In my research I explore how to support workers with Head-Worn Display with and without Mixed Reality. In earlier work I used Google Glass to improve how workers are guided through quality inspection tasks on the conveyor belt, followed by using ODG R-7 Mixed Reality glasses in the same area. Lately I decided to take a swing to understand another important application area of Mixed Reality in industry: Training and education of workers. Overall my work aims to further define uses cases and identify chances and limits for designing for using these devices at the workplace.
