Open Request - AROT - Augmented Reality for Operations and Training





Request ID:  AROT

Request Title:  Augmented Reality (AR) for Operations and Training

Submitting Organization:  NASA Johnson Space Center

For Questions about Request:  Send e-mail to Collaborations@TCC-Houston.org


POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS:

Energy, chemical, medical, emergency operations (first responders, rescue, and police), Department of Defense (DoD), hazardous operations, aerospace sectors, and others

KEYWORDS: 

Augmented reality, wearable computing and sensor technology, electronic procedures

PURPOSE: 

NASA JSC seeks to advance Augmented Reality (AR)-based operations and training capabilities within these domains. Successful NASA JSC human spaceflight missions depend on execution of well-defined operational plans. Astronaut and ground control teams receive extensive training in the procedures required to carry out those plans and then execute those procedures during the mission. As electronic procedures replace paper checklists and longer duration missions are considered, there is a need for software technology to lead the way.

TECHNOLOGY:

Specific domain expertise and interest areas include:

  • AR technology combined with electronic procedures;
  • Electronic procedures and AR authoring tools for training and performance support;
  • Just-In-Time Training (JITT);
  • Distributed AR team training;
  • AR system architecture development for distributed computing paradigms;
  • Machine vision for registration;
  • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) localization and logistics management;
  • Wearable computing and sensor fusion technology for Automation and Robotics (A&R); and
  • A&R interactive control of virtual and real objects with gesture, voice and haptic devices.
