Periodic Reporting for period 1 - A4BLUE (Adaptive Automation in Assembly For BLUE collar workers satisfaction in Evolvable context) Result description Initial prototype introducing a smart torque wrench connected to a guidance tool based on augmented reality to support the complex hydraulic system assembly.
FIWARE Taxon title FIWARE Search keywords FIWARE
The A4BLUE framework consists of an ICT infrastructure that enables the integration of automation mechanisms, sensors, legacy systems based on IoT components (FIWARE,...) that enables the assistance and support on decision through divers HMI, including Augmented Reality.
- Multimodal interaction mechanisms of workers with automation (voice and gestures).
- Augmented Reality interfaces for assistance and guiding
The A4BLUE framework introduces new ways of interacting with automation mechanisms (specifically, with robots) thorugh natural speaking and gestures.
FIWARE components are used within the A4BLUE architecture (context broker, CEP, identity management, collaborative asset management (FITMAN)).
Robots adapt their behaviour depending on workers' profiles.
A4BLUE enables the transference of knowledge among workers and from the organization to the workers as well, including best practives, instructions, tips from workers, etc., which is integrated within the ICT infrastructure for production.
