NASA-JPL Google Glass
MetadataShow full item record
The NASA-JPL Google Glass team seeks to further enhance the working conditions of assemblers at the NASA-JPL assembly warehouses. When an assembler is working, it is necessary to retrieve information about an assembly item. This information includes torque specifications for fasteners, mechanical or electrical handling of assemblies, or problem reports associated with the scanned item. In addition, the assembler should be able to walk through a procedural checklist for installing parts. The problem arises when assemblers need to search for information on either a computer or a document. Doing so slows assembly time, and can be dangerous when introduced in confined areas. Introducing Google Glass technology will allow assemblers to access this information in a hands-free manner, allowing for a safer and more efficient working environment.
