Abstract: Augmented Reality (AR) systems present a technological platform that allows a harmonious integration of the real and virtual worlds, structured with endless capabilities in its application. With the rise of information technology, AR has made a significant contribution to industrial applications, namely: medicine, aviation, manufacturing, etc. This paper aims to provide dipper insightful on AR technology by investigating the current state-of-the-art of AR technology usage in the manufacturing industry encompassing quality control and maintenance. It describes how AR technology has been integrated into quality control and maintenance, current and available AR devices in use, and future research direction.
Keywords: Augmented Reality (AR), Manufacturing, Quality Control, Maintenance, AR Glasses.
