Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Augmented Reality (AR) is one of the most important technologies that takes part in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and for this reason, this document presents the development of an AR application for real-time control of a Robotic Arm with IoT communication. The application provides AR visualization of the state of the process in real-time, as well as an interface for controlling the position of the robotic arm. The document presents a detailed description of the hardware architecture that includes the AR device, the AR marker, and the infrastructure used for interacting with the robot. In addition, it is presented the architecture of the software for communication of the AR application with the process, to establish remote and real-time control of the position of the robotic arm using IoT. The AR application has been tested with a robotic arm used in the field of medicine, participating in the analysis process of blood chemistry in biological tests carried out in clinical laboratories. The development of this application has various advantages, highlighting the use of low-cost technological devices, easy acquisition, and the remote connection that improves the control efficiency of the robot, improving the security for user integrity because he/she is not exposed to dangerous environments.
