MMAssist II

Goals and Innovation

The goal of the project partners in MMAssist II is to research and implement modular, reusable assistance systems for employees in production companies. For that, the project partners will work on the exemplary uses cases Maintenance and Service, Arming of Machines and Simultaneous Handling of Multiple Machines, and Montage to analyze the technical and sozio-economic requirements for assistance systems in these areas.
Based on a strongly context-oriented requirements analysis, the partners will implement so-called “Assistance Units”, which are modular components for assistance systems. Assistance Units are defined in a way so that they can be applied to different application contexts.
The partners will implement a software framework with which Assistance Units can be dynamically
configured to act as assistance system for a given application. To configure the Assistance Unit, different input and output modalities as well as modules for context generation are needed, which will also be developed in the project. To measure and evaluate the efficiency and feasibility of the project’s approach, the partners will implement lab-based prototypes of defined Assistance Units and evaluate them in real production environments.
