Augmented Reality (AR)capability in Industry to support manual processes
User centered design to optimise the 'human in the loop'
Using state of the art technology combined with traditional user centered design techniques, we are developing the optimal presentation of data to support human users in their decision making and control processes. Cyber models have been created in several different software packages to investigate creating a Cyber Physical System of a cable track. Each software package uses different physics engines and each has its pros and cons. It is advantageous to look into using gaming software due to their low cost and easy availability, however they don’t always have the capability to model engineering scenarios in sufficient detail. Investigations are being made into what functionality is required of them
Optimising the socio-technical system.
