Technology is developing at an incredible pace and so are the concepts of HMI as a consequence. One such technology envisaged by these concepts is augmented reality and its adaptation and implementation within the manufacturing industry where it is fast becoming a prominent feature. Pursuant to its innovation-driven approach, Progea now offers Augmented Reality solutions for HMI as showcased at recent trade fairs.
Progea’s vision is to create applications for wearable Augmented Reality devices, such as Microsoft’s HoloLens, SmartGlass Epson Moverio or Google Glass, to aid operators with real-time information from the Movicon supervision servers while wearing them. This new technology offers users a new interaction experience with systems that is more immediate and direct, improving efficiency, productivity and safety.
