How many realities can you have in industrial automation?

White Paper Published By: Schneider Electric

Type:  White Paper

The fourth industrial revolution is well underway. It focuses on digital transformation and creation of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). A key part of this revolution is technology that enables new realities—including virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR).

These new realities are already being applied in industrial settings and are poised to grow exponentially in the next few years. Common use cases include deploying augmented reality to dramatically decrease maintenance costs and rapidly expedite the learning curve of new hires.

Those companies that adopt these new technologies have the potential to realize significant financial benefits, to differentiate themselves, and to create a competitive advantage.

This storyscape dives into use cases for each type of reality and presents the benefits of each in relation to industrial automation. Contained in the storyscape is also an in-depth webinar on the subject given by Simone Gianotti, US EcoStruxure Industry Business Development Manager, Schneider Electric.
