Dr Fridolin Wild of the Performance Augmentation Lab gave an invited lecture on how to use Augmented Reality for training in production to engineers at BMW’s Global Knowledge Day on Thursday, February 23. The event was live streamed from Oxford to Munich and the other German plants, the British plants in Goodwood and Hams Hall, the plant in Spartenburg, USA, and the plant in Rosslyn, South Africa. This is part of an ongoing collaboration, exploring the potential for human performance augmentation methodologies and technologies in manufacturing, quality assurance, and logistics at BMW. The lecture covered an introduction to foundational concepts and theories around perception, experience, and augmented reality, an overview on base technologies, and examples from augmenting human work performance through expert capturing and live/recorded guidance.
