AIM2LEARN: Employing Multiple Realities (XR: AR, VR and MR/HR) in Manufacturing

The role of multiple realities has been growing rapidly in engineering applications including manufacturing. This webinar looks into extended reality (XR) via its components: augmented, virtual, and mixed or hybrid reality (AR, VR and MR/HR), their applications in manufacturing, and associated hardware and software tools. Uses of XR in product design feasibility, process and assembly improvements, safety, and training will be covered with help from case studies. The webinar will conclude with possible future extension of multiple realities into other areas including digital/virtual twins.

Key Takeaways

•               Understanding XR via its components: AR, VR and MR/HR, their applications, and associated hardware and software tools.

•               Understanding successful of examples of XR in manufacturing industries

•               Understanding future opportunities

Who Should Attend?

Technical and non-technical staff and executives from small-, medium-, and large-scale manufacturers are encouraged to attend.
