VIRTEX’s project, ‘Augmented Reality & Telepresence’ (XRT), presented Augmented Reality and how it uses new technologies to facilitate growth and innovation in the face of limited space and downtime in the manufacturing process. The use of Augmented Reality (AR) and Extended Reality (XR) has helped VIRTEX move forward with technologies that are helping to advance the entire industry.
“VIRTEX’s XRT initiative is transforming the way we do business,” said Ian Denefe, Manufacturing Engineer at VIRTEX. “Remote access and telepresence have helped mitigate the impact of travel restrictions, and the use of AR aims to expand the capabilities and efficiency of our engineering, manufacturing and quality control resources.”
