Today, as digital transformation contributes to the global economy more deeply, innovation has become significant part of daily routine. Alongside other trending technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies have a profoundly transformative effect on the way we live and work.

The following articles showcases disruptive trends in AR/VR that will reform the digital transformation in the coming years, in different sectors. For over two decades, Mobile programming LLC, has been at par delivering digital transformation expertise to various sectors of the Fortune 500 ecosystem.

AR/VR improving Healthcare Industry

AR/VR will play a major role in advancing the healthcare industry as well. AR and VR have already begun making inroads into surgical suites, medical training, doctor's offices, and home care situations. Immersive VR games, movies, and exercise scenarios for use in clinical settings and at home. The logic is that the transportive experience of VR can virtually whisk patients away and encourage specific behaviours that can be hard to repeat in sterile hospital environments. Every move a patient makes is analysed and quantified, which enables patients and clinicians to, capture baselines, track recovery, and utilize new information to personalize treatment. Oculus VR: In Oct, 2018 Two companies Oculus and VR teamed up for a joint venture that helps the patients to experience less pain during chemotherapy and also alleviates their anxiety.

Mobile programming LLC has been working with major healthcare giants over the years to develop AR/VR applications can be used in telemedicine, remote monitoring and pre/post-surgery enabling a more intuitive mode of interacting with information, and as a flexible environment that enhances the feeling of physical presence during the interaction.

AR enhancing Automotive experience

Two of the most significant trends in new vehicles in 2019 will be voice assistants and AR navigation. Companies including BMW and Hyundai's Genesis imprint have developed AR owner's manuals. When installed on the owner's mobile device, the apps use computer vision to identify components of the interior cabin or engine, overlaying relevant information over the car's real world components. 

Mobile programming LLC innovation team created an AR based navigation solution for a concept Mitsubishi vehicle that displays features like route navigation, cautions lane change, pedestrian warning on the windshield in AR without blocking the driver’s view. Voice recognition enabled login allows the user to start the engine with specific voice commands. 

AR/VR Environments becoming Collaborative and Communal

Virtual environments that allow remote collaboration will be in demand in the coming years. Facebook's purchase of Oculus in 2016 showed that the social media giant believed virtual reality would become vital to the way we build shared online environments.

Agority a multi-user VR based meeting application is another feather in our cap. The application allows the meeting owner to set up a meeting and others participants are invited to join using the Oculus SDK. User have the experience of 360° videos in the VR space along with the 2D videos and presentation demo in real-time.

Training and Education through AR/VR

AR/VR addresses the needs of multiple learning styles and has many benefits. It makes training visual, auditory, and kinaesthetic while providing step-by-step visual and-oral instructions in real-time. Realizing the importance of the technologies, we have developed a VR based simulator for the technicians of hydrogen based e-VTOL manufacturing company. The simulator allows the technicians to see the repair and troubleshoot the vehicle in real-time while another module of the application allows the pilot training of the revolutionary e-VTOL vehicle.

AR/VR providing Intuitive Retail Experience

Augmented reality solutions have changed the retail sector. Retail companies have been leveraging AR/VR to enhance a shopper’s experience. Latest trending mobile apps allow users to scan face and figure out the lips and eyes, and lets the user try on different looks virtually.

Another innovative application was Ericsson – Shop N Go. The app allowed the user to go to find and avail various discount vouchers using AR mobile application while visiting various malls in their vicinity. Ericsson Shop N Go was one of the most successful projects done by Mobile programming LLC.

Today, AR/VR as technologies are booming but it also comes along a few legal concerns. Rightly so, as a digital solution provider Mobile programming LLC team takes care of the consumer privacy and data security, product liability, health and safety issues, Intellectual property infringement, Compliance with platform requirements in publishing content and Technology and IP licensing. We as digital innovators have been at par developing futuristic digital solutions for the Fortune 500 ecosystem.
