PTC Transforming Industrial Operations With Augmented Reality
The physical and digital worlds were always dis-connected before the advent of IoT. IoT platforms facilitated organizations to bridge the gap between the physical and digital world by collecting and combining data from multiple devices and platforms.

From factory floors to farmlands, IoT has penetrated into every domain. It has created a data deluge, by connecting the sensors and actuators to the cloud. Therefore, to unlock the true potential of this burgeoning data, a visually efficient medium that is easily scalable and user-friendly is required. Finding such technology is quite a challenge. Augmented Reality is the solution to that challenge and has made it easier to connect the digital and physical world.

Moreover, with the invention of Augmented Reality, it has become easier for developers to integrate digital information with the user’s environment in real-time. In other words, AR is integrating real and computer-based scenes and images to deliver a unified and enhanced view of the world, which is done by overlaying new information on top of the existing environment. However, the industrial companies today are looking for solutions that would help them deliver AR content to transform operations in order to increase business profitability.
