Kerim Ispir | RE'FLEKT
There is growing concern that new technologies such as AI and ML could cause an avalanche of job losses across industries and replace the worker completely - but is this entirely accurate? Let us show you how you can adapt your business to work alongside new technology by transforming media panic into sensible preparations for AR in the workforce. Our experience shows that AR will undoubtedly change the workplace, but rather than a rise of the machines, our customers are experiencing significant job growth rather than job losses. This talk will shine the light on how AR enriches, rather than replaces, the workforce to enhance and create jobs. It is common fact that, AR empowers people to perform tasks more efficiently, quicker and with less errors. In times where skilled workers for offshore or repeatable tasks are rare, AR also enables enterprises to reskill and upskill new and existing employees, enabling them to perform tasks outside their area of expertise in an enjoyable and user-friendly way.
Scope AR Presentation
Paul Davies | The Boeing Company
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.
Jan Pflüger | Audi AG
In this session Jan is going to give an overview about the manifold requirements XR solutions must fulfill for a successful implementation in an enterprise environment.
