Special session 1:

Industrial eXtented Reality

eXtented Reality has proven to be a value added technology in the Industry, in many fields of the entire product lifecycle. Several studies have shown how Industrial eXtented Reality can both increase efficiency and reduce errors by visually guiding the workers in the execution of their tasks, especially in Assembly and Maintenance. Another way eXtented Reality has proven to be useful in the Industry is by making it easier and faster for new hires to learn new work instructions, shorten the learning curve and help trainees to better retain the newly acquired information over time. This Special Session aims to attract scientific contributions on theoretical and methodological approaches, practical applications, and solutions validation in any industrial field.
