Augmented Reality is used in a wide range of logistics processes, such as incoming goods or picking. During the picking process, the employee receives specific product information via special data glasses where the storage location can be visually displayed. The Fraunhofer IML has been researching for many years in the field of AR and developed, for example, a system that improves packaging processes using data glasses. Here, the employee is guided through the process and is shown at which point the product should be optimally placed.
AR - Visual - Individual
The use of AR technologies is not limited to the classic AR glasses, but also works well with a smartphone or tablet. Depending on the field of application, AR can be used in various ways. The use of the three-dimensional representation of objects is not always necessary. For maintenance work, it may e.g. suffice that simple texts are projected to the respective machines in the field of view of the employee. On this basis, Fraunhofer IML develops flexible and individual solutions for your processes.
AR - increasing usability
AR optimally supports employees in their work. Important information about the location of machines or approaching vehicles leads to the safe handling of complex systems. In addition, they will be shown the best way through the warehouse to the respective products. But also, in the field of repair, AR enables a simplified handling. Thus, for example, the maintenance plans and additional design data can be projected into the field of view of the worker.
