JLG Industries has published a whitepaper report that provides guidance on how augmented reality (AR) technology can be used in access.

Intended to help access equipment users and rental companies make the most of JLG’s own AR app, the Augmented Reality Solves Two Common Challenges on Construction Job Sites publication features four case studies that help users of the AR app to get the most out of it.

The case studies show how AR can streamline project planning and simplify the ordering and renting of JLG equipment, which in turn reduces costs. 

Ara Eckel, Director of Product Management – Connected Solutions, JLG, said, “JLG’s AR app is designed to help users find the answers to the questions they have, but because this technology is still relatively new to the industry, many aren’t aware of how it can be used in everyday operations.

“This whitepaper provides an in-depth look at how augmented reality can assist with 1) Sizing and configuring equipment and 2) Helping operators better understand and use their machines.”

The report, which is available to download for free from the company’s website, shows JLG AR app users how to save time and money by illustrating how to “confidently select the right machines and accessories for the job”, and how to “navigate the virtual machines around their job sites to confirm planning”.

The app includes educational resources that allow equipment renters to “quickly refresh operators on how to operate the machines by accessing relevant operational guidance”.

JLG’s AR app can also be used by equipment rental branch managers to identify the right machine for a renter’s project the first time.

According to the company, this reduces guesswork and the duplication of logistics and rental paperwork.
