The current virtual reality in the industry: VR/AR Efficiency and Safety
Today, carry-on technology has the strongest impact on logistics and distribution. The smart headsets can facilitate the process of collecting, packing, storing and shipping goods and they are much more powerful than the scan gun.
The use of virtual and augmented reality in the industry for providing health services will, in the future, provide a guarantee to improve diagnostic results and reduce costs.
With the use of VR smart headsets and industrial AR applications you can take advantage of a wide range of data sources to solve complex tasks, improve training / conformity and provide access to specialists remotely, all by optimizing time and leveraging with limited resources from a working group, which was, until now, very expensive.
Who uses VR and AR technologies for current industry processes?
The main Oil and Gas companies were the first to adopt the smart Headsets, with a wide range of applications for field services, training, simulation and virtual and augmented reality training, system operations, as well as for scientific and laboratory uses.
Industry 4.0: Functional requirements that any system should have.
Visibility of the state of the system
The app keeps users informed of what is happening, of the effects the user’s action has had or is having.
Correspondence between the system and the real world
The app must speak the language of the user with familiar words, phrases and concepts, following the conventions of the real world and displaying the information in natural, hierarchical and logical order.
User’s control and freedom
To make sure that users don’t feel closed, they need «emergency exits». Eg.: «Cancel» button always present and clearly visible.
Coherence and standards
The same words, the same commands, the same actions should appear in the same location, in the same order and produce the same effects in equivalent situations. The app must follow the most consolidated standards (for a complete list of the principles of the UX design consult IOS Human Interface Guidelines). Eg.: The iPhone search command is traditionally placed horizontally/upwards.
Use mandatory functions that prevent the execution of incorrect actions.
Recognition rather than remembrance
Minimize the user’s memory load and reduce as much as possible the information to be kept in mind. The instructions for using the app will be visible or readily available when appropriate.
Help the remote operator to recognize, diagnose and solve errors through infographics and recognizable icons.
Allow the attendant operator to reconsider their actions, to make visible the history of the actions they have taken, to provide the error messages expressed in a simple language that accurately indicates the problem and possible solutions.
