Virtual Industrial Revolution using XR Solutions

Virtual Industrial Revolution using XR

The goal of this challenge is to develop an innovative AR/VR solution for the industrial metaverse. The XR solution should simulate real-world industrial environments and provide users with hands-on experiences, interactive learning, or practical skills development.

Key Ideas:

a) Industrial Simulation: Create a virtual environment that accurately represents a specific industrial setting (e.g., factory, construction site, oil rig) and includes realistic equipment, machinery, and hazards.

b) Object Interaction: Develop the visualization of collision points of two 3D intersecting objects. For example, when a machine engine is inserted into a machine that is too small, points in the back or on the side would collide. These collision points should be highlighted.

c) Collaboration: Enable remote participants to collaborate, communicate, and share experiences in real-time within the virtual environment.

d) User-Friendly Interface: Create an intuitive user interface that is easy to navigate and interact with, ensuring that trainees can quickly adapt to the AR/VR environment and focus on learning.

Bonus Ideas:

a) Gamification: Integrate game elements, challenges, and rewards to engage users, increase motivation, and make the experience more enjoyable.

b) Data Analytics: Incorporate data collection of meeting points and degree of overlap.

c) Hands-on experience: Create modular inverse kinematic capabilities for realistic handling of factory equipment, i.e., allow the definition of joints on robot and set movement constraints.

d) Realistic visualization of flexible parts: Create a modular system to define fix points and elastic sections of cables, whilst restricting the stretchability. Allow the definition of rigidity.
