Augmented Reality (AR) may not offer the full immersion like Virtual Reality but the technology is proving itself as a very useful tool in our real world.
AR is gaining popularity because it brings digital elements into our real world, enhancing the things we see, hear, and feel. AR lies in the middle of the mixed reality spectrum; between the real world and the virtual world to create an enhanced user experience.
As the world progresses, work processes in any organizations are getting increasingly complex and sophisticated. Moreover, companies need to manage the gap left by the retiring workforce.
There is a need to prepare the new and existing workforce to manage the challenges of knowledge drain and to handle new work processes.
Information, data, records, procedures and expertise are required during the course of work, to improve work efficiencies. A high level of competency within the organization is necessary to prevent work process disruptions and to eliminate any safety breaches.
With AR technology, industries are now able to provide their staff with a complete walk-through experience of any work process. Technical documentation and 3D/CAD data can be brought into AR and visualized on AR devices.
Standard operating procedure training is easier to digest under enjoyable and controlled conditions. AR prepares learners for various scenarios by simulations, which are safe and allow for mistakes. Team or collaborative training can be carried out via an AR multi-learner environment, and on-demand documents can be referenced to ensure tasks are performed correctly.
