With the advancement of technology, augmented reality glasses have been started to using in all areas. With augmented reality glasses, users can reach their wishes more easily and comfortably in different sectors such as education, entertainment, construction and automotive. However, it is not known how these glasses create a cognitive load on the user. In this article, the effect of augmented reality glasses to be used on an assembly line of an automotive company on the cognitive load was investigated. EEG, which detects fine fluctuations in instant load, was used for the measurement of cognitive load. The study was carried out with 4 participants (2 Female – 2 Male) and analyzed according to the difference between the ages (35 above and below). There was no difference between the participants under the age of 35 and above the age of 35 years. Therefore, it is seen that over 35 years old people will not have extra cognitive load in using the augmented reality glasses.
