There is ample scope for augmented reality to create a powerful presence in the world of indoor navigation. Yes, whenever you visit large malls, shopping complexes, hospitals, or even universities, it is quite a task to find out where exactly your destination is located. Augmented reality has the potential to make indoor navigation easy and convenient through the use of real-time directions.
3) AR-enabled manufacturing
Augmented reality has the capability to streamline the manufacturing process, thereby resulting in enhanced productivity and lowered downtime. The future of AR in manufacturing would also involve training of several new employees, both within the country and overseas as well. AR-based training materials would enable the workforce to learn how to handle the new machinery and equipment safely. This would ensure complete safety in the manufacturing process.
