Dhaval Sahija is award wining Technology Evangelist and Innovation Lead who has closely worked on various kinds of digital technologies including Web, Mobility, Cloud, Conversational Bots and recently on Extended Reality. Dhaval has supported many small to mid size enterprise to digitize there business operations with immersive interfaces such as Augmented and Mixed Reality, across domains such as discrete manufacturing, healthcare, heavy engineering, education and so forth.
“Limitations in existing Digital technologies and ever growing demands of current generation of users; has led to rise of HCI (Human Computer Interface) related tools i.e., Augmented reality glasses and Mixed reality headsets.” said Dhaval Sahija. Augmented Reality glasses provide overlay on physical object and are great fit in usecase such as warehouse operations, object recognition, indoor navigation and so forth. Whereas mixed reality is blend of augmented and virtual experience, which makes more sense if businesses are looking for experience that is immersive and has rich data.
Dhaval Sahija has worked with clients in diverse background from startups to Fortune 500 and everything in between, and supported them in not just modernizing there existing systems; but also in improving ROI on total cost of ownership, consolidating data driven insights, and so forth by transforming it with Mixed reality interface. Some of the recent work of Dhaval include process automation for discrete manufacturing company, IIoT Enablement for Connected worker solution, field service operations solutions for mid size manufacturing company, 3d product catalog for equipment design company and so forth.
“Industry is currently seeing hugh adoption of these immersive technology due to ease of integration of mixed and augmented reality headsets with cloud services; which acts as force multiplier in terms of accessibility of real time data from various sources and presenting interactive visualization withing these headsets.” said Dhaval Sahija. Cloud services also supports in storing 3d assets, rendering holograms and updating the data into backend systems, thus reducing the dependence of data storage on headset.
AR & MR Developers need to think more as UX Designers, while they design apps for these immersive interfaces. User are now demanding more for less, i.e., more functions within smaller field of view in headsets. The way this technology is evolving, there is define chance that it will overtake mobile devices usage in coming years.
