Augmented Reality and wearable devices
In the upcoming Industry 4.0 era, new trends and technologies are radically transforming the contemporary working scenario. What is gathering force is an ecosystem where a new generation of adaptive softwares can perceive the environment by connecting to the user’s surrounding, recognizing relevant events and providing forecasts on future needs. This is called Context Computing Ecosystem and is changing rapidly the interaction paradigm of user-information: the information has to reach the user in the right place, at the right time, for the right purpose. Augmented Reality and wearable devices such as the Epson Moverio smart glasses are key points of this system: taking advantage of these elements is crucial to develop strategies and to reach new business opportunities.
