The AR for Enterprise Alliance provides organizations with the support they need to assess, plan and manage their enterprise Augmented Reality projects.

Taking place on July 27 and 28, 2015 at the EPRI facility in Charlotte, N.C., ARLU will provide delegates with insights into the opportunities for reduced risk and improved performance through the introduction of AR-assisted workflows in the utilities industry.


Focused exclusively on addressing the unique requirements of the utilities industry, ARLU is targeted at IT professionals working in utilities, vendors serving the utilities industry, and providers of AR components, systems and services.


Presentations, workshop sessions, and demonstrations provided by participating organizations will highlight best practices and practical approaches for integrating AR-enhanced information visualization components to complement processes and workflows.


"Representatives from EPRI, Atheer Labs, Augmate, DAQRI, Design Mill, IEEE and NGRAIN will share lessons learned through the practical application of these technologies to help deepen delegates’ understanding of mission-critical workflows that can benefit most from the introduction of AR-assisted systems," says Christine Perey, AREA Executive Director.


"EPRI is bringing together experts to ferret out the obstacles facing the industry and to identify the best approaches to take advantage of this technology," says John Simmins, EPRI Technical Executive and AREA board member. "This meeting will give attendees a better understanding of the technology gaps that exist within the industry and the utilities customer requirements."
