As AR-driven spatial computing makes its way into industrial workplace settings through real-time step-by-step instructions and remote mentoring, even the most complex and intricate tasks will no longer require extensive experience to manage and complete them effectively.

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital transformation strategies in many industries, ushering in foundational changes that likely would have taken five to 10 years to occur otherwise, but there are many areas that have remained on the sidelines of this revolution. Consider the dozens of industries reliant on skilled manual labor.

While organizations may have data on when a task was started and when it was completed through existing work management software, traditionally, there has been no way to measure and track overall efficiency and effectiveness in industrial workforce settings. However, we’re on the cusp of tremendous change, thanks to augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI) and the dawn of spatial computing.
