Fraunhofer IEM has created an Augmented Reality application with the SenseGlove in a joint research project with Hella Headlights. With a combination of a paper mock-up of an assembly cell, an AR headset and SenseGloves. Hella was able to optimize their design for manufacturing processes in the early product development stage.
Improving Augmented Reality Assembly Evaluation with force-feedback
This study of Fraunhofer IEM showed that participants valued the added realism of the haptic- and force-feedback compared to a version of the simulation with traditional controllers. “The evaluation of the new system confirmed that the improvements enable a more realistic simulation of the assembly processes and a more intuitive operation of the system”.
