See-Through Augmented Reality

Augmented reality in the industrial workplace can benefit workplace safety and ease demands on operators. C-studio is developing the Forklift of the Future together with Toyota Material Handling. Using augmented reality, forklift operators will be able to see through obstructions with enhanced situational awareness, with minimal hindrance from wearables.

 

The technological challenge is to implement AR technology in a seamless way for the best possible experience for the operator. The user’s view of their environment is constantly changing based on their position, and by tracking their position using sensors, the augmented display reacts and adjusts accordingly. This technology has huge potential for use in other applications, industrial and otherwise.
