“Industry 4.0” and “Smart Factories” initiatives have created expectations for implementation of Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Realities (AR, VR, MR) with little explanation of the desired effect of employing the technology.

When should we use augmented reality? Will AR achieve the same benefits as VR? What extended reality (xR) platform best addresses your engineering needs?

In this session, we will define these disparate technologies and work together to identify where they apply to your enterprise.
