How a joint HCL and Librestream industrial augmented reality solution is enhancing business outcomes for leading organizations. A recent Korn Ferry study identified that by 2030 there will be a global talent shortage of more than 85 million people. If left unchecked, it could result in an estimated $8.5 trillion in unrealized annual revenues. This means that finding the right person, in the right location, and at the right time will only get more complicated as these workforce shortages increase. As a result, augmented reality technology and AI-based remote collaboration tools will gain traction to enable deeper collaboration and knowledge capture.

The U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) and Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] have demonstrated the ability of fully autonomous convoys to operate in urban environments with multiple vehicles of different models. The demonstration earlier this month at Fort Hood, Texas, was part of the Army and Marine Corps' Autonomous Mobility Appliqué System (AMAS) program, and marked the completion of the program's Capabilities Advancement Demonstration (CAD). The test involved driverless tactical vehicles navigating hazards and obstacles such as road intersections, oncoming traffic, stalled and passing vehicles, pedestrians and traffic circles in both urban and rural test areas. "The AMAS CAD hardware and software performed exactly as designed, and dealt successfully with all of the real-world obstacles that a real-world convoy would encounter," said David Simon, AMAS program manager for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. The AMAS hardware and software are designed to automate the driving task on current tactical vehicles.
