AUGMENTED REALITY AND THE UTILITY INDUSTRY

Digital disruption is driving the next wave of technological evolution, and the utility sector is no exception. According to ABI Research, augmented reality (AR) is expected to balloon into a $100 billion industry by 2020.The imminent appearance of AR in the marketplace will benefit the power utilities and other enterprises that have thought through both the value and the implications for their traditional practices. Bringing AR to utility field personnel can provide an excellent way of presenting data when and where it’s most needed. These tools also enable greater leveraging of institutional knowledge in a very effective manner, bridging the gap between new talent and seasoned personnel.
