Siemens and BILT Launch Apple Vision Pro Spatial Computing Electrical Training

April 23, 2024

Siemens and BILT, the creators of 3D Intelligent Instructions, are optimizing their mobile guides into spatial models for Apple Vision Pro.

As the need for skilled electricians and other trades grows, training the entering workforce while up-skilling the existing one, is essential. Tools such as BILT on Apple Vision Pro provide a highly immersive and visual training experience that helps users not only learn faster, but safer.

Siemens’ first product assembly and installation guides available on BILT on Apple Vision Pro include Siemens Smart Infrastructure’s Class 14 NEMA motor starter, designed to control and protect motors applied in industrial processes, and the P5 Power Distribution Panel. The latter is used in a variety of commercial construction applications to safely distribute power within a building.

With the ultra-high-resolution display system on Apple Vision Pro, BILT provides users a photorealistic digital twin that combines the real and the digital worlds, unlocking powerful spatial experiences. Guided learning on Apple Vision Pro allows users to utilize natural and intuitive gestures using their eyes, hands, and voice to interact with each element of the product, enlarge or minimize parts, and see animated step-by-step assembly instructions.

“This is a great example as to how we are maximizing digitalization to enable the next generation of electricians,” said Andreas Matthé, CEO of Electrical Products at Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “The ability to pick a digital representation of electrical equipment and work with it in the physical space in front of you, transforms the educational experience, creating a safer, low cost and innovative way of learning.”

To further the partnership and accelerate applications globally, BILT will become the newest addition to Siemens’ Xcelerator Ecosystem and Marketplace.Siemens Xcelerator, an open digital business platform and powerful ecosystem of partners, is where industrial clients from around the world can look for solutions that suit their needs. As part of Siemens Xcelerator, BILT will now be available as a turnkey solution to accelerate digital transformation and learning easier, faster, and at scale.

“Closing the skills gap and empowering the next generation of electricians is what we at Siemens also aim for. By partnering with innovative companies like BILT, we are revolutionizing the learning experience,” said Siemens Chief Technology Officer Peter Koerte. “We are excited to welcome BILT as the newest partner in our Siemens Xcelerator ecosystem — further expanding our transformative workforce offerings together.”

In the future, Siemens plans to introduce several additional products to BILT for Apple Vision Pro to supplement its extensive library of mobile instructions. The roadmap includes Siemens’ smart home energy management portfolio of products, InHab, as well as power distribution switchboards designed for electric vehicle charging applications.

“Siemens is an industry innovator,” said Nate Henderson, chairman & CEO of BILT. “They’re making it possible for apprentices and new electricians to upskill faster, install with confidence, and follow safety guidelines more easily. BILT for Apple Vision Pro enables them to provide tactical and intuitive training that fits the needs of a new generation of learners.”  

Attendees at Germany’s largest industrial tradeshow, Hannover Messe, will have an opportunity to experience BILT on Apple Vision Pro from April 22nd – 23rd, 2024 at the Siemens booth in hall 9. The demo will feature a guided installation of Siemens’ Class 14 NEMA motor starter and P5 Power Distribution Panel as part of Siemens’ Xcelerator showcase.
