In recent years, we have seen a rapid pace in growing technologies. While many technologies have come and gone without making much impact, augmented reality has been that one technology that has continued to be promising over the past years. Despite being a young technology, the growth of AR has skyrocketed and the AR market is predicted to grow to one billion users by the end of 2021.
Taking a look at the above statistics, it means that not only will be more companies adopting AR into their operations but there will be a rise in the number of companies specializing in AR. In the recent pandemic scenario where people and many businesses are finding it difficult to effectively communicate and engage with each other, augmented reality opens up a new door to do these.
Augmented Reality Trends to Watch out in 2021
Augmented with AI
For quite some time AR has been implemented with machine learning and artificial intelligence, the result of which is computer vision. This gives devices the ability to see and understand things within the camera range. This will be more sophisticated in the coming years with its applications rising in the healthcare and gaming sectors.
Growth in Mobile AR through 5G
5G is at our doorstep. Though it may take some time to get implemented everywhere, AR developers all around the world are working with 5G in mind. The reliable and faster connectivity will aid in providing users a smooth AR experience in remote assistance, AR navigation, AR wearables, and many more applications.
Augmented Reality in Expert Remote Assistance
AR-powered remote assistance is an emerging technology that allows technicians to solve issues on their own as well as allows them to connect with experts to visually guide them through the steps. XRmeet is one such AR remote assistance platform that allows you to connect with the expert at any time without having to wait. This finds its application mainly in this pandemic situation where face-to-face meetings and travelling are all a great risk.
In one of our previous blogs, we had mentioned the rising growth of AR-powered remote assistance during the pandemic. We believe that remote support powered by AR will get stronger by the end of 2021 and will remain even after the pandemic.
Augmented Reality in Indoor Navigation
Though we have seen AR’s potential in navigation, AR-based indoor navigation is an evolving technology that is mostly awaited by all and is predicted to experience tremendous growth in the coming years.
