Augmented reality connects the real world with virtual data because it enhances
people’s perception of the world. It is a modern technology that superimposes real-time
and computer-generated visual, audio, and haptic signals onto a person’s normal range
of vision, touch, smell, and hearing. A common form of this technology is projecting
navigational data for a pilot or car driver onto a screen in front of them. This
merging of reality and virtual technology is rapidly becoming popular as technologists are developing new methods for implementing it into everyday ways of working.
