Paper Abstract

One of the important measures to prevent undesired events consists in informing a machine operator about the appearance of a hazardous situation quickly and effectively enough. In order to conduct the investigations into possibilities of application of the Augmented Reality systems assigned for drawing the operator's attention to the hazards appearing at the workstation, two special test stands have been developed. For that purpose special glasses applying commonly available safety glasses have been designed for generation of warning signals. Red luminescent diodes were employed for generation of virtual images formed by means of diaphragms, which shaped it and supplied with additional inscriptions. The initial perception tests of the warning signals generated using the AG technique that were performed have proved that these signals can successfully serve as a warning to the machine or device operator against an impending hazardous event.
