Abstract [en]

In this paper, we present an integrated intuitive system for assembly operators training and assembly process planning by combining virtual reality with motion-tracking technologies. The developed conceptual prototype for assembly planning and training enables individuals to interact with a virtual environment in real time. It extends the new technologies of motion tracking and integrates them with virtual environment technologies to create real-time virtual work cell simulations in which assembly operators may be immersed with hands-on experiences. In addition to operators training, the experimental results to date are presented to demonstrate the potential contributions of human skills in achieving effective assembly planning including disassembly operations. It is expected that this approach will lead to environment-friendly and sustainable operations by conserving energy and cost that are first tested in a human-emerged virtual system.
