Abstract [en]

This thesis evaluates how a head mounted display (HMD) can be used to increase usability compared to existing computer programs that are used during maintenance work on vehicles. Problems identified during a case study in a vehicle workshop are first described. As an attempt to solve some of the identified problems a prototype application using a HMD was developed. The prototype application aids the user during troubleshooting of systems on the vehicle by leading the mechanic with textual information and augmented reality (AR). Assessment of the prototype application was done by comparing it to the existing computer program and measuring error rate and time to completion for a predefined task. Usability was also measured using the System Usability Scale. The assessment showed that HMDs can provide higher usability in terms of efficiency and satisfaction. Furthermore, the thesis describes and discusses other possibilities and limitations that usage of HMDs and AR can lead to that were identified both from theory and during implementation.
