    Ships and offshore sites are specialist products with high demands for efficiency and quality throughout the entire product life cycle. All processes, from draft via production all the way to operation, can be supported by 3D computer graphics. The administration and use of the complex and very large data amounts as well as the environmental conditions this capital equipment is exposed to require customized IT solutions. In the future, real-time capable visualizations and image processing are to secure designs, provide guidance for maintenance and repair or route captains.

    In recent decades, demographic change has mainly been a problem for old town centers. Shopping and living facilities shifted increasingly to the local area borders; Old cities are struggling with problems such as vacancy and foreclosure. Many buildings not only do not meet modern energy standards, but also do not reflect the modern rooms’ allocation demanded. An innovative and interactive research project is designed to reactivate the potential of the historical centers of the municipalities of Münster and Otzberg as well as the city of Bensheim.

    3D Arile is a ZIM (Central Innovation Program for SME) funded research project. The core element of the project is the development of a novel augmented reality system using a head mounted display with see-through technology. This, in combination with a stereo near infrared (NIR) camera system and the fluorescent dye  indocyanine green (ICG), should form an intraoperative visualization tool that can be used to visualize and extract sentinel lymph nodes (SLN).

    Für die Wartung von Flugzeugen benötigt der Service-Techniker eine Vielzahl von Unterlagen, die zudem immer auf dem neuesten Stand sein müssen. Die herkömmlichen Handbücher und Checklisten werden durch einen Tablet Computer mit der Augmented Reality-Applikation vom Fraunhofer IGD ersetzt. Die Applikation liefert, passend zu dem aktuellen Arbeitsschritt, alle relevanten Informationen, die räumlich verortet an den einzelnen Bauteilen und Komponenten dargestellt werden.
