VISTRA aims at the development of a comprehensive platform for simulation and training of manual assembly processes based on advanced ICT-technologies and concepts, such as auto-generation and re-use of data, realistic physical behaviour, game-based learning, advanced user-interaction and cross-disciplinary information sharing.
Fraunhofer IGD brings-in its understanding for virtual development processes and its expertise in data processing. Data processing here spans both, the geometric data plus the structural data describing product structure and assembly process information. The data must be processed and filtered in an intelligent form to create a (to be developed) knowledge platform in VISTRA - to our knowledge the first integrated knowledge based representation scheme for assembly processes and training. Thus, we further contribute with our knowledge modelling skills to a) create a meaningful knowledge representation and b) serve the interactive training simulation with the relevant information. We further collaborate with partners and training feedback aspects for the knowledge platform.
