Assessment of Mixed-Reality Devices for Production Engineering

Part of the Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering book series (LNME)

Abstract

The article presents the results of works aimed at evaluation of Mixed Reality equipment for various industrial applications. The technical parameters and the existing limitations of the 15 MR devices that appeared on the market in the last two years was analyzed and compared. As a result, an overall equipment ranking was developed, as well as an expert assessment in terms of their use in industry in supporting operation and maintenance processes of machines and devices, interactive trainings and product and process design. Due to the lack of data, certificates and recommendations from equipment manufacturers, the authors recommend planning and conducting experiments aimed at determining the range of possible working conditions for selected devices. The limits of their use by employees related to the frequency and severity of adverse effects should be considered as well.
