    The efficient connection of computer assisted design (CAD) and virtual reality (VR) is of great importance to product developers nowadays. They increasingly use VR models for design reviews and presentations. The basis for these models is usually the raw CAD created by design engineers. The transformation of CAD data into VR models is done by conversion software, that usually comes with expensive VR data processing tools.

    The Competence Center for Industrial Applications of Fraunhofer IGD develops the CAD conversion software CAD2X.

  • The path of light is influenced by refraction at transitions between media with different refractive indices. This results in non-linear distortions for image recording under water, which are a major problem for many tasks of the computer vision.

  • Anyone who works primarily at a PC is familiar with this: neck pain or burning eyes. If a particularly stressful situation is added to this, vital parameters such as heartbeat or breathing also change. To prevent stress from leading to permanent health problems, early recognition of these signs is particularly important as part of occupational health management. This is what the CareCam software does: using artificial intelligence, it evaluates posture and vital data and suggests relaxation measures. All it needs is a standard webcam.

  • What is CAxMan:

    CAxMan is a Research and Innovation action, that establishes cloud-based toolboxes, workflows and a One-Stop-Shop for computer-aided technologies supporting the design, simulation, and process planning for additive manufacturing. The project sets up novel workflows and services for discrete manufacturing by showcasing the computer-aided technologies as services and workflows in the Cloud, from design to production of physical parts.

    The EC funded project CEMEC aims at creating a close and cost-effective network between nine European museum collections, six technical partners and further research institutions in order to examine both the connections between Early Medieval collection objects (300-1000 AD) and the objects’ regions of origin with the aid of innovative IT solutions. Within the frame of CEMEC, a mobile exhibition will be realized at three different venues, including 10 objects of outstanding quality of each participating museum collection.

  • Our world is increasingly described three-dimensionally. 3D computer models play an important role in city planning, tourism, and knowledge transfer. The CityServer3D allowed for the first time to make a lively use of 3D city models. The software could manage two- and three-dimensional geographic data and connected them to each other.

    Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is essential for the digitalization of the manufacturing sector; notwithstanding, less than 25% of the manufacturing companies in Europe profit from ICT-enabled solutions. In order to democratically boost the competitiveness of the European manufacturers (especially Small and Medium-sized Enterprises - SMEs), innovative solutions need to consider technological and commercial scalability from the beginning. From this perspective, the cloudification of services has become the ideal enabler in the manufacturing digitalization.

    The ambition of the CO-VERSATILE project is to gather and make available through a dedicated platform and ecosystem a critical mass of competences, technologies and services to allow the European Manufacturing industry to rapidly re-orient and repurpose its production capacity to meet the urgent and sudden needs coming from drastic changes in the market such as the ones brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be based upon the generalization, multiplication and replication of technologies and services that will be adapted and integrated within 7 Manufacturing Settings.
