Press Release | Published: 31.10.2017
Providence, RI – October 31, 2017 – ICONICS is a global automation software provider and five-time winner of the Microsoft Partner of the Year award. The company provides advanced web-enabled OPC UA and BACnet certified visualization, analytics, and mobile software solutions for any energy, manufacturing, industrial or building automation application. This week, ICONICS will demonstrate its integration with today’s “smart tech” technology, including augmented, virtual and mixed reality hardware devices.
The recent v10.95 release of ICONICS GENESIS64™ HMI/SCADA and building automation suite includes the world’s first 3D holographic machine interface (HMI), which can be used with Microsoft’s HoloLens self-contained holographic computing device. This combination of ICONICS software with Microsoft hardware allows users to visualize real-time data and analytics KPIs in both 2D and 3D holograms. When combined with ICONICS AnalytiX® software, users can take advantage of additional fault detection and diagnostics (FDD) and Hyper Historian™ data historian benefits, providing needed “on the spot” information in a hands-free manner.
ICONICS has previously shown its holographic machine interface at recent industry trade shows, working with a Microsoft HoloLens to control a Comau Racer 3 robot, using a cloud-based connection via ICONICS IoTWorX™ IoT Gateway software suite. The 2017 Worldwide Customer Summit will afford attendees the opportunity for extended exposure to the new solution.
“These new hands-free and mixed reality devices enable our customers and partners to ‘make the invisible visible’,” said Russ Agrusa, President and CEO of ICONICS. “There is a massive amount of information and value in all that collected and real-time data. Data is the new currency and we make it very easy to uncover this untapped information.  We welcome this year’s summit attendees to get a glimpse at the future of HMI wearable devices such as Microsoft’s HoloLens and RealWear HMT1, HP and Lenovo Virtual reality devices.”
These new hands free and mobile devices need to be aware of their location and position. ICONICS location services support a number of ways to get this information, including the following:
  • QR - Quick Response Code
  • Barcodes - Optical, machine readable representation of data
  • GPS - Global Positioning System
  • NFC - Near Field Communication
  • OCR - Optical Character Recognition
  • Access point and others
