About Cognite Remote
Cognite Remote is a highly configurable application, powered by Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) and a dynamic 3D digital twin. It provides a secure environment to locate, navigate and understand contextualized data from multiple sources and conduct industrial inspections and asset integrity management at scale.
You can install and run Remote as a local application on your PC, or you can run the cloud version in a web browser:
We recommend running Remote as a local application on a PC if you use Remote daily. Your PC needs a modern dedicated graphics card, such as a 20 or 30 series graphics card from NVIDIA.
Contact your Cognite representative to get a download link for the Remote application, and then follow the instructions in this article to install it on your PC.
If you use Remote infrequently, we recommend that you use the cloud version. It has the same features as the PC version but uses server-side rendering and runs well also on a less powerful computer.
If necessary, contact email@example.com to enable the cloud version of Remote for your CDF project.
When you have signed in, you'll see a gallery of the twins you have access to. Click one of the twins to open it. You can switch between the available twins using a drop-down in the top bar.
When interacting with a twin, you can select between different modes. Which modes are available for a twin, depends on the twin configuration. Use the top bar to switch between the available modes:
Explore - to navigate a 3D digital representation of an asset (CAD models, point cloud data, 360 images) and to access detailed information about equipment, including access to real-time sensors. This mode is available in all twins by default.
Plan - to create plans, allocate work orders, and interactively enrich the plan with markups.
Contextualize - to link 3D objects to equipment and make the twin "smarter" and more interactive.
