Many companies in the aerospace industry are studying how their counterparts in the military and automotive industries have used Augmented Reality. Some are leading with projects to deploy AR to improve their workplace performance and safety, as well as workforce productivity. In parallel, national and international agencies in aerospace, such as the European Space Agency (ESA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), are running their own pilots and studies to achieve their goals more safely and cost effectively.
EPRI is looking at new ways, such as wearable technologies, to make it faster and easier for power plant workers to collect important data and then use software, such as EPRI’s PM Basis Database (PMBD) and Fleet-Wide Prognostic and Health Management Suite (FW-PHM), via a Common Information Model (CIM) to improve operations and maintenance.
