Too often, data that can improve worker productivity is lost because it is not delivered to the right person, at the right time, in the right way. This challenge becomes more acute as the amount of data and the speed of operations increase, placing increased stress on the worker. With a heads up display, businesses have the opportunity to provide information right in the worker's line of sight in simple, easy to understand, efficient ways that reduces stress while improving productivity, efficiency, and safety. In this session, Six15 Technologies will showcase how they are solving the data problem for essential workers from the military to the warehouse, and how HUD’s make their simpler and safer.

Description

Predicting and immersing one with the future is always a challenge and a desire. The IEEE rises to that challenge based upon the work it does on multiple new and emerging technologies through serving as a catalyst for developing new innovations, products and services. IEEE Future Directions serves as an incubator for these new initiatives. One of its focus areas, Digital Reality serves to explore and enable the coming Digital Transformation through collaboration among technologists, engineers, regulators, practitioners, and ethicists around the world. The Digital Transformation is fueled by advances in technology, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Quantum, and applications using the copious amounts of continuously generated data. By leveraging these technologies and others developed such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Digital Twins, the line between the physical world and the digital world will be increasingly less distinct, thus enabling an immersive intelligent digital world. Applications are already quickly emerging across the broad fields of education, manufacturing, medicine, entertainment, automotive, enabling the sharing of services, and more. Emphasis will be upon presenting practical applications and its implementations of interest to attendees. Subject matter expert speakers will comment on current and past implementations.
