Visualizing Digital Twins for Manufacturing Industry using Streamed AR
Augmented Operator is an RnD project platform that explores how digital twins can be made accessible for operators within manufacturing industry with help of streamed AR over low latency wireless networks such as 5G
AR is a core component in Industry 4.0 but has not yet reached its full potential due to technical limitations.
Augmented Reality (AR) has proven to be a great interface between the digital twins and the operators working in production.
The technology is already in use at many larger companies but has not yet reached its full potential due to limitations in the performance of the existing hardware and software.
AR streaming reduce technical limitations and creates huge opportunities for the industrial manufacturing industry
With the rise of cloud computing, streaming technology and high-speed wireless networks such as 5G it is now possible to do all computation for AR in the cloud and in a secure way stream it over wireless networks to thin clients like handheld devices and nontethered AR headsets.
This new streaming technology will suddenly make advanced interactive 3D-visualization and AR available for use within industrial manufacturing. When computation is no longer a problem the possibilities become endless and imagination is the only limit.
