IET factfile: Through the looking glass

The IET and the High Value Manufacturing Catapult have published a joint Insight Report looking at the expansion of augmented reality (AR) technology from the consumer world into the industrial sector.

Titled Through the looking glass – The rise of augmented reality and its role in the future of manufacturing, the paper reveals how and why AR is being seen as one of the emerging technologies that businesses across industry can utilise to gain a competitive edge.

The report sets out to investigate the rapidly changing AR landscape; understand the technical and business challenges facing both AR providers and industry adopters; follow the contours of the market and policy environment; and identify the risks and benefits in early adoption for UK industry and advanced manufacturing in particular.
