Accelerating the Usage of AR and VR Technologies

Technology is evolving at a faster pace than the public’s adaptation to the same. There hence are several facets of technology which haven’t been largely explored yet. Good examples of this are Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. Their implementation is currently limited to federal government agencies such as defense, space exploration and scientific research. However, several other enterprises in both the public as well as private sectors can benefit from these technological concepts. They can be used to automate processes, reduce human-to-human contact and increase productivity; especially during times of pandemics or disasters such as the recent Covid-19 outbreak. SGS Technologie understands this as we are a software development company headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida with 17+ years of experience. We have a team of subject matter experts who are well-versed in AR and VR technologies.

This post has been prepared to provide better clarity on the concepts and how they can be useful to various industries.

What is AR and VR?

Augmented Reality (AR) is the integration of digital information with the user's environment in real time.

That is, AR enables the integration or inducement of computer graphics, images, videos, sounds or more into real life. With AR, one need not use a system or platform to view graphics, multimedia and for communication. AR blends the impact of visual and/or audible technology into real life.

For this, AR uses images or video clips captured with devices, along with localization, mapping and depth tracking. With these elements, cameras will collect, send and process data in order to display digital content that matches what a user seeks. This innovation can be very useful for advance planning as would be required in the Armed Forces or Civil Construction Authorities. AR applications can

Virtual reality is a simulated experience that can be resemble or be completely different from the real world.

In simpler terms, Virtual Reality introduces an artificial world inside the real world. For example, a replica of a battlefield can be created by collecting photographs and clippings of the area along with GIS mapping. These details can be integrated in an AR application which creates simulations on what soldiers and others can expect while they visit the scene. Strategies can be devised in advance.

Industries that can Benefit from AR and VR

Healthcare: There could be several instances in this sector in which immediate advice or recommendations on medicine, methods of treatment and expert opinions are required. The recent Covid-19 pandemic is an apt situation to explain this. It has generated the need for asynchronous healthcare which is a form of telemedicine that removes the necessity for for face-to-face appointments in managing and monitoring chronic health conditions. Hence developing AR/VR technologies for healthcare organization can enable remote assessment and diagnosis of patients’ miles away.

Real Estate: The use of AR/VR technologies can facilitate communication and collaboration between engineers’ architects, clients, and even authorities. One method is virtual co-location of the teams making it possible to transfer messages and work cultures.As mentioned in the beginning of this post, allstakeholders will be enabled a virtual walk-through inside the project before it is built. This will reduce errors, facilitate faster and better decision-making, and achieve greater business and profitability.

Law Enforcement & Security: Facial recognition tools can be integrated with AR/VR to facilitate immediate scanning of identities. This can be of incredible assistance while ensuring that no anti-social elements are left wandering freely within the public. For instance, verifying documents like passports and/or checking the backgrounds of people traveling in-and-out of the region wouldn’t be necessary anymore. It can be done in seconds within AR/VR integrated with face recognition to generate details of that person immediately in real-time.

AR/VR can also assist the Armed Forces, details of which have already been described in the beginning of this post. In conclusion, AR/VR is a technological concept that has immense potential left to explore. But this needs the right AR/VR development company. Reach out to SGS Technologie for more discussions.
