Top 20 Augmented Reality Companies - 2017

Perceived as the technology of future, Augmented Reality (AR) is geared to make marked enhancements, and radically alter business workflows by building a bridge between the real and digital worlds and amplifying real life scenarios. Companies across industry segments realize the importance of an improved experience in the synergy of computer-generated visuals and the real world through AR. The game changing technology is making inroads in education, healthcare, manufacturing, logistics, and automotive sectors in addition to its prominence in the entertainment arena.

Advances in AR have been facilitated by rapid progress in modeling and simulation—offering graphical enhancements to real, physical environments, rather than creating an entirely new environment. The technology is opening up opportunities for enterprises to create time-saving experiences, quality inspections, work instructions, and training. AR is revolutionizing manufacturing operations, showcasing products in an immersive way, creating engaging learning experiences as well as transforming diagnostic and treatment applications in the medical arena.
