Videos are an intuitive and maintainable way to document and transfer knowledge. Smart glasses allow to record videos hands-free from the ego-perspective with little effort. This makes them suitable devices for documenting maintenance procedures in industrial environments. Within the project AmbiWise mobile collaboration systems are developed to make knowledge easier accessible in companies. This paper presents an application that documents knowledge about maintenance processes using videos. A promising proof-of-concept was implemented on Google Glass. It showed the feasibility and the use of the concept and will be evaluated under real conditions in the field within the AmbiWise project.
