|Venture||Strategic innovation programme for process industrial IT and automation – PiiA|
Purpose and goal
The purpose has been to identify the challenges of implementing XR in the industry and answer the question "why haven’t more industries implemented XR?". The aim was to gather these challenges in a report and make this report available to the industry. We had identified three main challenges before the project and identified more during the project. The project also had the goal to send in a new application for a continuation project. The plan is to submit an application for a FUI project within PiiA´s next call, which closes on 24 April 2019.
Expected results and effects
The result of the project was a report with all the challenges we identified as well as a the groundwork in preparation for a new application. Our hope is that this report will be of benefit to Swedish industries that are considering implementing XR in their business forward. The goal of the next project will be to address the challenges we identified in this feasibility study and to solve some of the problems that exist.
Planned approach and implementation
Through interviews and discussions with the industrial partners, a number of challenges with implementing XR have been identified. The project has also participated in the XR fair AWE in Munich and talked with several industry experts about various challenges. The project has also developed an in-depth technology study that highlights some of the challenges from a tech developer´s perspective. In the project, the various challenges have been discussed and together we have identified the most important ones and jointly arrived at conclusions on how these challenges can be tackled.
