The MASTER project investigates the intersection of robots and Extended Reality (XR) in different industrial settings. XR is a term that includes Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR), and everything in between. In the future, robots will be increasingly enhanced with XR applications, and industrial workers need to understand both technologies and must be able to use also hybrid solutions. This requires specific education and training programs.
The objective of MASTER is to boost the XR ecosystem for teaching and training of robotics in manufacturing by providing an Open XR platform that integrates key functionalities for creating safe robotic environments, programming flexible robotic applications and integrating advanced interaction mechanisms. MASTER will also deliver rich training content on robotics.
