So, we only have 1D asset tags, will that work with Manifest?

No. Manifest does not support 1D asset tags.  Because Manifest work instructions are often augmented with 3D content that needs to be spatially anchored to physical equipment, QR codes are required. 1D asset tags do not contain enough information.  However, data from 1D asset tags can be imported into Manifest as part of an Asset …

So, we only have 1D asset tags, will that work with AR-enabled work instructions?

Yes, some solutions support 1D asset tags in limited ways.  It is important to note, however, that 1D asset tags typically only include information about the specific pierce of equipment and do not contain enough information to spatially anchor 3D content associated with work instructions. Therefore, most AR-enabled work instructions use QR codes to provide …

Do I have to use a QR code with Manifest – I can’t put anything on my equipment?

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 …

Do I have to use a QR code with an augmented reality work instructions solution– I can’t put anything on my equipment?

No. But it is often the best approach.  QR codes are a type of a barcode that is a machine-readable optical label which contains information. They are commonly used with augmented reality work instruction solutions for two primary reasons.  First, they can act as a unique ID for a specific piece of equipment so that …
