Visionary Seminar: Augmented Reality in Manufacturing
07-06-2018 :: imec, Kapeldreef 75, Leuven

Organizer: Leuven Mindgate

The majority of us have probably already come into contact with some kind of Augmented Reality (AR), be it through Pokemon Go or the IKEA app. We have seen how convincing and natural the addition of computer-generate elements to a real image can be.
AR offers many as-yet unplumbed possibilities for production: monitoring & control, maintenance, operator support, and so on.

At present, AR is still in its infancy and we expect many new technical possibilities and applications. In this visionary seminar we explore how AR can be used in production environments, including what already is possible and especially what will be possible in the coming years.

The interventions will be held in English.
