AR Becoming Accessible to the Enterprise

(Diginomica)  AR’s accessibility to the enterprise is bolstered by the fact it can be used with already-adopted technology, such as iPads. The early pilots uses are mostly focused on discrete manufacturing and field service. The development tools are more accessible today and less expensive, according early adopter Dominic Hand, IT Director, Engineering, at Ingersoll Rand.
Caterpillar’s Digital & Technology Director Terry Lewis recently gave a demonstration of AR’s impact on field service equipment maintenance and repair. A Caterpillar field service worker can follow on-screen instructions on an iPad to help with troubleshooting with AR. Service processes become easier to understand and the service manual business may die because of AR.
