The best applications of augmented reality for construction and manufacturing are simple, reliable and integrated into existing processes and practices with minimal disruption for the end user.
Augmented Reality was first used by engineers at Boeing to describe a system for assisting with manufacturing aircraft. Image credits: Caudell, T. P., and D. W. Mizell. “Augmented Reality: An Application of Heads-up Display Technology to Manual Manufacturing Processes.” System Sciences 1992.
In most cases this means keeping holographic content to a minimum and at arms length where it can be intuitively and correctly interpreted as a spatial guide. The following considerations should be taken into account when planning to new applications of augmented reality:
