Abstract

In this review paper, the main objective was to try to find studies relating to augmented reality and virtual reality and the use of ergonomics and anthropology for the betterment of human life by reviewing articles incorporating studies related to ergonomics, human-machine interaction, and increment in functional perspective by using artificial means like artificial neural networks. These works suggest several directions for ergonomics research in India, including the use of virtual and augmented reality. This area is comparatively new while keeping the Indian population in consideration and the use of this methodology, which needs further exploration and research application.

Keywords: ergonomics, virtual and augmented reality, anthropometric variables
