Return To Scene digitally enables the

offshore workforce with launch of AR app

4 September 2018

Aberdeen based Return To Scene Limited, part of James Fisher and Sons plc will launch R2S AR, an enterprise augmented reality (AR) application designed to digitally enable the offshore workforce at the inaugural SPE ENGenious Symposium and Exhibition in Aberdeen this week.

An iterative evolution from the continuous development of Return To Scene’s award-winning R2S software, the app will provide the offshore worker with accurate and live information onsite, creating greater accuracy and efficiency gains.

Return To Scene’s technical director, Martin MacRae comments:

"R2S AR extends the value proposition of our software to include both remote and onsite users. All data held by our clients in R2S on their projects is now accessible through intrinsically safe mobile devices.
Users can simply point the device at the equipment onsite and R2S AR will provide detailed information on, for example, but not limited to; maintenance history, asset registers and live data feeds.

As a business, we are uniquely placed to immediately tackle the content challenge facing many looking to enter AR space. For us and our clients, the content already exists; R2S AR provides an alternative way to access this data for the use - at the coal face."

Return To Scene has developed an event-specific version of the application for SPE ENGenious, where users can be among the first to experience R2S AR. “R2S AR for ENGenious” is available now at the Google Play Store.
