The pair is working on initiatives using software and hardware including wearable devices and machine intelligence to address this issue.
Engineers average age is around 50 years and represents a significant percentage of the workforce. This indicates an impending skills gap that is expected to hit these industries soon, creating an opportunity for technology solve a critical skills problem.
Intoware and the AMRC have joined to form a collective to create a straightforward and effective solution to this issue, each playing an essential role in the success of this cunning plan by providing technology and innovation.
A proof of concept will be set up at the AMRC’s Factory 2050 in Sheffield. A limited number of industry partners interested in participating in this collaboration can apply as early as July of 2017.
Intoware CEO Keith Shipton said: “This problem is something our team has been looking at for some time now,” and added machine intelligence and wearables are at a point where they can be used.
AMRC Augmented Reality Technical Fellow, Chris Freeman, said: “The AMRC has worked with industry innovators on many projects solving problems leveraging the latest advancements in technology.”
