Integrated Learning and Assistive Systems for Manual Work in Production - Proposal for a Systematic Approach to Technology Selection and Design

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1217)


Digital assistive systems are becoming increasingly common for production work, e.g., in the fields of assembly and maintenance [1, 2]. Experience with the use of assistive technologies in those various fields of application [3] indicates that their successful use is influenced by different parameters, e.g., the individual prerequisites of the employee, the task to be supported and organizational frameworks [4]. These parameters are to be taken into account when designing human-centered, conducive to learning and work-integrated learning and assistive systems.

This paper was written based on experience gained from the project LeARn4Assembly - Didactic and Learning-Friendly Design of VR-/AR-based Learning and Assistive Systems for Complex (De-)Assembly Activities in Production (FKZ 01PV18007A), which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research within the framework of the program “Digital Media in Vocational Education and Training”. This paper is a further development of the article published in the scientific journal of the GfA in 2020.
