How Augmented Reality Converges With AI And The Internet Of Things

Internet of Things is on the rise; however, one of the most exciting about IoT technology niches is its intersection with AR. Rapid technological change is transforming new digital reality throughout the global economy. The powerful world of IoT solutions continues to establish itself as the definitive topic of discussion among the stalwarts in the technology domain, and the world seems to be at a cusp of convergence of some of the most advanced technologies.

Just a few years ago, the discussion was around mobile taking over. In the recent times that soon turned into reality with some of the biggest brands turning completely into mobile based business models. Example, Facebook makes 84% of its advertising revenue from mobile and as of February 2017 has 1.2 billion daily users.

However, moving forward this will soon be replaced with augmented reality devices like smart wearable glasses.


What is Augmented Reality?

Augmented Reality Technology brings elements of the virtual world, into the reality by enhancing the things that are seen, heard and felt. Augmented Reality superimposes digitally rendered image into real world surroundings. Remember the Facebook AR/VR?

The technology has proven very useful when tied with location based technology for daily requirements. Example several mobile applications can show nearest restaurant outlets, traffic status for a particular distance or try a particular product by viewing its implementation on an actual case without purchasing it.

Organisations like L’Oreal, Ikea, Johnson tiles have also used Augmented Reality Apps to showcase and sell their products to the customers in an engaging and novel way. Customers react positively to such fun and memorable marketing through augmented reality technology.

How is Augmented Reality different from AI and Internet of Things

Augmented Reality Apps helps seeing reality with some virtual environment over it like Pokémon Go. The Pokémon’s are virtual and augments one reality by using a phone camera. AR can be experienced through smart phone mobile applications and glasses.

At the same time, AI involves making artificial programs intelligent. Example, while playing chess against the computer as an opponent, the computer plays the game using artificial intelligence. It calculates the best possible and probable moves to be executed by a device based on algorithms registered in the system and supported by previous records.

While Internet of Things is an ecosystem of connected physical objects that can be accessed through the Internet. With built in sensors that have the ability to collect and transfer data automatically can be used to monitor a person’s heart, automobile or create a smart home.

AR convergence with AI and IoT

When all the three computing trends are converged, it enables us with huge capabilities to build brilliant products.

Internet of Things assists in collecting the data and transforming it into information, AI learns and predicts suitable actions to be taken and Augmented Reality is about the work, with that information in a form that allows you to visualize it.

Example, through AR dashboards, machinery assisting line operators can access real time information from an IoT application connected engine or receive instruction on how to maintain a particular piece of machinery. AR will be able to provide the ability to see information inside the connected product. With such data, organizations will be able to provide relevant and contextual instructions to users while they are operating, inspecting or servicing a product.

Artificial intelligence technology will allow organizations means of exposing intelligence in a manner that’s highly consumable and make it more proficient for employees while making the process safer. When plugged with artificial intelligence will be able to recommend or execute certain tasks automatically thus improving the efficiency and productivity of the organization.
