The complete analysis of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Platform market on the global scale provides key details in form of graphs, statistics and tables
What are some of the best uses for augmented reality (AR)?
AR is distinct from VR in that it offers users graphical enhancements to their real, physical environment, rather than creating an entirely new environment. Experts predict an explosion of creative uses as the technology becomes more ubiquitous.
AR has the same value proposition across the entire spectrum,” Kovach said. “An individual is looking at something through smart glasses, and AR compiles contextual information to assist that person, whether it’s treating a patient or you’re in an office and trying to learn something.”
Here’s a quick look at how this versatile technology is currently used, and how it could evolve in the future to radically change the way people think about doing business.
Augmented reality can completely change the way geographically dispersed employees connect. When the team holds a meeting, remote workers can often be detached from the group or become easily distracted. With AR, however, it’s as if everybody is actually present in the room. The meeting instantly becomes more engaging for the remote workers, and those who are physically present are more likely to include them in the discussion. Even subtle things like eye contact and facial expressions can really increase the effectiveness of your collaborative efforts.
Training and education
Training employees with AR technology creates an immersive, interactive experience across multiple senses, which is far more effective than a typical lecture or simply reading instructions. With either on screen instructions or layered graphics, users can be shown complex processes step-by-step, or given prompts and instruction on a certain task. Using these methods, AR offers the capability to increase the depth of the training process, while expediting it at the same time.
Augmented reality also promises improved knowledge in the realm of repairs, where even inexperienced people can fix complex machines. By demonstrating each component part of a machine and precisely what needs to be done to access and then repair it, AR overlays can illustrate step-by-step the process of repairing virtually anything.
“In the workplace, AR has promising practical applications, such as an engineer being able to see an overlay of a piece of machinery with repair information or sensor readings such as temperature,” Price said.
As the wolr is moving for the digital platforms, the advances motives have been introduced to the manufacturing sector as well.
