Abstract: Augmented Reality (AR) technology has turned into a phenomenon into human’s daily life application. Its ability is to allow users to see reality overlaid onto the physical world and to generate display information. Automotive inspection and maintenance process ensure that the safety, reliability, drivability, comfort and longevity of vehicles is being maintained. Both inspection and maintenance process have mountain of data and information for diagnostic and repair. The application of augmented reality in inspection and maintenance of automotive industry is potential to solve the issues faced by personnel working in the automotive industry. The objective of this paper are to develop an Augmented Reality platform for inspection and maintenance to assist technician and evaluate the effectiveness of implementing AR compared to traditional manual sheets inspection that are currently being used. CATIA software was used for design 3D under hood area parts and Vuforia Unity 3D was used for AR application development. The app is installed in NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 for users to use. Main data for this research is to analyse Task Completion Time for Individual Action. Result from this study shows that inspection using AR application is better with 10.72% time reduction compared to conventional paper manual. In conclusion AR application can get benefits for inspection and maintenance process in automotive industry and more works should be done to incorporate AR in more aspects in automotive industry.
