Some people confuse AR with virtual reality. Virtual reality (VR) is a complete immersive experience that shuts out the real world. Augmented reality superimposes a computer generated (CGI) video onto a camera captured video.
Despite the fact that many commercial enterprises are already leveraging new technologies like virtual-and augmented reality (AR)-to unlock productivity and growth, this technology has yet to reach widespread adoption across the manufacturing sector.
Malek Murison for Internet of Business: Telepresence robotics and virtual reality are two exciting technologies, and by combining the two in a relatively inexpensive way, engineers at MITs Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed a smarter and safer manufacturing tool.
Develop new robotic capabilities with ROS 2 for VxWorks. ROS 2 for VxWorks® project provides custom modifications and build scripts to integrate the Robot Operating System 2 (ROS 2) framework with VxWorks 7. ROS 2 is a set of software libraries and tools that aid in building robot applications. Build ROS 2 for VxWorks using 1) with a VxWorks SDK that is available on the site under a free non-commercial use license; or via 2) with a commercially-licensed VxWorks product.
