AUGMENTED REALITY USE CASESWe created an extensive list of selected AR use cases. Navigate through the topics below to learn more about current AR applications.
Medical students are using anatomically correct AR 3D models for study purposes and AR simulations to train for surgical procedures. Real surgeries, on the other hand, are using remote physicians to give guidance and share expertise that is shown on display in real time to the performing surgeon.
Handheld scanners are being used to project the estimated position of veins in patient’s bodies for increased accuracy when drawing blood. Doctors are providing better explanations about diagnosis and treatments through enriched AR content and Pharma companies are providing drug info in a 3D AR setting for a better understanding of medicament working mechanisms and dosage instructions.
Use of interactive AR books that include animated 3D models, sound, and engaging actions. Customizable printable AR worksheets, linked to the content of a specific lesson, for in-class usage, homework and study purposes. Enhancing field trip experiences with more information and interaction by visiting locations that have incorporated AR features.
JOURNALISM AND MASS COMMUNICATION
DESIGN AND MODELINGAs an alternative to pricey prototypes, designers are utilizing AR to create 3D models that can be viewed in the real world to better understand, modify, develop and present their projects.
ViewAR is a great example of AR applied in logistics for process optimization.
MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
