The project envisions to create an environment for holistic and immersive collaboration i.e. connecting different visualisation options to a central, company-wide digital knowledge pool. The project is bringing together three gaming and one technology companies along with three automotive OEMs and HSSMI.

The objective of the project is to shorten the time to ramp up and decrease the cost for maintenance by using innovative virtual reality and augment reality technologies. The underlying aim is to increase the lifecycle use of the CAD data and extract maximum value for the automotive OEMs.

The project will focus on developing 3D pdf’s, AR tablets, AR safety glasses and machine voice communication technologies to improve maintenance, training and manufacturing processes. The ultimate aim of the project is to connect the developed technologies to a single platform to improve manufacturing productivity and operational profitability.
