Implementation of Augmented Reality in Autonomous Warehouses: Challenges and Opportunities

  title={Implementation of Augmented Reality in Autonomous Warehouses: Challenges and Opportunities},
  author={David Puljiz and Gleb Gorbachev and Bj{\"o}rn Hein},
Autonomous warehouses with mobile, rack-carrying robots are starting to become commonplace, with systems such as Amazon's Kiva and Swisslog's CarryPick already implemented in functional warehouses. Such warehouses however still require human intervention for object picking and maintenance. In the European project SafeLog we are developing a safety-vest, used for safety-critical ranging and stopping of mobile robots, an improved planner that can handle large fleets of heterogeneous agents as… 
The Reality-Virtuality Interaction Cube
There has recently been an explosion of work in the humanrobot interaction (HRI) community on the use of mixed, augmented, and virtual reality. In this paper, we present a novel conceptual framework
AR-glasses-based attention guiding for complex environments: requirements, classification and evaluation
Augmented Reality (AR) based assistance has a huge potential in the context of Industry 4.0: AR links digital information to physical objects and processes in a mobile and, in the case of AR glasses,
Adapting the Human: Leveraging Wearable Technology in HRI
Wearable technologies are proposed to be leveraged, such as augmented reality head mounted displays, smart watches, sensor tags and radio-frequency ranging, to "adapt" the human and reduce the requirements and complexity of robots.
Solutions Dedicated to Internal Logistics 4.0
The contribution presents methodological arrangement of internal logistics in the context of Industry 4.0. In addition, it discusses the innovativeness level of solutions suggested as belonging to
The Hype and Disruptive Technologies of Industry 4.0 in Major Industrial Sectors: A State of the Art
Very well into the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution (industry 4.0), we hardly distinguish between what is artificial and what is natural (e.g. man-made virus and natural virus). Thus, the
Industry 4.0 Disruption and Its Neologisms in Major Industrial Sectors: A State of the Art
Very well into the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution (industry 4.0), humankind can hardly distinguish between what is artificial and what is natural (e.g., man-made virus and natural virus).


Real-Time Visual Localisation in a Tagged Environment
A visual localisation method with visual elements that are already available in the current warehouse setup to ensure the operator's security during his/her intervention in the warehouse without powering off the robots.
Coordinating Hundreds of Cooperative, Autonomous Vehicles in Warehouses
The Kiva warehouse management system creates a new paradigm for pick-pack-and-ship warehouses that significantly improves worker productivity and improves accountability and flexibility.
Human Intention Recognition in Flexible Robotized Warehouses Based on Markov Decision Processes
This paper presents a ToM-based algorithm for human intention recognition in flexible robotized warehouses and demonstrates that the proposed framework predicts human warehouse worker's desires in an intuitive manner.

This paper follows a vision approach based on the observation of vanishing points (VPs) and inherently enforces the orthogonality of the VPs by directly incorporating the orthOGonality constraint into the model estimation step of the RANSAC procedure, which allows real-time applications.
Team Delft's Robot Winner of the Amazon Picking Challenge 2016
The robot’s software uses ROS to integrate off-the-shelf components and modules developed specifically for the competition, implementing Deep Learning and other AI techniques for object recognition and pose estimation, grasp planning and motion planning.
An Overview to Visual Odometry and Visual SLAM: Applications to Mobile Robotics
This paper is intended to pave the way for new researchers in the field of robotics and autonomous systems, particularly those who are interested in robot localization and mapping. We discuss the
A comparison of order picking assisted by head-up display (HUD), cart-mounted display (CMD), light, and paper pick list
This work evaluated order picking assisted by four approaches: head-up display (HUD); cart-mounted display (CMD); pick-by-light; and paper pick list and suggests that pick- by-HUD and pick-bys-CMD are superior on all metrics to the current practices of pick-By-paper and pick - by-light.
