Augmented Reality for Human-Robot Interaction in Industry
Augmented reality for human-robot interaction in industry is the usage of augmented reality technologies for displaying computer-generated digital contents, correctly aligned to real objects, in order to enhance and enrich the communication interface of users, which operates robots in an industrial environment.
The industry domain has taken advantage of augmented reality (AR) since its origin (Sutherland 1968): technicians are often involved in complex assembly, repair, or maintenance procedures, and they need to refer to instruction manuals to complete their tasks (Caudell and Mizell 1992). However, these activities often require a high cognitive load due to a continuous switch of the attention between the physical device and the paper manual (Henderson and Feiner 2007). AR can efficiently overcome this issue providing the same content in a digital form and properly...
