  • Augmented Reality connected to TIBCO Cloud

    Learn about the Augmented Reality Experience showed at TIBCO NOW London End of September 2019.


    To meet today?s information-interaction challenges, companies are starting to build augmented reality (AR/XR) experiences. Use cases are varied, but often fall into three categories:

    • Customer experience (common examples include advertising, product guidance, and gaming)
    • Training (for specific physical tasks like equipment maintenance)
    • Productivity (for actions that can be assisted by virtual information like walking through a museum, reacting in an emergency, or finding the fastest route through the airport)

    In all cases, and especially for training and productivity-related scenarios, AR/XR allows both historical and real-time enterprise data to be delivered, consumed and presented to the user in new ways that increase the value of the data. Information may be displayed as holograms to enrich the real environment, and all this is completely and automatically handsfree, and can even include voice control.

    To showcase the possibilities, TIBCO LABS is exploring and demonstrating how TIBCO Cloud? capabilities can facilitate and simplify building AR/XR applications.  By seamlessly integrating enterprise data into AR/XR scenarios, users can be immersed in rich, fun, and highly relevant interactive experiences.

    Use cases

    Together with two women of the TIBCO sponsored pro cycling team ?Team TIBCO Silicon Valley Bank? we presented an interactive bike challenge.


    We expose one of the fancy bikes and invite visitors to ride 30 seconds to do their best. This is the ?Team TIBCO Bike Challenge?. TIBCO Data Science stack is used to collect data from a series of sensors (heart rate, crank revolution, the power generated, ?) to display metrics of the performance in real-time and establish a leader board. They are usually encouraged by one of the team members herself!

    We have decided to ?augment? this experience. 

    Use case 1

    Now, a spectator can wear  Microsoft Hololens glasses and look at the Team TIBCO Bike Challenge while someone is trying to beat a record. The app displays different information depending on the direction you are looking at :

    • heart rate when looking at the body, 
    • speed when looking at the front wheel 
    • power on the rear wheel
    • cadence on pedals.

    Those data come from the TIBCO Cloud Messaging channel and are received in the Unity Application on the Hololens glasses.

    Use case 2

    The application is also showing a virtual board with photos of all team members.

    When clicking on a photo, an information card moves close to the user, rotates and reveals information about the selected runner.


    All information on the team members comes from  TIBCO Cloud LiveApps, our case management solution.


    Sensor Data from the physical Bike get connected using a lightweight Flogo Implementation running on a Raspberry Pi to TIBCO Cloud Messaging and Stream Data, Spotfire and finally Microsoft Hololens. 


    The following video has been captured during the TIBCO Now event in London in September 2019.

    Look at this smile at his Face during exploring the AR Experiences, can it say more?
