This video demonstrates an instruction generation system that can be used to automatically generate instructions for complex assembly operations performed by humans on factory shop floors. Multimodal information—text , graphical annotations, and 3D animations—is used to create easy-to-follow instructions. This thereby reduces learning time and eliminates the possibility of assembly errors. The system also consists of an automated part identification module that enables the human to identify, and pick, the correct part from a set of similar looking parts. The system's ability to automatically translate assembly plans into instructions enables a significant reduction in the time taken to generate instructions and update them in response to design changes.
