Augmented reality has been in use for many years, originating in 1950’s and has made quite a lot of progress since then. The technology is used in CAD programs for architecture, navigation, aircraft assembly, military, simulation and medical procedures. Complicated tasks including maintenance and assembly can be simplified to support training and the prototypes of the products can be imitated without even manufacturing them. Complete immersion brings you the ultimate interactive virtual experience of AR and it is indeed the amalgamation of live surroundings and digital software that build scenes in real time, escalating what you visualise to link you with the physical and digital world.
Like earlier when the internet brought a revolution to the society where there were only a couple of people who were mostly captivated by the novelty of being able to beam information around the world instantly and not many sites were present but with time the content expanded and engulfed everyone in its circle. Similarly, AR is almost everywhere now. Its use in sales and marketing is particularly appealing and have a high viral potential because of its engaging, cool and interactive results. An AR system generates a composite view for the user that is a combination of a virtual scene created by the computer and the real scene viewed by the user, that enhances the scene with some more data. The aim of AR is to build such an environment where the users cannot differentiate between the real and the virtual world and this is being widely practiced in many segments like military training, entertainment, manufacturing, engineering design, robotics and other industries. Augmented reality (AR) is completely transforming the face of enterprises and developers for these fields. Instead of limited, stand-alone applications, AR creates a bold user experience and offers exclusive occasions for rapid adoption in the industry. By combining AR with IoT and machine learning, industries can improve their customer experiences, services, manufacturing and engineering of products and operations.
