Cross reality to enhance worker cognition in industrial assembly operations

Abstract

In this paper, we discuss how Cross Reality (XR) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) can support assembly tasks in hybrid human-machine manufacturing lines. We describe a Cross Reality system, designed to improve efficiency and ergonomics in industrial environments that require manual assembly operations. Our objective is to reduce the high costs of authoring assembly manuals and to improve the process of skills transfer, in particular, in assembly tasks that include workers with disabilities. The automation of short-lived assembly tasks, i.e., manufacturing of limited batches of customized products, does not yield significant returns considering the automation effort necessary and the production time frame. In the design of our XR system, we discuss how aspects of content creation can be automated for short-lived
