CRIT proposes a moment of confrontation on the topic of Augmented Reality, with the aim of discussing the pros and cons of the tools tested by its members and to reason together about the maturity of the technology and the possible implications in the industrial sector.
Augmented Reality represents the frontier of interaction between man and machine and occupies a key role in the implementation of the Smart Factory. In the context of Digital Manufacturing, Augmented Reality is in fact imposing itself as a tool for user involvement in collaborative design and operator training in a virtual, immersive and realistic environment.
The growing interest in technology, combined with the rapid evolution of ICT technologies, has led to the proliferation of platforms and tools available to developers. However, some open questions slow down its widespread use, especially in the industrial sector, where the requirements of fluidity, safety and experience of the user play a significant role.
Two non-trivial themes that we intend to deepen in the course of the meeting concern workflows for the creation of new applications using the software provided by suppliers, and the problem of the integration of Augmented Reality platforms with corporate IT tools (in particular CAD and PLM).
