Augmented Reality for Industry 4.0
Augmented Reality & Industry 4.0
In line with the objectives of Industry 4.0, augmented reality (AR) integrates a user interface that represents real-life situations and data with useful information in the form of visual, audio, or tactile signals.
Real-time information delivered through augmented reality technologies can help manufacturers increase quality, efficiency, and safety. AR offers all the benefits of automated inspection – time savings, improved accuracy, and non-destructive defect detection – while still including human experience.
Visual, audio, and tactile alerts keep employees aware of their surroundings and provide timely warnings to promote safety. The benefits of AR for inspection and quality control are especially pronounced for training new and inexperienced employees, but AR still provides significant utility to experienced employees.
