Augmented Reality for Industrial and Machine Placement

February, 2019

The proliferation of tablets, smartphones equipped with next-gen technologies and solutions along with emerging eye-wear glasses in augmented reality (AR) are expected to support the development of AR-based industrial maintenance applications. Augmented reality can be used in machine maintenance for parts analysis and simulation, staff support, layout and maintenance planning or supervising.

Augmented Reality Applications Outline: The research and advancement happening in AR technology can enable industries to turn complex assembly operations into simpler operations, and helping factory workers to easily organize their assembly lines and warehouses across different industrial domains such as aerospace, aviation manufacturing, medical device manufacturing, field services for telecommunications management, assembly line management in electronics manufacturing, and energy manufacturing among various other feasible industrial applications.

For example, project management tasks in construction or building management can be carried out more securely and effectively where engineers or managers can virtually view and monitor real time work-in-progress through augmented reality glasses with markers placed on building sections, construction parts, equipment that is being built. Pointing a camera via augmented reality devices onto industrial equipment can match it to the digital map of the factory and can verify whether it is in its designated location, enabling factory staff in streamlining the maintenance and placement of machines or equipment in plant.

Augmented reality technology can not only release factory staff from cumbersome paper layout plans but also offer staff with contextual relevant information displayed on head-mounted glasses or handheld devices for machines, equipment, and workshop management.

Influence Decision-Making: Industry leaders can take appropriate decisions when they foresee how a machine or a piece of equipment once built will fit in its ultimate environment, by observing at the superimposed field data fed through augmented reality systems. Augmented reality technology can also support in improving productivity and work behaviour in industrial processes.

Conclusion: Current research and innovation in augmented reality focuses on integrating different technological capabilities including geolocation, object recognition and tracking technologies to make industry specific augmented reality solutions. The new instant information coupled with enhanced observation will ensure that augmented reality systems perform a significant role in how people and companies work in the future.
