A4BLUE: Watch the video of the AIRBUS use case scenario

A video have been produced by A4BLUE partners to show the AIRBUS use case scenario.

A4BLUE proposes the development and evaluation of a new generation of sustainable, adaptive workplaces dealing with evolving requirements of manufacturing processes the introduction of automation mechanisms that are suitable for flexible and efficient task execution in interaction with human workers and by optimising human variability through personalised and context aware assistance capabilities as well as advanced human-machine interfaces.

For the Airbus scenario, A4BLUE will provide a fully traceable quality process improvement for a specific set of assembly personnel including operators, quality supervisors, manufacturing engineers, and process planners. This will be done by introducing a new intelligent system for bolt tightening in hydraulic assembly, involving a Smart Torque Wrench (jointly developed between Airbus and SamOutillage) connected with an Augmented Reality Device (Hololens).

The AR device will present information based on each operator’s individual profile and skillset to ensure an appropriate level of automation optimizes their execution of the task using the torque wrench. By measuring and recording real-time and synchronized information to operators, supervisors, engineers and process planners the A4BLUE system will provide a new and improved generation of assembly.
