Augmented reality(AR) is creating a stir in manufacturing, but the industry has not yet grasped the far-reaching changes as AR becomes more ubiquitous. Here is a look at a few of the ways AR will change manufacturing, followed by some tips for achieving the best results for your implementation.
How AR Will Affect Manufacturing
AR is an important component of Industry 4.0, the next wave of revolutionary changes in the manufacturing industry. The state-of-the-art technologies that support Industry 4.0 include IoT, robotics, 3-D printing, nanotechnology, digital twins, VR, and AR. AR has quickly captured the imaginations of consumers, but in the long run, its impact on manufacturing will eclipse its consumer use-cases.
