What can Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality contribute in conjunction with the IoT?
The benefits of IoT have been around for a long time and we use them even in people's everyday lives.
The problem lies above all in the management of the information received and even more so in how we visualize this data.
Virtual reality and augmented reality are the last links in the process optimization chain but it is what allows us to visualize the information generated by the IoT modules, interact with the processes and make decisions based on what we are seeing. .
Regarding the use through augmented reality, by means of a smartphone, tablet or augmented reality glasses, we can point to a sensorized asset to receive its information in real-time.
The use of virtual reality allows us to immerse ourselves in a digital environment where we would find the sensorized asset. Once inside this environment, we can view the information extracted from the asset, interact with it, view graphs of its activity, or even introduce the asset as part of a training or maintenance process.
In addition, a plant with IoT modules allows us to obtain information from it without having to be there, we could have a technician from an office anywhere in the world or from home monitoring the plant.
