Keynote Session: Human Augmentation: Connecting with Manufacturing Environments

05 Jun 2024
IIoT and Connectivity Theatre

Human augmentation technologies are becoming key enablers to connecting people and machines in a Manufacturing Environment. They provide immersive and real time experiences to support, train and optimise tasks and training. The deployment of technologies such as Wearables, Data Visualisation and Cobotics can therefore bring major benefits on the shop floor. This may seem like a daunting task, however embracing change, and communicating the benefits, will allow a manufacturing community to overcome the cultural barriers associated with deployment and lead to successful deployment which is a hugely exciting challenge. 

  • How can human augmentation technology optimise connectivity with machines? 

  • In what ways does human augmentation technology improve connections among workers? 

  • How does human augmentation technology aid and support manufacturing personnel?
