Another industry where the use of AR is justified is electronics and any complex equipment manufacture, as well as the repair of such devices. In this case, AR will facilitate the collaboration of high-level specialists and their less qualified colleagues on a remote advisory basis. An ordinary master, using augmented reality, will be able to receive instructions from an engineer to manufacture or repair a complex device.
The use of AR is possible in robotics. Thus, AR can be useful for robot path planning. Working with augmented reality, engineers will be able to develop routes that with the help of robots will effectively explore those surfaces that are inaccessible to humans. These can be the surfaces of other planets, caves, ocean floors and other locations difficult or dangerous for a human to be.
By the way, using augmented reality for logistics purposes in other areas is still unjustified (but only for now — Harvard Business Review assumes
a great future for AR technologies in logistics). Given the development cost, now it's more profitable for a business to hire operators rather than create new, technically sophisticated equipment with AR functionality.
