Augmented reality system facilitates manual manufacturing of products made of fiber-reinforced composite materials

The manufacturing of products made of fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) often still involves a number of manual work steps: the position and orientation of the semi-finished fiber-reinforced materials must be aligned precisely by hand to ensure that the product has the required levels of stability and flexibility after lamination and curing. Ultimately, this is the only way of enabling the user to fully exploit the advantages of the FRP material. To support the manual deposition process, known as preforming, the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT in Aachen, Germany, has developed intuitive software for commercially available augmented reality glasses: The system specifies the correct deposition of the semi-finished materials as a virtual representation on the mold and can thus significantly improve the quality and performance of FRP production processes.

Game-changing trends

The last decade has seen an amazing advancement in embedded system development techniques, tools and technologies. Today, we now have microcontrollers with clock speeds above 1 GHz with more than 4 megabytes for flash storage. This dramatic increase in capabilities for microcontrollers and their affordable costs is going to usher in a completely new design paradigm in the decade to come.
