Allan Thompson - Leap Australia
Augmented Reality (AR) in Manufacturing
Allan will provide an overview of Augmented Reality (AR) technology and how it is used to enhance the design, manufacturing and in-service stages of products and manufacturing processes. Case studies will explain the insights and productivity benefits provided by AR in the manufacturing process – utilising IoT connectivity to overlay real-time data on equipment to be viewed in-context throughout a manufacturing plant, with measurable benefits to training of new staff and in providing feedback on faults and remedies to maintenance technicians. Allan will include live demonstrations of how to create and interact with AR using both the Microsoft Hololens and consumer smartphones/tablets. Join us to learn how AR can be easily incorporated into your existing design and manufacturing processes to provide immediate and tangible benefits.
