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

  • COLABIS will design and implement a Web platform that enables and eases the development of urban early warning systems, specifically focusing on information fusion derived from sensors, crowdsourcing, geosimulations, as well as administrative and historical data. The project focusses on local heavy rain, flooding and cascading events affecting urban water and sewage infrastructures but also traffic infrastructures.

    In this project, Fraunhofer IDM@NTU is collaborating with the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine to develop a novel collaborative environment for group based learning in the classroom.

    Here, a multi-touch table for group discussions is linked to individual tablets of the students via a wireless client-server architecture. Digital content can be examined, passed between clients, and annotated using both the touch table as well as the tablets. Intuitive touch gestures are used as an easy way of interaction with the learning material provided by the teacher.

    In dentistry, imaging data (X-rays) is the first source of information for an initial assessment of a patient’s dental health and is also the basis for further planning of a patient’s treatment. Both extraoral images, such as a panoramic radiograph or a lateral teleradiograph, and intraoral images, such as bitewing radiographs, are used. Panoramic radiographs are typically the first image since all of the teeth, including roots, are pictured very clearly.

    Head/neck model with over 40 anatomical structures.

    Medical imaging data contains anatomical information that, given the volume of data and especially with radiological 3D imaging data, can no longer reasonably be marked/contoured by hand. The challenge for automatic processes is that not all anatomical regions stand out from their surroundings through strong differences in contrast. Nevertheless, radiologists are able to assign such regions in the imaging data. For automatic algorithms, this requires representing the anatomical knowledge of a clinical expert in a form that is comprehensible to the computer.

  • Mass customization and 3D printing centres are a recent trend since a few years. But how to support novice designers and laymen in designing workable objects within some given design space for 3D printed objects? CUPstomizer is a prototype solution that integrates parametric modelling, simulation and optimization approaches to enable the user to vary design parameters and to guide him/her to choose parameters satisfying a goal function of maintaining stability while adding as little as possible material – all in an easy-to-use, interactive 3D application.

    Data@Hand detects deviations from the normal operation of a ma-chine

    Data@Hand is an automated data analysis framework for various applications. Data@Hand can be used to quickly analyze data, detect anomalies early and draw conclusions about the significance of data. When used in predictive maintenance, issues can be analyzed to determine the cause, predicted and avoided in the future. Data@Hand connects AI tools to existing visual data processing platforms, such as Plant@Hand3D or Health@Hand.
