We present a novel approach for the exploitation of embedded knowledge in the domain of industrial maintenance. Our approach extends the SOUPA set of ontologies (Standard Ontology for Ubiquitous and Pervasive Applications) with two new ontologies (i) the Set of Experience Knowledge Structure, used to model the user’s experience and (ii) the AR ontology which models an Augmented Reality environment that is used to enhance the maintenance experience through virtual elements. As test case, we present an application that implements our architecture in different portable devices with video input capabilities such as UMPCs, PDAs and Tablet PCs.
