New technologies continuously emerge that change the nature of work and human lifestyles in dramatic ways. We see Augmented Reality (AR), Wearable Technology, and more specifically Body Area Networks (BAN) as particularly life-changing solutions to many human problems. As with many new innovations, some of these are problems we do not even realize we have at present.
In 2014, approximately 864 million mobile phones will be AR-ready, and in excess of 100 million vehicles will come equipped with AR technologies of various types. We believe that there is enormous potential for AR applications in many fields including education, healthcare, industrial applications, and the automotive industry.
We see several factors converging to facilitate wearable technology integration including expanded wireless capacity due to pervasive wireless (WiFi, WiMAX, and LTE), cellular market saturation and the need for wireless companies to establish new revenue streams, continuously decreasing cost of data, and the significant backing from huge companies including Google, Apple, and others. We also see developments in key technologies such as Augmented Reality, Body Area Networks, Ambient Awareness, and Peer-to-Peer Communications as drivers for evolution in consumer perception of value and willingness to engage in new forms of communications, content, applications, and commerce.
This report provides a view into the anticipated evolution of Augmented Reality, Body Area Networks, and other aspects of wearable technologies. The report evaluates the current state of the industry and provides analysis and forecasts regarding the future prospects of device shipments, applications and solutions. The report also assesses the future of AR and wearable technology, considering many factors, including but not limited to expansion of wireless data capacity and availability, cloud-based service delivery models, market dynamics of service providers and consumer limitations and wiliness to engage in new usage and lifestyle paradigms.
