What is Augmented Reality?

Augmented Reality (AR) is a new technology that, through a series of sensors and devices, superimposes three-dimensional or two-dimensional images on the real world to enhance objects and provide important information to the end user.

 

How does Augmented Reality improve fieldwork execution?

Augmented Reality improves fieldwork execution as it provides work units with step-by-step procedure guides, relevant information about the task to complete, and live remote assistance from technicians with more experience.

 

What elements should be taken into account to implement augmented reality in fieldwork management?

To implement Augmented Reality, you should take into account elements such as resistance to change on the part of senior workers, as well as the high costs of the hardware and software required to achieving a successful deployment of this technology. These factors are the cause of the low number of satisfactory deployments of AR in utility and telecommunication companies.
