    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.

  • 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.

  • The aim of M3D is to examine the entire process chain from mobile 3D acquisition to 3D print in the industrial field. The vast potential of location-independent mobile devices and the so-called “cloud” will be analyzed by means of a specific application scenario and technologies be optimized. Using the example of components and workpieces in industrial applications, their potential will be dissected conceptually and technologically and demonstrated in a prototypical form.

    The process chain from mobile 3D acquisition to 3D print is the following:

  • In the maritime sector the training of personnel on ships and offshore installations, and especially its quality, is of great importance. Strict legal requirements and the increasing complexity of technical systems but also the trend to reduce crews lead to higher demands on this training.

    The already existing virtual training systems for the maritime sector so far are lacking widely applicable training environments. Developed at great expense they just cover but single training aspects, and due to high costs have not been introduced broadly on the market.
