Duration: July 2016 – June 2018

The Berlin Center for Digital Transformation Research is being conducted on basic technologies as well as interdisciplinary technologies as well as solutions for four concrete application areas:

  • Healthcare
  • Mobility and City of the Future
  • Industry and production
  • Critical infrastructures

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

ProEnv 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 multimodal interaction with production plant systems.

The department and 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 a cooperation of the four Berlin Fraunhofer-Institutes FOKUS, HHI, IPK and IZM and is funded by the Berlin Government and the Fraunhofer Central Administration.
