No. There is a virtual option that doesn’t require affixing anything on the physical objects. For a detailed explanation of QR codes and different approaches, please review this blog post. QR Codes or ” fiducial markers” are necessary for Manifest to orient and position the 3D elements that describe procedures. The placement of the code in the same place on every similar family of equipment or vehicle of place is fundamental for the system to work. In cases where it is not possible to use a QR code the best practice is to choose an easy location on the physical object to manually and virtually place that tag and then create an ” Alignment Template”. for that Manifest Asset Class (class of equipment). With the Alignment Template, visual cues or instructions can be used to help the user easily drag and drop the virtual QR code into the correct location. Typically, a photo of the location where it should be placed is used.
Do I have to use a QR code with Manifest – I can’t put anything on my equipment?
