Skoda uses augmented reality to help loading pallets

At its CKD centre in Mladá Boleslav, Skoda is using augmented reality to support logistics staff. 

As part of a large-scale trial, video mapping projections assist staff when loading sets of components onto pallets. Laser projections indicate the correct position for a part and text, images and video provide information on how to optimally secure and protect the components. The system also notices when a part has been placed incorrectly and helps workers correct this.

the use of augmented reality also helps in other areas. As there is no longer any need to print documents in this process, the CKD centre is saving a large amount of paper.
