“The past few years in the AR/VR industry have shown an increase in understanding around hardware and use cases for augmented and virtual reality devices, and this has happened in stages. The first stage was education around how AR/VR devices and experiences actually work: differences between AR and VR, how spatial tracking and georegistration work, etc. The next stage is currently ongoing, where small scale pilot phases and beta tests show potential in specific use cases; this is where the common case study metrics come from, with use cases like Training, remote expertise, and field service are commonly tied to impressive but vague improvements in case studies. But as the market begins to truly scale, there are near infinite variables that can significantly impact ROI, and lead to disappointing results when compared in a vacuum to the existing case study data. This talk will hone in on those potential variables both in current popular verticals and use cases as well as less explored areas, and contextualize everything with both quantitative market data and qualitative talking points. This information will serve as a jumping off point for future discussion, preparation, and ideally implementation with some of the unsureness removed from the equation.”
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.
