“Maritime 4.0” is the current buzzword in the maritime industry and includes the digitization of all processes from planning through design to maintenance. The abundance and heterogeneity of the data, however, presents difficulties for many companies. The 3D data form an essential part of the so-called "digital twin," however 3D data are often only accessible to specialists using expensive, complex software and powerful hardware.
Fraunhofer IGD's webVis/instant3Dhub technology overcomes these limitations and grants all authorized users access to up-to-date 3D data. These data can easily be linked to available data from other areas (f.e. planning, logistics, purchasing) and thus provide intuitive and efficient access to a wide range of digital data in the company or in a corporate network.
The key lies in the specialized data processing, along with the consistent use of web technologies and open standards. A skillful interaction between server and client enables even complete models of a ship or an offshore platform to be visualized in real time. The user can utilize a desktop PC, a tablet, or AR glasses for visualization and interaction.
Our clients benefit from the advantages of our webVis/instant3Dhub solution:
- No installation of software is required on the device. A current web browser is sufficient.
- Low-end devices can also be used for visualization. The server then takes over the rendering of the 3D data and sends a video stream to the device.
- Based on the sole visualization of the 3D data in the browser, web applications can be developed in a simple manner. The applications may then be utilized, to realize a particular view of the data or support a concrete process step, for example.
With the help of instant3Dhub a broad range of processes in the company can be supported digitally, which saves time for obtaining information, improves the quality of decisions, and avoids errors caused by accessing obsolete or incomplete data.
We can help you bring important data to wherever you need it for your daily work.
