How data gloves are helping industry

It’s almost impossible to imagine everyday life without virtual reality. VR glasses are taking computer gaming to a new level and enable journeys to unknown worlds. In industry, however, the next leap forward is coming from data gloves instead.

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in manufacturing and industry

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are currently in the process of creating permanent change to industrial development, production, and operational processes: from design development in the automotive sector, through to virtual representations of aircraft engines and investigating the effects of clashes during mechanical engineering, AR and VR offer seemingly limitless possibilities. The advantages are obvious: processes can be made more efficient, designs optimised well in advance of development, and complex machines can be maintained more intelligently.

Additive Layer Manufacturing: A Revolution in 3D

3D printers have triggered a new industrial revolution, enabling companies to manufacture complex components more easily and at a lower cost than ever before. At the same time, the process opens up new options for lightweight construction techniques. Car manufacturers, Formula 1, and many other sectors are already making use of this technology, and in the aviation industry, entire engine parts and fuselage sections are made by 3D printing.

How artificial intelligence is changing industry – and everyday life.

Artificial intelligence is taking over everyday life. Voice assistants aim to make our lives easier, cars are learning how to drive themselves, and in the not-too-distant future, the first drones could be taking passengers to their destinations – with no pilots whatsoever. What is less well known is how artificial intelligence is becoming more prevalent in industry and manufacturing.
