The XR industry is on the precipice of change. Custom, bespoke XR presentations created by agencies have a “wow” factor but are not repeatable nor scalable. This is especially true for complex engineering data. Large scale infrastructure projects need to have solutions that respond to constantly changing data and variables—and integrate seamlessly into a daily workflow. We will look at historical trends in technology to determine the near future outcomes for XR and see what the state of practice will evolve to for the use of XR in the engineering workflow. How will this work as a collaborative design and decision-making tool, and how can we use XR to communicate complex engineering data to non-technical stakeholders?
The panel members will discuss how they are overcoming the barriers to enterprise AR adoption and how the AREA is supporting wider AR adoption.
Mattney will review Lenovo’s approach to AR with their ThinkReality software platform to support 3rd party AR devices touching on how different AR use cases dictate different AR hardware such as monocular, binocular, and mixed reality glasses as well as how mobile devices fit into the ecosystem. He will also review how Lenovo’s platform tools can help you manage AR and VR devices, users, applications and groups.
The talk focuses on how Enterprises can benefit and deliver value by adopting AR/VR Solutions in training and operation needs.
It also touches upon how a Platform based approach with possibility of technical authors (non-programmers) to create AR experiences is a major step towards democratizing AR for enterprise wide usage in various functions.
It concludes with how AR delivers value as a visualization front end for contextual information overlay in IOT Sensor driven systems.
This presentation will begin with a short introduction to the Boeing Augmented Reality Kit (BARK) platform architecture. The presenter will discuss (1) its interfaces to production systems for retrieval of work instructions and configuration controlled 3D data, (2) the Services layer and automated building of 3D “jobs” for mobile devices, and (3) the front end applications running on the Microsoft HoloLens, Smartphones and Tablets.
We will then cover the first four use cases and applications to airplane manufacturing – BARK Wire Install, Locator, Viewer and Part Install. Following this, we will review work now completed to move the BARK back end into the cloud, and how we incorporated requirements around Information Security, Infrastructure and Safety into the design. Finally, the presenter will discuss some architecture considerations as the platform evolves and grows to incorporate new use cases in Boeing factories, and larger groups of more diverse users.
The Augmented Economy is here and your business will never be the same again. In this fast moving session Amar Dhaliwal, CEO of Atheer, will describe what the emergence of the Augmented Economy will mean to your business and how you can take advantage of the possibilities while avoiding the pitfalls.
