Technology Focus: How Could Augmented Reality Change Working in Rail?
Augmented Reality (AR) is an interactive composition of both, physical and digital elements. AR technology has the potential to improve productivity and safety of the workforce and may bring additional benefits for business development.
Many industries are showing an increased interest in the applications of AR. This includes the rail industry, for example High Speed 2 (HS2) has launched an AR training programme for station staff and researchers are beginning to build integrated Internet of Things systems, suitable for AR enabled monitoring and maintenance.
