Tesla will give workers their factories futuristic augmented reality glasses
Tesla company plans to introduce new ways of working. Earlier, employees of the plant used Google Glass, but they failed to meet many standards. And now the company for the production of electric cars wants to use its own development. And this creates from scratch futuristic augmented reality glasses with a number of interesting features that should speed up the production process and improve the quality of electric assembly.
The construction of any car, including the Tesla Model 3, requires a connection weight of various details. To reduce the number of problems with the fit (and recently inspection services found on Tesla pipeline a "significant discrepancy"), it was decided to use the augmented reality glasses. On the company filed two patents last week, which give an idea of what may be the device.
First, the AR-headset will be solid enough, as it will act as a protection for the eyes of employees. Second, it will serve as a means of communication, replacing the radio. According to Business Insider, the device will operate as follows: the headset can indicate the junction of parts, prompt, where produce spot welding, but it is not the most interesting. Thanks to the system of object recognition, the device can determine all the details and point out their relationship. Moreover, taking any part in the hand, the headset will give information about the operating characteristics of the subject and give information on how, where and by means of which the object set.
Back in April of this year, Elon Musk said the plant for cars in California collecting "too much is automated." Nevertheless, Tesla wants to find a middle ground between automatic and manual labor, so the probability of occurrence of such headsets for the workers is extremely high. The very same apparatus described in the application as follows:
"Application of computer vision and augmented reality in the manufacturing process. The device is designed to significantly increase the speed and efficiency of production processes, in particular, automotive parts and the assembly of vehicles. "
