Traditionally, people have used paper and digital manuals to interact with machines. Immersion takes the user interface to a whole new level.
An augmented instruction dialogue with text, image, video or annotations can be superimposed directly on the product and operated using an AR headset, hand gestures, and voice commands.
As a result, users with devices or wearing smart glasses will be able to simply gaze at or point to a product to activate the augmented user interface and operate it.
A worker wearing smart glasses, for instance, will be able to walk a line of factory machines, see their performance parameters, and adjust each machine without feeling the need to refer to paper or digital manuals.
In more technical terms, doing a task is referred to as AR Procedural Guidance.
