Extending the design space in industrial manufacturing through mobile projection
This paper illustrates design opportunities for future systems in industrial manufacturing based on mobile projectors. We present a projection-based augmented reality (AR) assembly assistance system that supports users in the production process by projecting picking and assembly information into the physical workspace. Based on insights gained with a first prototype system using a stationary projector, we consider the availability of mobile projectors and the extended design space as a huge opportunity for AR applications in industrial manufacturing. Within this paper, we describe design ideas for extending our concept and for applying mobile projection in the context of industrial manufacturing.
