LZDV – The Berlin Center for Digital Transformation

LZDV project

Phase I: July 2016 – June 2018

Phase II: July 2018 – June 2020

The Berlin Center for Digital Transformation develops technologies and solutions that take into account the increasing digitization and networking of all areas of life. It conducts research on basic and cross-sectional technologies for the application areas:

  • Networked Industry & Production
  • Networked Mobility & City of the Future
  • Networked Healthcare
  • Networked Critical Infrastructures & Energy

The Vision and Imaging Technologies department is involved in the sub-project ProMo.

ProMo will create solutions for future smart production and maintenance environments. Scenarios will demonstrate these solutions for mobile context-based working, multimedia interaction and cooperation with production plant systems. These solutions achieve real-time interconnection of production plants and process with their virtual digital twins and models. Proper AR-visualization technology will realize the integration of assistance into your working environment. A special focus lies on both, providing context-based information on the go for your employee according to their current situation and the environment. Another focal point is the exploration of possibilities of multimedia and multi-modal interaction with production plant systems.

The department contributes to the following technology areas:

  • Real-time multi-view 3D scene analysis
  • 3D scene reconstruction
  • Touchless interaction in real and virtual environments

The Berlin Center for Digital Transformation is funded by the Governing Mayor of Berlin, Senate Chancellery – Research and Technology as well as from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
