Dealing with the Mixed Reality Maturity Gap in Industrial Applications

A. Hildebrand, S. Zollmann, F. Scheer

After years of research in the area of mixed reality, there is still a maturity gap for the practicability in industrial applications. Therefore, the careful introduction and the usage of the technology in accurately selected areas is important for the further acceptance. Facing this challenging task, we show how to build a bridge from mobile to mixed reality applications at Daimler Research to strengthen the acceptance and to prepare the employees successively to get familiar with mixed reality technology. Furthermore, we consider various technological aspects increasing in their complexity during this process and present some automotive example applications.
