Training and on-boarding of new technicians and engineers can be a costly and time consuming task for many organisations. Augmented Reality headsets can be used to reduce this significantly in two main ways.
Many studies have shown significant reductions in training time by using Augmented Reality as the wearer can experience the real-world objects that they need to understand but with augmented overlays to show different states and scenarios which need to be understood. This real world learning is much realer and intuitive to the technician.
Moving information to the headset
Much of the learning required by new technicians and engineers comes down becoming familiar with the large volume of assets they will need to interact. Furthermore these assets often have small differences or issues which the technician or engineer needs to become familiar with. Augmented Reality allows this information to be loaded into the headset and made available to the wearer as part of the training and again when the information is needed during an event.
