Augmented Reality (AR) technology brings you efficient and cost-effective psychophysics-based solutions to solve your problems. Using AR-Powered Tablets, plant equipment is simulated inside industrial classrooms to train employees. On-the-Job Assistance using Augmented Reality technology through Tablets or Wearables enables digital overlays over the real environment with visual instruction and interactive guidance. Fusion VR is the leading augmented reality company in India delivering effective augmented reality solutions to address your unique challenges.
Augmented Reality (AR) understands the physical environment and overlays contextual digital content that enhances our real-world experiences. Its name is derived from the augmentation (value addition) that this technology brings to activities that you would be engaged in the real-world. It’s a hybrid experience where the Physical and digital worlds co-exist and compliment each other in a useful manner.
AR is one of the most easily accessible technologies for industrial and personal applications. It requires only a smartphone, tablet or wearables. Unlike VR, AR does not cut-off the user from the physical world that they are in and therefore the immersive experience is limited.
Fusion VR, one of India’s best Augmented Reality companies, delivers effective AR solutions that address the manufacturing industry’s unique challenges.
How is Augmented Reality (AR) used in enterprises today?
Augmented Reality (AR) technology is used today by enterprises in many different ways. The applications are diverse and vary across several industries in both technical and non-technical applications.
AR helps design teams to collaborate more effectively with experts and stakeholders in real-time. This comprehensively reduces the time and effort needed to complete all necessary reviews with engineers across various disciplines and geographies.
AR provides solutions that enable enterprises to improve workforce performance and productivity resulting in reduced downtime and better return on investment. Visual, auditory and sensory information is provided on the chosen device to support the execution of tasks. Training and step-by-step guidance are provided for operations, maintenance, quality control, product marketing, customer support, emergency response etc.
AR applications provide connectivity and remote support to inaccessible locations or situations which demand immediate remedial assistance. Enterprises need to collaborate with AR experts to develop tailor-made AR solutions that address their pain points.
Which Industries can take maximum advantage of Augmented Reality technology?
Several industries can derive maximum advantage from Augmented Reality (AR) applications immediately. Use cases need to be identified and designing suitable AR solutions is crucial for successful business outcomes.
Some of the industries that can quickly deploy AR technology include Oil & Gas, Mining, Chemicals, Utilities, Nuclear, Automotive, Pharma Life-Sciences, Healthcare, Real Estate, Electronics, Education etc. AR enables seamless collaboration with multiple remote teams, reduced execution errors, productivity growth, superior decision making, customer satisfaction and cost savings.
Augmented Reality applications are doing to transform the way we work, play and live in the future. The changes are already underway with companies like Facebook introducing the “Metaverse” to achieve greater impact. AR solutions are finding increasing use in training, engineering, research, industry, safety, marketing, customer support etc. Newer industries and services could also emerge with the growth of AR.
AR has found increasing use because of the challenges created due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Significant advances in Display & Sensor technologies, Advanced AI/Computer vision, GPU, 5G networks, Edge-Computing, Secured Cloud Technologies, to name a few are destined to transform the AR ecosystem. With growing accessibility, the cost of implementing this technology also decreases spurring further applications in the industrial and commercial applications space. The future of AR is on solid ground and companies that do not recognize or ignore its potential would have a difficult time managing future completion and achieving growth targets.
Augmented Reality Training Simulators deliver immersive, scenario-based, experiential learning. This enables engineers and technicians to learn critical skills, test and evaluate themselves to handle high risk equipment and tools without even entering the Process Plant or Shop-Floor but inside an immersive, safe and zero-consequence virtual environment.
AR education makes learning fun! Well-designed games motivate and imbue players with clear goals, a sense of reward and fulfilment, encouraging them to persist until those goals are achieved. Applying motivational power to non-game contexts is Gamification which makes learning interesting and easier than ever.
AR transforms your employees into competent, confident individuals, inheriting decades of knowledge and experience in a short duration saving years of training time. Latest study indicates that AR implementation has immediately increased the Operations and Maintenance efficiencies by 40-65% and in some cases up to 90%.
Augmented Reality technology holds the promise to a smart future in manufacturing. Fusion VR is India’s leading Augmented Reality solutions provider with the capabilities to fulfil that promise.
