According to the market trend analysis developed by Zion market research, the Defense and Security sector is going to see a massive adoption in the next 5 years of Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence technologies together with the healthcare segment.
The military sector has always been a pioneer in adopting emerging technological advancements for the training and combat enhancements purposes and the AR is not an exception.
Ten years ago, the army had already implemented the technology of real-time overlaying for their fighter-jet pilots.
The first type of wearable used has been a helmet-mounted augmented reality display to help soldiers develop cognitive skills.
Following the army, more and more AR devices and systems have starting to penetrate the law enforcement system first to create safer training environments.
Only 5 years ago, AR technology was still quite immature and required further research and development. Especially in terms of visual registration, overlapping, robustness and the convenience of head-mounted AR eyewear.
Today, the challenge is to face the cons behind AR and AI technologies: information overload, low reliability of AR technologies in the decision-making process, communications handling, data storing, field of view (FOV), ability to integrate AI and Machine Learning features in the vision elaboration and wearable devices robustness.
Thanks to the involvement in the DARLENE project, Youbiquo will be working on the AR wearable device ergonomics and customization as well as on AI on-device computation according to the LEAs needs and limitations.
