Innovations with AR, MR, and VR
With Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg hailing these technologies as the ‘next big things’ in the world of the Internet, we are yet to witness their performances to compete for potentials. Let’s just say, Virtual and Augmented Reality will soon become an integral part of online operations.
On that note, it is time for us to take a look at how AR, VR, and MR, are being leveraged by industrial companies. A quick look at the various use cases of these technologies will divulge the scenario in a better way.

1.Simplifying critical and complex tasks: Initiatives by Boeing
Augmented Reality plays a remarkable role in overlaying instructions. As one of the leading aviation manufacturing company, Boeing has cut down their error possibilities to a great extent. By leveraging AR technology, experts at Boeing are installing electrical wiring on an aircraft is a complex task that leaves zero room for error. That’s why Boeing is testing augmented reality as a possible solution to give technicians real-time, hands-free, interactive 3D wiring diagrams and designs.
2. Introducing immersive experiences: Airbus innovations
Creating a virtual world and augmented environment can lead to multiple benefits. Airbus, another commercial aircraft manufacturing giant, has embraced the idea of implementing AR/VR/MR technologies to introduce a holographic application. Customization and configuration of cabin space is possible in real-time. which will act as a key to create immersive experiences for their engineers. The opportunity to impart lessons through shared 3D modules and holographic coach will also make the entire experience engaging. For customers, employees and other stake holders.

3. Manufacturing vehicles and cars: GM embraces VR
General Motors (GM), the car manufacturing behemoth, took a step further and decided to integrate Virtual Reality in their existing production processes. The prime emphasis was to create an immersive and real-time virtual environment. The manufacturers can see this particular data on a large projection screen, or Cave Automatic Virtual Environment (CAVE). An immersive virtual reality environment will help engineers and designers assess, view, and modify a considerable amount of variants. Quite naturally, that will boost the entire manufacturing process in a new way.
