Mitchell, a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the Property & Casualty (P&C) claims and Collision Repair industries, announced the release of Mitchell Intelligent Vision, the industry's first Extended Reality (XR) hands-free solution integrated into the collision repair workflow.

Introduced last year as a proof of concept, the solution was featured at the company's mPower Conference, a virtual event held Oct. 13-15, and shipping is expected before the end of the year.

 

The Mitchell Intelligent Vision solution is designed to improve the speed, efficiency and accuracy of the collision repair workflow---from vehicle check in to check out.

 

Mitchell collaborated with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and RealWear, Inc. on its delivery, leveraging the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Mobile XR Platform and the RealWear HMT-1 100% voice-controlled headset.

 

"XR is transforming industries across the globe," said Brian Vogelsang, senior director of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "With our Snapdragon technology paired with Mitchell's expertise in automotive repair, we are excited to help transform the way collision repairers work—by helping them improve productivity, meet customer expectations and address the challenges of today's complex automobiles with the new Mitchell Intelligent Vision solution."

 

"RealWear's purpose-built, fully ruggedized headset was designed for environments like collision repair facilities where technicians need to streamline operations and enable hands-free access to much-needed repair procedures," said Sanjay Jhawar, co-founder and president, RealWear.

 

The Mitchell Intelligent Vision solution allows technicians to automate the collection of data---including consumer and vehicle information---for faster vehicle check in. They can also use the solution to take time-stamped photos of the damage and automatically upload them to Mitchell's cloud-based ecosystem.
