Abstract: This poster introduces European commission funded H2020 project called WEKIT – Wearable Experience for Knowledge Intensive Training. This three-year project has left two years and it will produce a WEKIT platform which exploits Augment training in situ with live expert guidance, a tacit learning experience and a re-enactment of the expert, in knowledge-intensive environments. Project has three industrial cases: (1) Aircraft maintenance: exploiting Augmented Reality and Wearable Technology for inspections, decisions making and safety (2) Healthcare: exploiting Augmented Reality for improving innovation in technology and responsibility in healthcare applications for medical imaging; and (3) Space: exploiting Augmented Reality and Wearable Technology for astronauts training and for supporting the assembly integration and test of payloads and sub-systems. The WEKIT platform will be tested together with end-users with iterative development loops.
