This paper presents a methodology and a system for augmented reality aided assembly work. We concentrate in particular on the requirements on information processing and data flow for implementing augmented assembly systems in real life production environments. A pilot case with an augmented assembly task at the Finnish tractor company Valtra is described.
In this paper, we describe the demonstration system in which a wooden 3D puzzle is assembled using an augmented reality system. The 3D puzzle emulated a simplified assembly task in a factory. We use the 3D puzzle as a means to study how to implement an augmented assembly system to a real setting in a factory and explore the advantages and disadvantages of… (More)
—In this paper, a multimodal system for augmented reality aided assembly work is designed and implemented. The multimodal interface allows for speech and gestural input. The system emulates a simplified assembly task in a factory. A 3D puzzle is used to study how to implement the augmented assembly system to a real setting in a factory. The system is used… (More)
Modern manufacturing enterprises are built from facilities spread around the globe, which contain equipment from hundreds of different manufacturers. Immense volumes of product information must be transferred between the various facilities and machines. Today's digital communications standards have solved the problem of reliably transferring information… (More)
