Augmented Reality now seems to become an integral part of daily lives as it has been used from try-on before purchasing products to performing intricate surgery. This year, the world has seen tremendous leaps in AR technologies from market players. Considering reports, the installed user base for AR-enabled mobile devices reached 1.5 billion by mid-2019.
Now, as we have approached the end of the year 2019, there are huge expectations that will drive enterprise AR technologies in 2020. So, let’s see the top enterprise AR trends that will take place in the coming year.
Advanced AR Hardware
For the last few years, augmented reality has changed the way of living and performing businesses as well. It has the ability to revolutionize the way architects, engineers, and the construction industry collaborate. Thus, to make so more effective, AR hardware began making their way into the marketplace, especially smaller and higher-resolution displays and new chipsets custom-designed for AR and mixed reality devices. Companies like Apple, Sony, Samsung, and Syndiant have now been developing tiny displays intended to deliver more pixels and greater holographic depth inside wearables.
Next Generation AR with Enhanced Wi-Fi Capabilities
In the coming year, AR is expected to free up users from the limitations of current AR headsets with new, robust wireless solutions. It is also predicted that most augmented reality devices will adopt Wi-Fi 6 capability, also known as 802.11ax, as the next-generation standard in connecting computers and phones to indoor networks, and high-bandwidth accessories to the same devices and networks. It was originally developed in response to the rising number of devices across the world. In this way, Wi-Fi 6 routers are becoming increasingly plenteous, enabling the sort of steadily high data rates XR headsets need.
AR Influenced by AI
As AR and AI are two of the most distinct and promising technologies, integrating them will create unique experiences. AI models have gotten extremely good at doing many of the things required to build immersive AR experiences. It is the key to enable AR to interact with the physical environment in a multidimensional way. AI also gives capabilities like real-world object tagging, allowing an AR system to envisage the appropriate interface for a person in a given virtual environment. Through these and other possibilities, AI enhances AR to create a multidimensional and responsive virtual experience that can bring people new levels of insight and creativity.
Improved AR Software
As augmented reality is still in its nascent phase, it provides certain advantages to businesses compared to other software. AR software works alongside devices like phones, tablets, headsets, among others. These integrating devices encompass sensors, digital projectors, and the apt software that gives the ability to these computer-generated objects to be projected into the real world. AR software provides a wide range of advantages to businesses, including Product overview, Training, Enhanced content, Customer engagement, and productivity. Some AR developers are now turning to build new software, for instance, Nreal has recently joined hand with Deutsche Telekom and KDDI to create enterprise and potentially consumer use cases for its affordable Light glasses.
