<p><a href="…;, a leader in enterprise software for augmented reality (AR) devices, recently announced another successful pilot at GE Aviation* using the company&#39;s <a href="…; platform on Glass Enterprise Edition. View the video above.</p>

<p>The new use case combined with significant growth in AR and assisted reality implementations across GE, Boeing and many other customers worldwide, is a testament to the immediate return on investment companies in the industrial sector see after deploying Skylight on Glass.</p>

<p>GE Ventures first invested in Upskill in 2015. Today, GE, both one of Upskill&#39;s largest customers and an investor, is using Skylight in seven active projects at 12 locations globally.</p>

<p>These smart glass implementations span a wide range of use cases across GE Businesses&mdash;from topbox cabinet wiring, to warehouse picking and kitting, to field repair and maintenance.</p>

<p>In the case of GE Aviation, age-old tools are now becoming connected, and interacting digitally with people who build and repair aircraft engines.</p>

<p>Mechanics tested Skylight on Glass combined with a WiFi-enabled torque wrench to optimally tighten bolts while performing routine assembly and maintenance tasks.</p>

<p>The result, reduced errors at key points in the assembly and overhaul of engines, unlocking <strong>millions of dollars in savings</strong> both for GE and its customers. GE Aviation also saw an <strong>average increase of 8 percent to 12 percent in mechanic efficiency while using the smart glasses</strong>, further increasing the operational and financial value proposition.</p>
