Development of virtual environments and tools for Virtual Reality Applications

In order to optimise specific operational processes, the Fraunhofer Institute develops VR-based tools and system solutions in the mixed reality laboratory that are specially adapted to the individual needs of a wide range of companies. With the help of these tools, for example, assembly processes in special machine production, CE-compliant safety analyses or material flow planning can be carried out more efficiently.

Their VR technologies offer

  • a digital image of all processes throughout the product life cycle
  • Individual software solutions for all areas of the product and production equipment life cycle

Their VR-based tools are

  • modularly constructed
  • specific depending on the application
  • Expandable at any time
  • ubiquitously applicable
  • Sustainable and connectable
  • intuitive to operate
  • offer integrated standard interfaces

Shogun has been designed for the requirements and workflow of VFX/Entertainment users. The focus is to save time, and this is achieved by doing as much in real time as possible. To this end, Shogun introduces unique features such as real time actor calibration, automatic recovery of bumped cameras and unbreakable solving – the latter enables you to get a good skeletal solve even when a high proportion of markers is occluded, which again minimizes clean-up time afterwards.

Tracker has been designed for the requirements and workflow of Engineering users wanting to track the position and orientation of objects with as little effort and as low latency as possible. Perfect for many applications in robotics, UAV tracking, VR and human-machine interaction, Tracker lets you define what you want to track with a couple of mouse clicks – and then you can just leave in the background tracking. A simple SDK lets you connect the output data stream to your own software.

Vantage is Vicon’s flagship range of cameras. The sensors have resolutions of 5, 8 and 16 megapixels, with sample rates up to 2000Hz – this allows you to capture fast movements with very high accuracy. The cameras also have built-in temperature and bump sensors, as well as a clear display, to warn you if cameras have moved physically or due to thermal expansion. High-powered LEDs and sunlight filters mean that the Vantage is also the best choice for outdoor use and large volumes.

Rapid technical development in the Elbedom

From virtual planning, simulation and modelling to technology-based qualification in interaction spaces, the Fraunhofer Institute develops system solutions from a single source.
