Augmented Reality can change AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) and other sectors of industry 4.0. The key and the remaining challenge are to register real & virtual worlds automatically and reliably. In AEC, AR is a powerful tool perfectly matched to new BIM (building information modelling) processes: AR tablets/headsets can be connected to evolving models via the cloud/IoT (in & between offices & job sites); AR can be used to communicate with clients & on-site crews, and to enable brainstorming between designers, even far apart. Other use cases in industry are design (to superpose a car model to a real car and to sit in it), production (to give assembly instructions), maintenance & repair (to similarly guide), distribution (to assist workers in moving in a warehouse & “pickers” in finding objects).
