A Peek into Augmented Reality
Arindam Sen - Solution Director | June 18, 2018

Augmented reality as a technology brings about a digital transformation in the physical world through images, text, and 3D models. An important aspect of AR is to superimpose the information which it collects from an IoT device on the same device in a manner in which the consumer can consume the information in a meaningful and effortless manner. It has been predicted that the AR market will reach $56.8 billion by 2020. Let’s discuss some use cases of AR: The Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute (CPERI), a research organization, has deployed AR for plant start-up procedures where an operator can complete a task much faster than usual. Further, Comau, which is a part of the Fiat group, has enabled an AR-powered system to help a user assemble a robot wrist in lesser time and with fewer errors in comparison to the standard parameters without the use of AR. Although AR has come a long way, it has challenges ranging from expensive hardware and non-availability of AR content. Recently, at a workshop conducted by Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII), 65 organizations came together to offer insight into the challenges of AR and create a guideline development process. It has been predicted that this will help create a roadmap for the future and evaluate AR solutions before deploying them. The guideline documents AR features such as hardware which comprises of connectivity, battery life, onboard system, storage, and environmental aspects. It also includes software such as authoring, 3D content, IoT, and creation of 3D content.

Digital twins: Bridging the gap between industrial assets and the digital world
Arindam Sen - Solution Director | June 15, 2018

One of Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2017, digital twins aim to transform the virtual landscape. Many research firms are optimistic about its development, predicting that by 2018, companies who will invest in digital twin technology will see a 30% improvement in their cycle times of critical processes. It has all the real-time performance, sensor, and inspection data. Alongside this, it is also associated with the history of the configuration changes, parts replacement, and warranty data, leading to reduced lifecycle ownership cost of the asset and valuable product intelligence for superior product innovation.
Considered an IoT-fuelled business case, this technology trend will require data from various enterprise systems, such as product lifecycle management (PLM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and service lifecycle management (SLM). Apart from these core developments, its solution will also result in a digital representation of factories and environments, which includes a detailed demonstration of the physical world for simulation, analysis, and control. This will lead to a virtual representation of the failures, enabling substantial improvements in costs and cycle times.

Big Data Usage To Increase Multifold In Future
Nameesh Sharma - Manager, NGDC | June 13, 2018

Big Data requires massive processing and huge amount of storage. A little over a decade ago, such levels of processing and storage were only possible through the use of super computers and thus, not only required huge investments upfront, but also made management of massive amounts of data a very expensive proposition. Soon companies such as Google, Yahoo!, and Facebook realized that in order to monetize the huge volumes of data, a cost efficient distributed computing system was required. This eventually led to the descent of Hadoop ecosystem that is now popularly being used across several organizations for storing, processing, and analyzing Big Data.
