Top 3 Applications for Wearable Technology and Augmented Reality in Automotive

The top 3 applications for Wearable technology and Augmented Reality in the Automotive Industry are discussed, in a recent guest article by Randy Nunez of The Ford Motor Company, that appeared on a blog post from BrainXchange (AREA Member).

Nunez outlines what he believes are the top three use cases for Wearable technology and Augmented Reality in Automotive. The top three are:

  • Guided Instructions – Adding digital or virtual content while in the real world to provide step-by-step instructions for procedures or workflows is a key use case
  • Remote Expert – Using smart eyewear in conjunction with video/audio collaboration software can connect local users with remote experts to provide real-time guidance
  • Design Visualization – Visual 3D representation of a vehicle design can include physical prototypes made of clay or wood.  This can be expensive and time-consuming to create and modify.

Randy will be speaking on a panel about applications for Smart Glasses and other head work devices on Thursday 11 May at the Spring Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit 2017 in San Diego, CA.
