Live from DTECH: Leveraging augmented reality for better field operations

Everybody is talking about augmented reality, but what does this technology actually look like, and what could it accomplish for the electric utility sector?

Experts from Clevest, FortisAB and EDX Technologies will present “Leveraging Augmented Reality: Practical applications to improve field operations” live from DistribuTECH Conference & Exhibition 2019 at 12:30 p.m. (EST), February 5.

The presentation will be streamed online, and DistribuTECH attendees are welcome to join us in rooms 283, 284, & 285 on the second level of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

There, you can learn how augmented reality works, how it is different from virtual reality, how you can use it without having to invest in expensive hardware and use the technology to improve worker safety and field operations.

You can learn how to leverage AR technology and mobile workforce management solutions to identify and get asset information, run network traces, collaborate with workers, and provide remote worker assists.

Join us and learn about practical yet innovative use cases — beyond just locating underground infrastructure, especially when your GIS data isn’t accurate enough to support this.

Jennifer Runyon, Content Manager with Clarion Energy, will moderate this discussion.

Jon Zawada, Senior Manager of Technical Operations with FortisAB; Carol Johnston, Vice President of Products with Clevest; and Roger Skidmore, CEO of EDX Technologies will present. The webcast is sponsored by Clevest.
