Is now the time to invest in enterprise AR/VR and wearables or is the technology still too young and unproven to place big bets on? When will we see clear ROI?

This session takes a big picture look at the enterprise AR/VR and wearable tech space, addressing the reasons why enterprises can no longer afford to completely ignore this new category of technology.

  • What are the concrete opportunities for AR/VR and wearables in the workplace today?
  • Progress of the industry over the past year: What does success look like in 2019?
  • Current capabilities and shortcomings: Recent improvements and remaining challenges?
  • What developments or trends are on the horizon?

While there are many continually improving hardware platforms, AR/VR and wearable application development poses significant obstacles to further advancement of the technology. In this session, enterprise experts examine the state of available software/content solutions and the challenges of developing industry-ready applications.

  • Features/capabilities of enterprise-ready software applications
  • Considerations and challenges for building enterprise AR/VR and wearable apps:
    • Understanding the UX/UI requirements in an industrial setting
    • Field of view (FOV): Screen real estate, display and other hardware limitations
    • Battery, memory and computing power limitations
    • Lack of standardization
    • Security and integration with existing networks and systems
  • Content creation: Translating ERMs, PDFs, 2D diagrams, manuals, machine data, etc. into digital, wearable-ready formats
    • The CAD advantage and the need for easy 3D content
