Many operations that are done manually, such as assembly operations, can be difficult to instruct to someone working in an unstructured environment that is not already familiar with the operation. The typical approach is to take pictures of the system and attempt to provide instructions using the pictures with some annotations. We have explored a variety of visual aids that might be used to provide a more real-time feedback to guide such manual operations. These methods include indirect feedback tools, such as signals or graphs to be interpreted, as well as direct methods that provide a simulated or real view of the operation as the user works. This paper will explore some of the pros and cons of these methods, and present some very preliminary results that suggest future directions for this work.
