One of the main benefits of augmented reality in both agriculture and industry is the breakthrough in the approach to employee training. Particularly in environments and situations where it is often not possible or economically viable to get everyone in one place at one time.
In an industrial setting, the use of Augmented Reality (AR) and possibly pure Virtual Reality (VR) is much broader.
Augmented and virtual reality can facilitate the transition to personalised and customer-centric manufacturing by facilitating the process of improving product design. Combined with the digital twin, they allow product designers to create, study and test virtual prototypes.
Augmented reality plays a vital role in implementing quality control of manufactured or assembled products. The automotive and aerospace industries have already started using augmented reality glasses and tablets to examine the quality of parts. This reduces the error rate by up to 90%.
