Scope of AR User manual
In technical communication, Augmented Reality offers new opportunities: While users had to look for and compile information with a lot of effort from different sources or had to continuously carry the manual with them, Augmented Reality provides direct access to information. For example, the technology helps to carry out maintenance work faster, with fewer complications and thus more economically.
The technology saves time spent on searching technical documents and offers a quick overview. Virtually-added quick information delivers further references to more accurate descriptions. In this case, Augmented Reality supplements the manual, but doesn’t replace it. The quick reference with transfer to the existing product documentation could therefore be a primary area of application for Augmented Reality in the coming years.

Well, Mercedes-Benz can cut back on the thickness of some of its manuals thanks to its Ask Mercedes app, which the company says is now a permanent fixture for current premium models.
“At present, owners of 2018 model year E- and S-class sedans who own an iPhone 6 or newer iPhone can open the app and use the camera and touchscreen on the phone to access details on the car’s interior and functions rather than having to flip through the indexes of a paper manual. Once a feature’s button is selected, the app communicates information on said feature via video, audio, and text.”
Augmented Reality Manuals: Effective throughout the product life cycle
- Unboxing and installation
Talking about the feature of the most popular applications that is interactive user manual that has been assistance with setup and installation of the devices. Thus, a typical AR unboxing guide provides superimposed instructions on mobile phones. The video representation of the physical product gets assembled with the features. For example, Ikea’s AssembleAR app built on Apple’s ARKit operates the original diagrams and layouts of the paper IKEA manual.
The best part is that it overlays them with animation that simulate and clarify the self-assembly process. This type augmented reality helps in instructing customers on how to properly use the electronic device before installation.
- Product introduction
Market of enterprises have also made good use of AR capabilities. Thereby, providing users with an overview of their new product functionalities. AR manual help user in understanding better with the help of visually immersive experience. Talking about the usage of AR manual car manufacturers were early adopters of the AR manuals. With proper user friendly approach, it allows consumers to use their smartphone or tablet to get acquainted with every element on their new vehicle’s dashboard.
These AR manuals includes how-to information for basic repairs and maintenance, such as checking oil, refilling wiper fluid, etc. Therefore, it makes use of engaging AR-based user guides, which transform the initial interaction with appliances, electronic devices into an easier, fun and improved experience.
Today, many consumer-facing products have lengthy troubleshooting process can be performed independently with the help of an intelligent, interactive visual guide.
This type of manual clearly explains the instructions in a step-by-step format. Troubleshooting involves a complex and non-linear process. Thus identifying the problem and determining the correct sequence of actions based on the particular device is the better usage of AR manual. Talking about this process, in order to successfully manage it the AR manual must be supported by proper advanced computer visualization with Artificial intelligence deep learning capabilities.
