Unprecedented access to data means we must literally change the way we view that information – as much as 1TB per day in a large factory.
That 1TB includes product manuals, code, P&ID diagrams, user manuals, recipes, maintenance manuals and collaborative discussions – all in a multivendor environment.
It’s unrealistic to assume the displays we have today will serve this need in the future.
Big data requires big visualization.
Augmented Reality, Endless Possibilities
The possibilities presented by head-mounted devices and augmented reality (AR), enabled for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), offer an enormous opportunity for productivity gains.
AR technology superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world. And while many of our discussion around the IIoT focus on connected device data and the decision-making it enables, many companies still see this as a future state.
