ndustry 4.0 technologies are transforming how manufacturing systems operate, creating data-rich environments and unleashing new methods and paradigms to solve old and emerging challenges. Manufacturers face major metrology challenges to achieve dependable (e.g., accurate, timely, traceable) measurement, inspection, and quality control systems, which highly impacts on product costs, time to market and, ultimately, on businesses’ competitiveness. Metrology 4.0 has recently emerged as a new term referring to the deployment of I4.0 technologies to advance manufacturing metrology processes. To date, there are urgent knowledge gaps on the understanding of the several I4.0 technologies and how they can support manufacturers improving their capabilities. To help bridging this gap, we’ve selected Augmented Reality (AR), an unexpensive core I4.0 technology that has shown widely success in advancing manufacturing systems in the recent years, to carry out a systematic review of the literature on its use to advance manufacturing metrology. The several types of AR technologies, its key features and applications are summarised and analysed considering the requirements of Metrology 4.0. The results will be presented to demonstrate and provide insights on the role of AR in achieving the goals of Metrology 4.0.
