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.
Recently, the manufacturing sector has discovered the potential of AR and VR in cutting costs and increasing safety and productivity. But what exactly are the applications of this revolutionary technologies in the factory?
In manufacturing, a MR system can indicate the name and attribution of parts by displaying virtual labels overlaying the objects. The system can guide an assembler, showing virtual arrows as to where the part goes into an assembly.
Emulate3D software helps you model and test your AMHS solutions rapidly. Use Demo3D to create running models quickly, then generate videos, stills, or view the models in virtual reality at the click of a button. Sim3D enables you to carry out experimental test runs to select optimal solutions and the most robust operating strategy, and Emulate3D Controls Testing is the best way to debug your PLCs offline, and off the project's critical path. Connect to major PLCs, import CAD, and plug into HTC Vive and Oculus Rift to produce awesome models!
