Industry 4.0: Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality
During employee training, businesses are often challenged by the demand placed on resources. Often, this can lead to shortcuts in training, which negatively impacts productivity, quality and safety. Due to inconsistent training, variation arises in how each worker performs a task, which can lead to unanticipated results and no clear understanding of the root cause. To solve these training-related issues, and those unforeseen, Augmented and Virtual Reality can help.
What is augmented and virtual reality?
Augmented Reality (AR) technology superimposes computer-generated images onto a user's view of the world, thus incorporating extra information into the real environment. Virtual Reality (VR) technology provides complete immersion through three-dimensional simulated environments that users can interact with in a seemingly real way using special electronic equipment, such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors.
