Energy management and automation firm, Schneider Electric, has advocated for the usage of the Augmented Reality Technology to transform businesses and consumer marketplaces in Nigeria, and to boost the nation’s economy.
Augmented reality is the real-time use of information in the form of audio, graphics and texts integrated with real-world objects.
In a statement made available to our correspondent in Lafia on Friday, Territory Technology Lead of Schneider Electric, Belema Koleoso, said the firm’s AR technology EcoStruxure Augmented Operator Advisor would aid effectiveness, optimise human assets, and bridge the prevalent generational skill gaps if fully adopted by Nigerians.
Belema said, “Although much progress has been made since 2019 when Schneider Electric’s AR technology was launched, we want more people and companies to use it to their advantage. The software combines contextual and local dynamic information for mobile users, enabling them to experience a fusion of the physical, real-life environment with virtual objects.

“It becomes a mobile work buddy for employees commencing the learning curve and in all, reduces operational cost while increasing plant operational efficiency. The AR presents completely new ways of executing tasks, with instant diagnosis, contactless maintenance, increased efficiency, and lower cost.
“Industries including construction, aviation, consumer packaged goods producers, energy and chemical, mining and minerals etc, can use the EOA to enhance their operations.”
Belema said Nigerians should consider the AR as an investment that enhanced optimal output, adding that with technology improving and becoming more widely available, it was undeniable that the AR would become essential for businesses to thrive in the upcoming years.
“Schneider Electric is optimistic that its position as a thought leader and industry partner in the digital transformation of energy management and automation is about to gain new ground, enabling the emergence of a new landscape of energy, a paradigm shift for the industry, and a revolutionised experience,” she added. ,
