Visual information systems for factory processes in the transport sector
Aim of the VIS4FACTORY project was to outline a set of enabling technologies based on the paradigm of advanced visualization (virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, multisensory interaction) applied to the manufacturing context of the design and production of advanced materials and components for the sector of transport. In particular, it is expected to intervene in specific phases of the manufacturing company value chain, namely:
The virtual, immersive, cooperative and concurrent design The quality check of the product / material / component;
Maintenance processes Production planning, advancement and optimization;
