While virtual reality (VR) enthusiasm is moving slowly, AR is gaining more traction, and Los Angeles-based Daqri is trying to catch that wave by launching the Daqri Worksense Pro Subscription, a service that delivers AR software and hardware, including Daqri’s smart glasses.
Daqri Worksense is a productivity suite of AR applications that enables the most common AR tasks, helping organizations improve existing business processes.
“Augmented reality in an enterprise or industrial context needs to be able to clearly improve the solutions to existing problems in order to gain adoption.
This will then lead the leveraging of richer functions in AR as it matures,” said Ian Hughes, senior analyst for internet of things (IoT) at market researcher 451 Research, in a statement.
“It is also important for any implementation to integrate with existing systems and data.
The Daqri Worksense Suite provides common task solutions, such as remote worker support or guided work instructions, but also adds richer elements such as 3D environment scanning and model viewing in-situ.
