Brugh Industrial Engineering has partnered with the University of Indianapolis R.B. Annis School of Engineering to develop an intelligent visual factory annunciation system. The system utilizes moving head lighting fixtures from the entertainment/concert industry to provide immediate visual feedback for problems, troubleshooting, and process guidance in a manufacturing environment. This project required the student design team to evaluate existing protocols from multiple industries and create a common platform applicable to a factory environment. The end product will be able to direct attention to specific 3D locations. The project will be integrated into already existing systems using a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) that will run the program needed for the lights to pinpoint problems on a manufacturing floor.
