Intelligent system for manual assembly positions in the industry


A new intelligent system has been developed for manual assembly positions in the industry. This system aims to minimize assembly errors by operators by validating operations, providing information and guiding the operator in real time through a man-machine interface based on Augmented Reality

The system integrates the assembly process into the traceability system and prepares reports and statistics on cycle times and productivity. In addition, it facilitates the flexibility of workstations by including a reconfigurable fixing system that allows the same workstation to be used for several functionalities.


  • Eliminate product defects by preventing, correcting and detecting human errors.
  • Accurate sequence of operations and validation.
  • Accurate detection and tracking of tools and hands.
  • Provide information “in situ” (man-machine Augmented Reality Interface).
  • Time control and traceability.
  • Safety, ergonomics, training.


  • Develop a system to track tools and hands of the operator.
  • Develop an augmented reality-based guidance interface.
  • Develop a process validation system.
  • Develop a multi-part reconfigurable fixation system.
  • Develop a perceptive glove for tool-less operations.
  • Perform verification and prototype testing.

Expected results

  • Post control system (PUMAN_SC).
  • Reconfigurable fastening system (PUMAN_SFR).
  • Perceptive glove system (PUMAN_SGP).
  • Tool and glove detection and tracking system (PUMAN_SDS).
  • Guidance system based on augmented reality (PUMAN_SGRA).
  • Mounting station.
