The challenge

Student teams will submit their ideas on how to use Augmented Reality (AR) to help solve a business issue that exists in any organization of their choice – whether that be within aerospace, retail, government, technology or any other industry in between. They will need to source, define, and propose a solution which could be solved or enhanced by the use of AR. If their idea is chosen as a finalist, they will be given the opportunity to engineer their solution and surface the visualization in AR. Potential challenges and examples may be provided to teams in advance but the goal is to start from scratch and end with a working prototype that has real-world applications.
