The Digital Enhanced Operator (DEO) project is bringing Augmented Reality (AR) to Volkswagen’s Autoeuropa shopfloor with KIT-AR’s solution. The goal is to increase production quality while fewer errors are committed by the augmented workers.
DEO will be using KIT-AR’s solution to support production operations and quality control with step-by-step AR instructions viewed through HMDs (Head Mounted Displays). The goal is to research and successfully implement an AR industrial system to identify and guide workers through quality inspections in production lines, allowing them to more easily detect and report anomalies.
This project, coordinated by KIT-AR, INESC TEC and Volkswagen Autoeuropa, plans to draw new marks on the automotive industry.
DEO project is financed the Portugal 2020 programme and by the European Fund of Regional Development for the European Union, reaching a global budget superior to 830 thousand euros.
