The AR demonstrator was developed as part of the KOMPI research project and is based on a workstation from a U-line for pressure switch production at the user company Dungs. This workstation was selected according to the planning system for human-robot interaction systems, developed in the KOMPI research project and represents the HRI planning process from the selection of a suitable workstation to the digital cardboard structure including a virtual robot.

Hardware and construction

The basic structure of the AR demonstrator consists of square aluminium profiles on which a workpiece carrier and various conveyor systems for material supply are mounted. In addition to the supply by crate, this is carried out via chute for the basic body of the pressure switch, several separation tubes, e.g. for nuts and sealing rings, as well as an automated screw separator. The pressure switch is mounted mechanically using a torque-limiting rod screwdriver.

The core element of the AR demonstrator is the AR application for tablets, which is part of the demonstrator and used to display the maturity of the workstation in the Quickcheck, also developed at IPS, and in which a robot is integrated into the system with the aid of augmented reality, that executes the work tasks corresponding to the work plan.


Application scenarios in research and teaching

The aim of the AR demonstrator is to simulate HRI solutions during the planning process in order to detect weak points in planning at an early stage and correct them accordingly. With the help of the Demonstrator App, it is possible to simulate and validate the current planning status of an HRI solution in the real production system already during the planning process using the Augmented Reality (AR) function. This will be accompanied by an investigation of how assembly employees can best be integrated into the planning process in order to set up a new human-machine interface on the basis of a real production system.

The AR demonstrator is also being successfully used in teaching and helps to illustrate the application possibilities and benefits of HRI and AR to students.

Further planned application scenarios

The next step is to investigate to what extent AR applications can be integrated into assembly planning in an industrial environment and whether this integration contributes to increasing the acceptance of assembly employees for HRI.

Funding reference:

The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the funding program "Innovations for tomorrow's production, services and work" in the field of "Assembly Competence - Collaborative and Versatile (KoMo)" and is supported by the Project Management Organisation Karlsruhe (PTKA).
