Virtual and Augmented reality applications are suitable to enhance both Smart Factory and Smart Product scenarios. In a Smart Factory scenarios, production systems, machineries, robots, warehouses, AGVs need to be properly virtualised, while in a Smart Product scenarios, virtual models are needed for complex products such as airplanes, vessels, trucks. Typical applications are concerned with remote training, virtual design and commissioning, maintenance operations involving both engineers, workers and even citizens.
The T3 topic looks for product-oriented or factory-oriented virtual / augmented reality IT experiments, which are using the MIDIH "Data in Motion" and "Data at Rest" architectures and reference implementations and the MIDIH Training Facilities. Candidates are required to provide advanced VR/AR applications based on the MIDIH architecture and to experiment such systems in one of our two Training Factories in Milano and Bilbao
