    Augmenting Inspection Capabilities with Mixed-Reality

    We demonstrate the use of mixed-reality headset worn by an inspector on the site of inspection. Such a headset along with the software we have developed, can augment the on-site inspector's capabilities to visualize and interact with digital annotations. Thus allowing precise and clear information about the region of interest.
