Audiovisual Feedback to Augmented Manual Activities During Space Walks

In space, it is silent and auditory feedback is not available. However, such feedback
has a high impact on the quality of manual werk. Precise audiovisual feedback can ensure that tasks
are performed optimally, e.g, when using a tool or disconnecting a cable.
For this reason, we will support the werk in the silence of space by Augmented Reality (AR)
auditive and visual feedback system. Astronauts can use the system during spacewalks. lt then emits
realistic synthetic sounds according to the current task or activity. The astronaut will be further
supported by visual elements to provide the highest possible level of feedback.
