Here at ARize, we have utilised AR technology to allow our partners to create immersive extended reality experiences, with just their smartphones; no apps or additional software are needed. It’s fully accessible to everyone who wants to partake, and anyone can use it. But, we’re not the only ones using AR to disrupt the tech space; AR is finding applications in other industries worldwide. Today, we’re going to look at industries that use AR and are expected to go far in 2022.
AR in Manufacturing
Manufacturing has plenty of complex tasks and processes that require precise and accurate decisions and actions within very tight turnaround times. Through AR technology, helping the workforce through remote support makes it quicker and easier to collaborate and make these decisions and carry them out. Using AR, experts and managers can give real-time instructions to site workers, and even show them how the job or task needs to be done.
Many site workers have issues getting to grips with machines or combatting machine failures, breakdowns, etc. Through AR, downtime due to issues can be reduced, saving time and money.
AR in Education
AR is set to revolutionise the field of education, making it more engaging for staff as well as for students.
Teachers can use AR to create immersive worlds to teach children in a more creative and engrossing way, mainly through 3D modelling. It can replace the traditional way of learning and allow children to experience education in a totally new way, whether on a virtual field trip to the Louvre in Paris or giving an inside look at the human body and how organs work. This type of visual learning could help a lot of children to see exactly what it is they need to know, helping those who also find it difficult to retain knowledge in the current system of teaching.
AR in Healthcare
The healthcare industry is embracing AR as a tool that can improve the knowledge and understanding of both patients and staff. From helping medical students to learn with AR environments of the human body and cell structures, to showing patients exactly what is wrong with them and what needs to be done, there is a whole wealth of opportunities augmented reality can give the healthcare industry.
It can also help innovate by allowing surgeons to view patient anatomy in AR environments, to practice surgeries, or show other surgeons procedures in real time, allowing them to assist with advice, and by letting specialists view accurate representations of a patient’s anatomy, allowing them to diagnose and move forward with research on unknown diseases much quicker.
AR in Travel
Many countries are embracing AR to enhance their tourism industries, and this is only set to continue in 2022, making tourist experiences even more special. Tourists can now take fully interactive AR tours of an area before they visit or while they’re in their hotel, meaning they can see where they are visiting and plan their trips accordingly.
Even before going on holiday, people can take 360-degree tours of places they plan to visit, helping them make informed visits of which countries they want to see, which areas they want to go to and what to expect when they are there.
AR is disrupting industries left, right, and centre, and this is only going to continue as the tech becomes more advanced and more accessible to everyone.
