Overview of event

What is the latest and greatest in Augmented Reality research at EPRI? Attend our annual face to face for  utility project members and anyone interested in discovering the value  this emergent technology offers for a myriad of applications. You will have a chance to review successes, lessons learned and bounce ideas off each other as our cohort continues to pioneer the way humans and computers interface to solve big problems spanning utility industries.

Attendees can expect to learn about the latest and greatest applications and efforts within Augmented, Mixed, and Virtual Reality in Electric Power and Utilities at large. Participants will learn what has worked, what isn’t working, and what remains to be attempted. Topics will range from application demonstrations with technical overviews to leaders sharing vision for the future of ‘Holograms’ and the newest headsets on the market.


Who Should Attend?

Anyone with Innovation, Emerging Tech, Technology Portfolio, R&D, Technology Evaluation, or CTO in the job title would benefit by seeing real world scenarios and get to ask their peers directly how their experience has been. Any project manager would benefit by seeing what has worked and what hasn’t.

Marketing groups within Utilities should see this as an opportunity to augment their brand.

Research directors will benefit by being able to evaluate if the EPRI program would be of use to them  in their evaluation of Augmented and Virtual Reality.

Additionally anyone working in compliance and adhering to government regulations is going to benefit by witnessing firsthand how the technology reduces error rates and reduces planning costs.
