    Abstract

    This industrial paper introduces the work done within the WEKIT - Wearable Experience for Knowledge Intensive Training - project. WEKIT is a three years project funded by the European Commission under the H2020 programme. It aims at creating an AR-based technological platform and an industry-focused learning methodology, then to widely share its methods and research findings and make them part of a repertoire of Europe's communities in Technology- Enhanced Learning (e.g. content developers, trainers) and end-users (e.g. in Industries). WEKIT exploits Augmented training in situ with live expert guidance capturing tacit learning experience with Wearable Technology (WT) and re-enactment of the expert with Augmented Reality (AR). The project is supported by three Industrial Cases: (1) Aircraft maintenance: exploiting AR and WT for inspection, decision making and safety; (2) Healthcare: exploiting AR and WT for improving innovation in technology and responsibility in healthcare applications and medical imaging; (3) Space: exploiting AR and WT for astronauts training and for supporting the assembly, integration and test of payloads and sub-systems. In this paper, we will focus on the space Industrial case.
