Industrial Augmented Reality
In recent years, Augmented Reality (AR) has dramatically impacted (AR) has made a significant impact on our daily lives. It started as a technique used mainly for gaming and entertainment but has now been embraced by various industries. Unlike virtual reality (VR), AR allows interaction between computer-generated information and the world around you. This technology's potential has made it easy to adopt by businesses in various fields. The technology is now applied for everything from education and training to advanced technical support.
At XMReality, we have embraced augmented reality since 2007. In our remote visual assistance tool, you can use the AR feature Hands Overlay to guide your counterpart by overlaying your hand gestures on top of real-time video. You can further explore how Augmented Reality can be used in several industries and why you should use AR for faster problem-solving.
Augmented reality in Manufacturing
In production processes, many of the KPIs are related to maintenance. It’s crucial to avoid unnecessary machine downtime because of scheduled or predictive maintenance that takes too long. In worst cases, the resolution of unscheduled downtime depends on an outside expert traveling to your location.
You can empower the workforce thanks to Augmented Reality technology and visual assistance. With XMReality, you can quickly connect with the expertise needed for your maintenance to let them guide you through the process, even if they are in a completely different location.
Augmented Reality in Housing and Real estate
One of the daily challenges workers in the housing industry face is how to be prepared for the unexpected. They might receive a fault report with little background and need to dispatch a service technician to inspect and solve the problem. The service technician arrives on site and often discovers that he needs more equipment to fix the problem, which results in a second visit and delay in resolving the issue.
With an AR solution, these common problems can be prevented. Your company saves time and money by remotely inspecting properties and knowing which equipment your technician should bring for a visit.
Augmented Reality in Energy
The utility and energy sectors are facing a massive challenge to adapt their businesses to be long-term sustainable. Therefore, augmented and virtual reality is essential tools for innovation and digitalization.
Field technicians with AR mobile devices or smart glasses can immediately access operational documentation, such as maintenance history and replacement conditions.
In case of any damaged equipment, an operator can react promptly, call an expert technician, and use visual assistance to get a second pair of eyes on the problem. This accelerates operational processes, reduces costs, and saves time.
Augmented Reality in Packaging
Production managers must have the production line up and running. A malfunctioning production line may lead to unplanned downtimes, loss of output performance, and delivery failures.
Using augmented reality, field service experts can show the technician what to check and which button to press to solve their issue. They can also ask workers to provide your expert with the necessary information without going anywhere.
Augmented Reality in Food and Beverage
Companies within the food and beverage industry have become experts at predicting and adapting to consumer demands. However, with the global pandemic, consumer perceptions and priorities around food have changed, and that is faster than ever before.
At first glance, this might seem like a challenge. But it has also presented a significant opportunity for businesses to become market leaders by developing automated and remote technologies to meet their customers’ needs.
Augmented Reality technology allows manufacturers to service automated lines remotely, using minimal staff to be guided onsite by experienced experts.
