Augmented Reality (AR) is a cutting-edge artificial vision technology designed to achieve a realistic training experience. This exciting technology combines real objects with virtual computer-generated images to create a new “mixed reality” in real time. AR increases the student’s perception of the environment overlapping with virtual 3D objects. This gives the feeling that the objects of the real and virtual worlds coexist!
Using this technology, students are able to acquire and practice basic welding skills without the safety issues and high costs of welding equipment and materials. Through hands-on interaction, students become familiar with various welding practices and techniques before entering a real welding booth. When students are ready for practice with actual welding equipment, less time and materials are consumed as a result of their experiences with the Miller AugmentedArc reality welding trainer.
