Modular, connected, and interactive… The new assistance system from Bosch Rexroth, ActiveAssist, is revolutionising the manual workstation. The ActiveAssist software solution supports employees with targeted information and help functions to guarantees high process reliability.
The open software solution is another building block on the road to the factory of the future. ActiveAssist identifies the workpiece by RFID or barcode and loads the required work plan immediately onto the monitor. Work instructions are then projected directly onto the work surface using a projector and the correct grab container is marked. This guides the employee step by step through the workflow, all the information ergonomically positioned in their field of vision.
Modular: ActiveAssist has a modular design in both software and hardware and is freely configurable. Users can equip each assembly station with different assistance functions. In addition, the open software incorporates sensors from various manufacturers.
Connected: ActiveAssist uses web-based software and is a flexible and open system. This guarantees global access and allows numerous systems and assembly stations to be thoroughly connected in real-time.
Interactive: By incorporating touchscreens, 3D cameras and projectors, various interactive assistance functions can be realised. From the projection of work instructions and light pulse guidance to tool tracking and gesture recognition.
