The convergence of robotics and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) in manufacturing presents a transformative synergy. The synergy between robotics technology (industrial robots) with high-level Human-Machine interaction through an immersive AR/VR offers revolutionary changes and paradigm shifts of the industry. The AR/VR-based training and planning optimize tasks, reducing errors and enhancing efficiency of the robotic applications. This partnership holds promise for an innovative manufacturing landscape, combining traditional skills with cutting-edge proficiency, especially in the high-mixed-low-volume production such as aero-manufacturing industries
