik (LHT) introduced a laser-based “augmented reality” interiors installation system to support completions and refurbishments of private aircraft cabins. Augmented reality, unlike virtual reality, provides users information in real time beyond what they perceive.

The augmented-reality mobile projection system acts as a positioning and alignment aid, allowing installation of components with higher precision and more efficiency than conventional measurements and alignment tools allow, according to the Hamburg-based company. Dr. Severin Todt, head of LHT’s CAx Competence Center and Tool & Equipment Solutions, called the tool a “milestone” in “advancing the digitization of industrial work processes.”
