Some perks of using Augmented Reality
AR has found its use in modeling and design processes. Whether building or designing small or a large product like a facility or a car, a prototype has to be developed firstly. With AR technology, companies can build a virtual prototype, which can be viewed in the real environment. Such 3D-powered models can be a useful tool to test customer acceptance as well as different format options before spending a large amount of money on a failed product.
2. Remote Assistance
The AR technology allows professionals, who are unable to be present on site, to provide remote consulting to inexperienced field workers in real time, thereby significantly decreasing expenses on subject matter experts. Seeing the 3D representations of field objects, the professionals can guide field employees through troubleshooting processes.
3. Trainings and Learning
The AR capabilities have proven to be also effective in the educational realm. Employee trainings based on AR are much more effective and take less time. By adding virtual elements like sound and video to existed real objects, employees are provided with all needed information right on the field, thereby they are able to get a better understanding of operational processes, heavy equipment and/or company’s daily workflow.
