Application: Displaying layout-based instructions using augmented reality (Patent ID: US20230274218A1)

The patent filed by Panasonic Holdings Corp. describes a system and method for a supply chain entity to manage inventory and generate packing plans for items. The system includes an instruction rendering device that displays augmented reality instructions and feedback based on the packing plan. The device has sensors and a display and can overlay the instructions and feedback in connection with the physical location of a container. It can update the location of the instructions and feedback as the user progresses in following the instructions. The device can also display the instructions and feedback based on the movement of the container or the device itself. It can identify when ordered items have been correctly placed and oriented in the container according to the packing plan.

The system can be implemented using various devices such as a head-mounted display, smartphone, tablet computer, mobile device, or projector. The augmented reality instructions and feedback can be displayed by overlaying visual elements over a camera feed and adjusting their appearance and placement based on the camera frames. The instructions and feedback can include visual elements superimposed on the real-world packing area and the ordered items. They can provide information on the orientation of items, the stacking of items, and the specific placement of items in the container.

The feedback provided by the device can include visual elements such as colors, symbols, or text, as well as auditory elements such as speech and sounds. The feedback can indicate the completion or incompletion of an instruction, with the degree of incompletion also being identified. The device can map the object visualization and packing area boundary to the physical environment, ensuring that the representation of the container and the packing area remains consistent regardless of the device's location or position.

The method described in the patent involves receiving the current state of items in a supply chain network and displaying augmented reality instructions and feedback based on a packing plan. The instructions and feedback are overlaid on the physical location of the container and updated as the user progresses. The method also includes displaying the instructions and feedback based on the movement of the container or the device, and identifying when the ordered items have been correctly placed in the container.

Overall, the patent describes a system and method that utilize augmented reality instructions and feedback to improve the efficiency and accuracy of packing items in a supply chain entity's inventory. The system can be implemented using various devices and provides real-time guidance to users during the packing process.
