Innovating the product experience at the NADA Expo and ATD Show next week, , equipment from Rotary will be part of an augmented reality “art gallery,” providing deeper product engagement and information. According to the company, the Rotary booth at the at the Las Vegas Convention Center may resemble a trip to Paris more than a trip to a trade conference, thanks to the brands’ new augmented reality (AR) art gallery installation. The Vehicle Service Group (VSG) brands will leverage experiential AR technology to show off a wide range of products, from vehicle lifts to wheel service equipment, expanding beyond what can be physically showcased in expo booth #2586C on March 23-25.

The gallery-styled experience will feature eight custom-made works of art that portray specific products across the lift, wheel service and collision repair lines of equipment. Using hand-held tablets, customers will be able to scan a painting and access a variety of information about the equipment depicted – everything from demo videos to 3D and animated models to product specifications and features. These experiences help bring to life products that may not be physically located in the booth or able to be fully demonstrated, and can give a real-time sense of how a piece of equipment can fulfill a dealership’s specific needs.

“Our AR art gallery brings a different perspective through modern technology to viewing equipment that many people are already familiar with,” says David Fischmer, VSG director of marketing. “We already consider our equipment to be true works of art, created from steel by our craftsmen back in the factory. Now, anyone can get up close and personal with our products, see them in action, and get excited about featuring them in their service department.”

Equipment includes:

  • Rotary’s SM/AR14 drive-on lift family
  • Rotary SPOA10SW asymmetrical two-post lift featuring Shockwave™ technology
  • Rotary SmartLift® inground lift
  • Rotary Wheel Service products
  • New Rotary heavy-duty symmetrical two-post lifts
  • Rotary’s Mach Flex mobile column lifting system
  • Rotary’s history of innovation

In addition to the AR gallery, the brands will feature select products within the booth to allow for hands-on opportunities. The booth footprint will include the Rotary XA14 alignment scissor lift; Rotary tire changers, wheel balancers and alignment systems; a Rotary SmartLift inground lift; and Chief’s new Meridian Live Mapping computerized measurement system.
