The combination of the Internet of Things and augmented reality not only allows organizations to collect data through sensor networks and generate actionable insights but also delivers these insights to the right people at the right time, with the greatest impact.
The IoT leverages its network of intelligent objects, sensors, and processors to continuously collect data, analyze data, and trigger appropriate responses from related entities to automate the process. These entities can be endpoint actuators that can make changes in the process or people who are notified to take appropriate action. An example of this is the IoT-based inventory management system, which uses sensors and scanners to monitor the consumption and storage of materials in production facilities. When the inventory is nearly exhausted, the IoT system can place an order with the supplier to supplement it or notify the relevant personnel to supplement it.
Enterprises adopt augmented reality (AR) to enable employees to access important information in an unobtrusive, hands-free way. One example is the use of AR smart glasses in logistics to help sorters efficiently find and identify packages without having to read labels or use handheld scanners.
Potential applications of the Internet of Things and augmented reality
The combination of the Internet of Things and augmented reality can enhance the responsiveness of IoT systems by providing insights to the right people at the right time. The delivery of insights will ensure that the system is responsive and ensures that the organization maintains sufficient agility to respond to external changes.
▲ equipment repair and maintenance
The adoption of predictive maintenance for big data and IoT support is already accelerating, especially in manufacturing. Manufacturers use the Internet of Things to continuously monitor device health and performance and use sensors to identify early signs of failure. Based on historical data, these systems can identify trends in potential machine failures and notify maintenance personnel to take remedial action.

Introducing AR into this process can make it more streamlined and efficient. Maintenance personnel equipped with AR smart glasses can visually inspect the machine and obtain performance data directly through the glasses. They can even perform complex maintenance and repairs through remote assistance applications to further reduce downtime.
