Augmented Reality in Warehousing and Logistics

This research begins with definition, benefits and key trends of Augmented Reality (AR) technology. As one of the largest verticals for AR glasses shipments and total value chain revenues, logistics greatly benefits from AR in much of the standard workflow, such as pick and pack and remote expertise. More universal AR use cases can also be incredibly useful in various parts of the logistics market. To fully enjoy these benefits, key features for hardware are required to be addressed as well as content and platform development. Proven benefits of AR adoption, creation of value-added services, lower costs, etc., will drive the adoption of AR in logistics, but cultural aspects, operation management, security and others might hamper the growth. Furthermore, automation could lead customers skipping AR-powered workers in favor of worker-replacing autonomy.
