目次(抜粋)

  • 様々な業種で採用が進むデジタルリアリティ
  • デジタルリアリティで変わる公益事業者の業務
  • 採用を促進するアプリケーション、課題も残る
  • 設計から採用までベンダと公益事業者の協働が肝要

Augmented and virtual reality devices are among the most cutting-edge technologies in today’s consumer electronics landscape. Electric utilities have never been known as early adopters of such technology, but that does not mean they must always be late to every party. Innovative hardware improvements and progressive software applications mixed with decreasing costs have opened the door for utilities to be pioneers in the deployment of industrial digital reality technology.

Historically, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) have teetered precariously on the edge of practicality (outside of gaming), with limited perceived benefits and functionality, prohibitive costs, and developmental roadblocks. However, new key applications will drive utility interest in digital reality deployment in operations, training, marketing, and other departments. Meanwhile, hardware and device characteristics will either drive or slow the deployment of AR and VR devices. Navigant Research has identified six critical characteristics that a digital reality device must possess for significant penetration into utility operations, and each is identified and discussed in detail in the report.

This Navigant Research report discusses the latest market trends in digital reality for grid applications and explores current and potential applications for small- and large-scale utility deployment. It provides detailed and actionable recommendations on how utilities and device vendors can address the fast-changing market. The study also provides an analysis of key market developments and identifies several prominent AR and VR devices in the market today.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • What are augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) devices?
  • What are the AR and VR applications for utility offices?
  • What are the AR and VR applications for utility field operations?
  • What are the benefits of digital reality?
  • What are the key challenges related to AR and VR deployments?
  • How can utilities implement digital reality into operations?

New Applications Are Driving Utility Interest in Digital Reality Deployment for Operations, Training, Marketing, and More

Six critical characteristics address the potential of augmented reality and virtual reality technologies to have significant penetration in utility operations

March 12, 2018

A new report from Navigant Research examines the latest trends in “digital reality” for small- and large-scale utility deployment, providing detailed recommendations on how utilities and device vendors can capitalize on this market.

Historically, utilities have viewed augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) as impractical, with limited perceived benefits and functionality, prohibitive costs, and developmental roadblocks. However, innovative hardware improvements and progressive software applications, mixed with decreasing costs, have opened the door for utilities to be pioneers in the deployment of industrial digital reality technology.  According to a new report from Navigant Research, new key applications are driving utility interest in digital reality deployment in operations, training, marketing, and other departments.

“The ability to successfully overlay critical asset information for repairs and inspection, as well as the mapping of geographic information system (GIS) data are extremely useful to utilities and developments in those areas will drive up deployment for AR devices,” says Michael Hartnack, research analyst with Navigant Research. “For VR devices, continued enhancements in immersive image rendering, high definition field of view, and communications will push utilities to seriously consider implementation.”

While AR and VR devices are among the most cutting-edge technologies in today’s consumer electronics landscape, utilities have rarely been early adopters of new technologies. To help decision-makers navigate this new realm of products, Navigant Research has identified six critical characteristics that a digital reality device must possess for significant penetration into utility operations. Each characteristic is identified and discussed in detail in the report.

The report, Enhancing Utility Operations with Augmented and Virtual Reality, discusses the latest market trends in digital reality for grid applications and explores current and potential applications for small- and large-scale utility deployment. It provides detailed and actionable recommendations on how utilities and device vendors can address the fast-changing market. The study also provides an analysis of key market developments and identifies several prominent AR and VR devices in the market today
