Obtain the devices you’ll use for your augmented reality use case. If you’re using eyewear devices, make sure workers have the opportunity to experience what it’s like to use them in their day-to-day job.
Before you begin, complete these steps:
The devices you’ve chosen to operate Vuforia View may require some initial setup or configuration. Verify your devices are connected to Wi-Fi and ready for use before proceeding. No need to install Vuforia View: for now, workers are learning the basics of the device, not the software.
Eyewear devices like Microsoft HoloLens, RealWear, and Vuzix empower workers to consume AR experiences, hands free. These devices will soon become indispensable for workers of all kinds—but getting accustomed to eyewear devices takes practice. The gestures and/or voice commands used to interact with the device will feel strange, at first. Start acclimating workers to wearing and using the devices on the job as soon as possible. Some first-time users say wearing an eyewear device for as little as 15 minutes helped them get acclimated.
After you set up your devices and download Vuforia View, your AR users are ready to learn how to use the app. If you have not yet created your own AR experiences, start with a sample experience. Under “Gallery,” select “Welcome Experience.” This tutorial will demonstrate how to interact with AR experiences and use key features in the app. Continue using the app by completing other experiences from the Gallery.
If your organization has published AR experiences, encourage your users to interact with them. Ensure the object/machine/product that your experience is designed for is nearby.
