• The instantreality framework is a high-performance Mixed-Reality-system, which combines various Input- and Output devices, application and rendering components and provides a single and consistent interface for AR/VR developments. Those components have been developed at the Fraunhofer IGD in close cooperation with industrial partners. The framework offers a comprehensive set of features to support classic Virtual Reality and advanced Augmented Reality equally well.

    INA – Intelligent Anomaly Detection for miniaturized sensor systems and data loggers

    The aim of the subproject "piSmart-Ina" is the recognition and visualization of anomalies based on heterogeneous sensor data collected with intelligent data loggers. This involves analyzing data with pattern recognition methods and porting anomaly classifiers from analysis platforms to the data loggers so that they are independent and autarkic.

    Interactive exploration of simulation results on large, unstructured, tetrahedral meshes typically requires significant hardware resources such as a visualization cluster. NVIDIA RTX™ is a technology that was originally designed to accelerate ray tracing in games. By leveraging RTX technology, we have successfully accelerated direct volume rendering of tetrahedral meshes, achieving interactive rates on consumer-level hardware. In the video, a mesh with 12.3 million tetrahedra is rendered in less than 100ms per frame (more than 10 frames per second) on an NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti.

    As part of INWASA, a cloud-based platform is being developed that uses interactive simulations for in situ decision-making support for flooding scenarios. This initiative combines the current know-how of the two competence centers Spatial Information Management and Interactive Engineering Technologies. The platform is intended for geoservices providers. In this day and age, these small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) invest a great amount of time in developing water flow simulations since they lack automated data integration capabilities.

  • For geospatial applications, huge amounts of heterogeneous data sets of different topology are collected nowadays with different data acquisition techniques. Especially airborne and mobile platform LIDAR data are becoming ubiquitous, but SAR and stereophotogrammetry also contribute to the rapid growth of geotopographical data sets to sizes of tens to hundreds of TBs.

  • Motivation and Goals

    Current situation

    • Valuable information exists in huge geospatial datasets but is hidden and not integrated in the decision process.
    • Often it is only accessed for damage assessment in a “what went wrong?” analysis (e.g., for the 2010 toxic mud spill in Ajka, Hungary, and the 2011 flooding in Genoa, Italy) Objectives.

  • Cavitation effects on ship propellers lead to increased erosion and a loss of efficiency. In the cavitation process vapour cavities occur and dissolve by implosion. Short-term but considerable side effects in this course are extremely high accelerations, temperatures and pressures. They result in a damage on the surface of solid objects, like e. g. ship propellers, where in the course of time larger particles break away from the surface. Nevertheless, a detailed scientific explanation for this effect does not yet exist.

    The Fraunhofer IGD Living Lab was established in 2008 as a showroom and test bed for Ambient Intelligence and Active & Assisted Living applications. It has been featured in numerous articles, TV reports, and scientific publications.

    The background is a STAR home automation system, driven by the semantic universAAL platform - a highly innovative IoT and AAL solution, promoted by the European Commission in their H2020 research calls. The Living Lab has several permanent and numerous dynamic demonstrators that are constantly updated to reflect the current range or research.
