EON Reality Inc., a global powerhouse in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, confirmed to VRJournal today new EON AVR Platform functionality that will “enable non technical users to create augmented reality (AR) knowledge injections by attaching AR 3D Annotations to physical objects and environments in the real world supported by EON IoT sensor data, EON Geo positional tracking, and EON AI.”
So how does it work? The company tells us that workers and students are provided detailed AVR guidance on how to complete a complex task through visual cues and instructions.
As for any problems they may encounter, users can simply refer back to AVR instructions or connect, using EON Coliseum, with remote experts to get real-time assistance, with VOIP or live camera feed from the user’s device.
“Global organizations and governments need to improve productivity in order to cope with large turnover in the workforce due to age and the lack of trained labor,” said Dan Lejerskar, chairman of EON Reality.
“This situation,” he adds, “requires new ways of working that boosts job skills in order to address these employment gaps. EON AVR Knowledge Injection functionality accomplishes this by delivering the right knowledge at the right time. This knowledge is delivered in a visual AVR format, directly in the users line of sight, leaving the user’s hands free. This improves efficiency, productivity, and quality by combining the capabilities of man and machine.”
Mats Johansson, CEO and president of EON Reality, says his company doesn’t believe in a dystopian future in which AI and machines displace workers and dramatically increase income disparity. “We believe,” he says, “that AVR Knowledge Injections, will create a symbiotic relationship between humans and smart machines that augment a worker’s skills and improve performance, increase safety, and raise worker and student satisfaction. This combination of man and machine will outperform either working alone.”
