Project title Virtual vision enhancement and intuitive interaction through Augmented Reality on industrial trucks (ViSIER)
Project duration 01.06.2019 – 31.05.2021
Press release

One of the biggest challenges when operating a forklift truck is the driver's limited view of his surroundings, especially when storing and retrieving load carriers or transporting bulky loads. Different camera and assistance systems are used on the vehicles to support the driver and his environment and increase the operational safety of the vehicle. Controls and screens for displaying order data, vehicle parameters or the playback of rear view or fork arms cameras, as used today in most vehicles, also represent an additional visual restriction.

The aim of this research project is to implement an AR-based operator assistance system for forklift trucks, with the support of which visual restrictions of the driver, caused by vehicle components and load, are compensated and vehicle and order data are networked with the driver depending on the situation. The interaction with the assistance system is to take place via gestures and virtual elements.
