Nowadays there are numerous digital solutions to address reskilling through hands-on interactive training for operators. For example, virtual reality (VR) technologies are currently used to train operators on the assembly of products where components are not yet available in the factory, allowing operators to learn and practice the assembly process before joining a real assembly line.
Meanwhile, augmented reality (AR) can give operators continuous guidance on the assembly line through digital work instructions projected onto the workstation, and through sensors that generate real-time feedback.
The COSMO project aimed to research and develop data-driven techniques that would enable more efficient content creation for assembly training for AR and VR applications and allow such applications to adapt to the skill level of the individual operator. The project also investigated the impact of AR and VR training on operators’ learning processes and on stress levels.
