Augmented Reality (AR) is an emerging technology, but physical security experts are already anticipating how it will impact the industry. Unlike virtual reality, which completely immerses the user in a digital world, augmented reality keeps the user functional in the real world by superimposing digital information, such as images or GPS data, onto the user’s real-world view. Early AR hardware includes the Microsoft HoloLens and Google Glass.
Four main areas where AR could enhance physical security:
- Accessible project information
- Photo and video capture
- Tracking and “X-Ray vision”
- Precise GPS
In this article, we'll look at the benefits of accessible project information and photo and video capture.
