Augmented reality and wearable technology enter the industry
Augmented Reality and Wearable Technology Marketplace organised by Rolls-Royce, Innovate UK and Knowledge Transfer Network in Bristol has revealed ambitions plans of British manufacturers to make the country a leader in using latest AR technology. SGIL participated in the event showcasing various demos in virtual and augmented reality that demonstrated its potential in improving production process and customer’s user experience.
Speakers from Rolls Royce, Jaguar Land Rover and Digital Engineering and Test Centre have emphasised that enterprises are looking for practical applications of augmented reality combined with wearable technology. Together they become the part of transformation strategy based on the Internet-of things in various organisations. Networking of physical devices enhanced by augmented reality will enable companies to significantly enhance production capacity and quality control.
Whether AR and wearable technology is used in the field, in design studio or in manufacturing environment, it can display real-time, context-aware data that enhance employees’ ability to complete tasks more quickly and efficiently. Augmented reality together with WT offer a hand-free computing environment that provides almost boundless interaction with information and user’s surroundings.
