The Road to Industrial Immersive AR: Crossing the Chasm

Session Description

The work of field service engineers, inspection and maintenance workers, assembly mechanics, and electricians are typical of the many jobs that require technical field documentation, detailed work instructions, form submissions and reports. Newer needs include hands-on coaching by remote experts, visualization of data feeds and analytics from the industrial Internet of Things. Support for these workers started with paper, moved to PDFs, expanded to include rugged handheld computers, and currently includes tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices. Yet none of these permit the hands free use that promotes safety and ultimate productivity. Immersive Augmented Reality may be an eventual solution, but current platforms are early and fragmented, the investment in content transformation is massive, usability is not well solved and devices are not suitable for tough environments. Enter the industrial head mounted tablet—a new category of wearable device that acts as the pragmatic bridge to industrial AR, solving many of the problems faced by the 100 million global skilled field workers in heavy industry.
