The ISS Program is striving to minimize crew time spent on maintenance tasks to increase time for science and operating payloads. This project supports that goal by making complex medical tests or emergency procedures easier to perform by the crew. Since the use of electronic procedures for onboard medical procedures is pervasive across multiple domains, other potential AR medical applications will continually be identified for current or future space hardware including ISS Robonaut 2 (ISS-R2). The medical AR technology can be applied to multiple industries, provided that the domain knowledge captured is well adapted to the targeted users. As our focus is the Human Spaceflight domain, and specifically the on board procedure domain, this project can directly benefit other commercial space participants. The concept can also be applied to other government agencies such as the DoD, to develop specialized assistants to the soldier of the future. The smart assistant would enable the users to obtain the critical information needed at the right time, cutting through the clutter of possible similar, but not interesting, pieces of data. Outside of aerospace and military domains there is also a significant opportunity for use of this technology in telemedicine, rural health and emergency responder applicationsMore »
