Abstract
This paper describes the development and evaluation of a graphical user interface for a wearable augmented reality (AR) welding system. The AR-system enables the user to perceive his close environment more precisely than ordinary welding helmets and to receive additional online information about the welding process itself. During the usability test, single icons as well as user interfaces on an industrial PC and on two different head mounted displays - i-glasses video see-through and MicroOptical look-around display - were tested. Various methods were employed for this purpose, such as observation, thinking aloud, interviews and walkthroughs. The results indicated a positive attitude of the users towards the innovative AR-system. The participants expressed their comments and recommendations, which would be considered for further improvements and design of the system.
