Abstract

Augmented Reality (AR) is one of the key technology in the Industry 4.0 development. The robotic manufacturing is very useful because of their versatility and repeatability in industrial tasks. However, as technologies advance, complex and high-cost control systems are required, hence the need to create low-cost and efficient control systems, with low complexity when operating them. A virtual control proposed in Unity 3D allowing the application to be much more interactive and very easy for the user. The authors describe the working scenario, the overall architecture, communication protocol in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT) and give design and implementation details on the AR application.
