AR Solutions at Work

Technology Track  (Great America 1-2 – Second Floor)

Steven Feiner (Columbia Uni.) – for job task training and assistance

Applying AR to maintenance and repair tasks could make it possible for customized instructions and assistance to be embedded directly within the task domain. This can eliminate the need to refer to separate documentation, and improve the speed and quality with which tasks can be accomplished. This talk will discuss research done at Columbia University on developing AR systems for maintenance and repair, and evaluating them in comparison with current approaches to guiding workers.
