Requirements for an Augmented Reality-Based Assistance System
Commercial vehicles raise the efficiency of work processes in many fields of application. This is in contrast to a comparatively high number of accidents that are often associated with serious personal and property damage. Therefore, this contribution presents an approach to develop an assistance system for mobile cranes that raises the safety level in the working area. By applying Augmented Reality technology, the developed assistance system provides safety-related information directly in the field of vision of the crane operator. In this contribution, the authors present user requirements for the development of such an assistance system. On this basis, trajectories for the user-centered development for an Augmented Reality-based assistance system are revealed in the context of mobile cranes.
The authors would like to thank the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research for their support within the project safeguARd - Augmented Reality-based assistance system for commercial vehicles to raise the safety level (funding code: 16SV7739).
