Augmented reality overlays physical assets with digital information— including schematics, instructions, annotations, and performance and condition status. AR is experienced across a range of video-enabled hardware, from touchscreen mobile devices to purpose-built wearable headsets. AR software provides several key functions, including target recognition which identifies and locks onto the correct physical assets, the projection of data overlays, and in some cases, the integration of real-time data.
