Firms use blockchain,AR to create port maintenance systems

Jelurida, a provider of blockchain solutions, collaborated with the augmented reality (AR) company Aumenta Solutions to develop a maintenance system for port infrastructure.

The goal of the project is to increase efficiency, decrease downtime, and improve the precision of maintenance duties for ports, which are essential for serving ships, cargo, and passengers.

In the year 2020, a research team from the University of Girona and Aumenta Solutions collaborated to develop a blockchain-based maintenance system, integrating blockchain certification and augmented reality to improve the traceability of maintenance operations.

With this technology, Aumenta Solutions and MSI intend to target the global port infrastructure market. According to Pere Roset, managing partner at Aumenta Solutions, the blockchain certification program is integral to their initiative. Francisco Sarrias from Jelurida also commented on the significance of AR for maintenance, as did Roset:

“The certification program is an important component of the project, ensuring that maintenance tasks are done properly at the right place and at the right time.”

AR is a “game changer,” according to Sarrias, because it enables employees to access digital information in real time. “We are thrilled to introduce this new technology to the industry and contribute to the acceleration of innovation in maintenance procedures,” Sarrias said.

AR has been observed frequently within the Web3 environment. At the most recent Metaverse Fashion Week, a hybrid augmented reality fashion runway was projected in the Piazza del Duomo di Milano, one of Milan, Italy’s most iconic locations.

Jack Daniels, a producer of whisky, has also recently created a Web3 campaign utilizing AR and digital collectibles based on polygons. Participants will be able to acquire digital crates containing rewards such as gift cards and trips to Jack Daniel’s distillery.
