Augmented reality glasses could replace staff training — from stuff.co.nz by Madison Reidy
Excerpt (emphasis DSC):
In five years, anyone could put on a pair of augmented reality glasses and know how to work a factory, an augmented reality company claims.
Los Angeles based company Daqri International recently released its ‘smart glasses’ for factory floor staff.
Daqri general manager Paul Sweeney said that when the technology became mainstream, it would get rid of engineering education.
“In the next five years or so we will probably not have classroom training, they will just have training on their head, on the job.”
Auckland based Fisher & Paykel Production Machinery (PML) has taken to the trend and added augmented reality tasks to its factory’s maintenance system.
PML industry 4.0 technology manager John West said it made its unskilled factory floor workers “instant experts”.
