Austin Company Adapts AR Training Tech Amidst COVID-19

Share Article

Novel technology company, HookBang, expands the capabilities of their intelligent training software to offer real time education for those handling ventilators and other critical medical devices.

HookBang, an innovative R&D company, has adapted their Augmented Reality (AR) training system to assist in preparing users in the operation of the Zoll 731 EMV ventilator. Using cameras and Artificial Intelligence (AI), HookBang’s training system interactively instructs users on critical operational tasks, requiring significantly less time than paper based training. This allows for a safer and more rapid deployment of the hardware. The adaptation is an important step in the response to the COVID-19 crisis, as ventilators are now in critical demand and rapid training and deployment is a top priority. As numerous companies such as Tesla, Ford, and GM scramble to produce newly designed ventilators to aid in this shortage, training is critical to ensure that these devices are used and maintained safely.

HookBang has an extensive history of developing machine vision and artificial intelligence based solutions. Their training platform uses AI with real-time awareness to provide users with step by step augmented reality directions for operating a device. In 2019, HookBang began work with the US Air Force to expand the application of its technology to a broader array of device types. With COVID-19 now putting the health of millions at risk, the company has invested its own resources and focus to adapt their AR-enabled artificial intelligence to ventilators.

HookBang would like to work with ventilator developers, new or existing, to provide the accompanying AR training software. The company is also interested in partnering with hospitals and organizations that need to quickly train personnel on any critical hardware device. If interested, please contact them directly for more information.
