The shift in pipeline and workflow as a result of immersive technologies (specifically AR rather than VR)


Creating a virtual presence to interact with others on a shared task



Using ar to control robots across long distances




Museums/ visitor attractions – visually replicate historical moments/ battles etc. where the users can freely explore an area/ interact with virtual objects etc. i.e. go to some historical ruins and see what the structures looked like 1000’s of years ago



AR can be used to assist surgeons when performing operations –  displaying scans, medical history etc.


Has been used in training simulations to replicate haptic feedback in surgeries.


Virtually mapping component information/ details onto an object

i.e. looking at conduit will not tell you much information about e.g. is it an electrical or gas conduit but by using AR we can set specific information about it e.g. it is an electrical conduit that contains the cabling for the emergency backup power etc.


Fault finding

Combining sensors with AR to virtually replicate activity within a system

i.e. checking the flow of water through a plumbing system, AR could take the flow data and replicate it in a visual manner 

Types of AR

Marker based (QR codes etc.)

Markerless (GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth etc.)

Projection based - Projecting artificial light onto real-world surfaces 

Superimposed - partially of fully replaces the original view of an object with a newly augmented view.
