How Augmented and Virtual Reality is becoming the future of manufacturing?
The applications of AR and VR in various strata of the manufacturing sector can help it grow out of time-consuming, redundant cycles of functioning. AR is bringing precision to production and empowering workers with state-of-the-art methods for efficiency and ease. Through personalised guidance, automated support,better monitoring and analysis of faults & flaws, this technology assists people in focusing on their work and having an eye for detail. The ability of new-age technologies such as AI, Big Data and IoT to make manufacturing smarter and more inventive has received a lot of attention in recent years. And today, the potential of AR for manufacturing is only beginning to be explored, signalling enormous potential. Because of the development of sophisticated technology, every critical activity previously carried out by a time-consuming, manual method is now automated, simplified and painless. It is yet too early to tell if AR and VR investments indicate a coming revolution that will forever change manufacturing as we know it or if early adopters are experimenting. In any case, virtual technology in production is no longer just hype.
