At the conference „Mensch und Computer“ (Humans and Computers) in Regensburg, our researchers presented their latest results on human-machine interaction.
Patrick Bertram talked about manual assembly. In smart factories, plants and processes are becoming more and more digital. In the light of this development, manual work stations are a big exception. Product and assembly process can neither be tracked in real time nor represented in a digital way. Assistance systems, machine-based learning and semantic information modelling, meaning the combination of data with their context, offer many opportunities to improve manual assembly.
Max Birtel presented a human-machine-interface on the basis of semantic information modelling. With this basic concept, it is possible to enable the production worker to flexibly interact with various production lines. The hardware component used is the Smart Glass.
