The question manufacturing leaders are urgently asking is: How do I keep my business operating in this labor environment?
Augmented reality is one of the tools that can assist and this white paper gives you an insight into this important technology and explains how the technology can be used in a manufacturing setting.
Manufacturers are struggling to attract, retain, and train workers amid pandemic-triggered disruptions. Many businesses are also looking for ways to reduce long-distance travel to both save on costs and reduce their carbon footprint. Manufacturing leaders can adopt mature, mobile network-based augmented reality solutions to preserve the businesses’ technical expertise, improve training and boost worker productivity.
What is Augmented Reality?
Augmented reality (AR) is a mature technology. It scans real-life surroundings using a camera, analyzes the image and then overlays on it relevant digital (virtual) elements, such as photos, diagrams, animations, automated check lists, contextual step-by-step assembly/disassembly instructions, parts and inventory information, and much more. The resulting “augmented” reality can be delivered on a wireless tablet, such as an iPad, ruggedized wearable devices or specialized headsets, such as Microsoft’s HoloLens 2.
Proven AR platforms, combined with the right hardware and mobile network, let manufacturing leaders quickly capture expertise from veteran workers.
