User Acceptance of Augmented and Virtual Reality Technologies in Industry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific

Abstract

The use of augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) technologies is increasing in industry. These novel technologies have potential to support many work tasks but to utilise AR/VR solutions, the users should be willing to adopt them. Therefore, it is important to study what influences user acceptance of AR/VR technologies. This paper summarises findings from VTT’s AR/VR studies. Main finding is that the users’ attitudes towards AR/VR technologies are generally positive. However, they still see challenges in taking the technologies’ into use in industry, especially practical problems related to ergonomics, safety and integration to daily tasks. Most of the studies have been short-term and they have been made mainly in laboratory settings. To get a thorough understanding of user acceptance, AR/VR technologies should be studied long-term in actual industrial use.
