Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality: The Ultimate Game Changer In Industry 4.0
We are in the midst of the Information Age that's changing manufacturing massively. Over the last few years, more data
is generated than ever before. It does not apply to the amount of data generated, but to how the decision-making is
It is when intelligent connections are essential and has to be taken into considerations. One has to obtain the data at
the right time and in the proper sense. In the age of Industry 4.0, machinery and staff are related, thereby improving
the processes of the industry.
With this revolution, this relied not upon a single technology, but on various technologies. Augmented and Virtual
Reality are among these innovations.
Augmented Reality (AR)
In Industry 4.0, AR plays a critical role in selecting production components and submitting information about the status
of industrial failures to user-installed applications. Many businesses create software for providing employees with
real-time product details. They also develop intelligent applications that lead to decision making and enhanced working
Applications of AR in Industry 4.0 :
- Complex Assembly : Modern development includes the short-term, precision assembly of hundreds of complex components. In these dynamic
assemblies, enhanced reality will help. The documentation is usually in PDF/ TXT format, which is hard to get through.
Increased realism will help bring the video alive. They are straightforward, hand free and voice-controlled in the field
of sight. You have broken the instructions, and you should add the video. All this is seen by AR glasses as staff
maintain their hands on the job.
- Expert Assistance: An expert may need to visit the worksite in the event of a disrupted production process. Many technicians might be
available, but there are just a few experts. Augmented reality will reduce this cost and enable the specialist to see
things through a technician's eyes. It will aid to inspect them from all over the world. You also can direct the
technician on the function you might like.
- Maintenance: Maintenance is another field after assembly and assistance, in which augmented reality will have a decisive role. At
present, most employees manually check their maintenance with a manual. This method will take time and not be 100%
For instance, at Mitsubishi Electric builta technology platform that uses AR based on 3D models. It helps users to
ensure that the inspection sequence is complied with, and one can apply inspection results. In particular, one can check
the status of the computer only through glasses of AR that are a powerful maintenance tool.
Virtual Reality (VR)
Immersive VR solutions form the component of industry 4.0 and use a combination of hardware and software to transcend
the user into a digitally produced world. It opens different ways of designing creative solutions as production units
are equipped with intelligent devices, high connectivity, data intelligence and simulation equipment. It will increase
manufacturing capability and meet consumer needs. These improvements will help.
In times like Covid-19 , use of Augmented and Virtual Reality solutions has helped many enterprises to solve their key
business challenges to connect with their new and existing customers.
Applications of VR in Industry 4.0 :
- Industrial Training : In production and processing, one can handle many tactical situations as it meets many requirements in an industrial
setup. It contributes significantly to the excellence of the employees by offering successful VR training sessions that
are very important today. Based on proven case studies, VR-Training provides more than 70% performance compared to 25%
achieved from traditional school-based training.
- Factory Planning : During the construction or upgrade of a new plant, enormous design, testing and subsequent testing efforts are needed.
In these scenarios, virtual plants can help. You can test them as much as you like to indicate and correct the defects
in the whole system. The entire plant can be scratched and can make desirable improvements.
- Inspection: Trained experts can carry out virtual production processes, environment safety and regular inspections. With the fact of
virtual reality, it is simple for professionals to answer the tiny data.
- Hassle-Free Medical Training: What the world hopes and wants to deal with the pandemic is a high degree of medical awareness. Competency is thus
becoming important in medical school. Large-scale manufacture of medicines and equipment for life sciences is typically
subject to high human-machine risks. The operators can better understand the process through practical simulations of
sophisticated machinery and the production cycle.
Wrapping It Up
We at Aximind
provide businesses worldwide with solutions for Virtual Reality and Augmented reality in their sales,
operations and customer services. The combination of these technologies will enhance the efficiency, productivity and
New technological challenges are created by the Industry 4.0, and the combined AR and VR, which is otherwise known as MR
(Mixed Reality), will enhance the customer experience.
Users enter an augmented world due to the obscurity of virtual facts in the physical world by Augmented Reality. It
ensures that both the physical and can link the virtual world to the user and data and statistics are accessible in
real-time. Now the Virtual world isn’t anymore a reel world, it is a new experience which has created a new world in
