The smartphone game Pokemon Go has lately pushed the technology “Augmented Reality” in the focus of the public view again. After different technologies, for example google glasses, have failed, the augmented reality technology seems to accomplish a breakthrough in varies areas. Also in industrial and logistic fields, there are advantages to get out of this technology and since there are also a lot of opportunities for improvement it might be a good idea as you can see in the video.
Augmented reality is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data
As you can see in the video, glasses with augmented reality features can display the next working steps, or wrong doings. Repair work could be supported by making it easier, more transparent and more accurate. The fork lift driver sees directly in front of his eyes where to drive to and where to get and bring the next package or product.
The future for this technology looks very promising and it will be very interesting where this will lead to.
