We will present the latest results of our research together with our colleagues at the main stand of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in hall 16. Our spin-off "fleXstructures" and our partner "Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre" from Sweden will also be present.
- Digital assembly planning from the design of flexible components to the assembly by humans
Integrating humans and flexible components such as cables and hoses in digital assembly planning reduces physical prototypes and ensures validated results in an early phase of the product development process. A biomechanical model with an autonomous and ergonomic posture calculation, a collision-free assembly path and the physically correct consideration of flexible components guarantees this.
- Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Vehicle Engineering
In the automotive field, the availability of data has been increasing strongly for years; this applies not only to quantities measured directly on vehicle, but also to environmental data. At the same time, technologies for data acquisition, data management and computational data processing are also continuously improved and further developed. We show how methods of data analysis, artificial intelligence and machine learning can systematically support and improve the vehicle development process.
- Digital planning for assembly processes: VR interfaces for the IPS software
The digital human model IPS-IMMA is utilized in various industry sectors to design workstations with due regard to ergonomic requirements. It allows for analyses of accessibility, visibility and feasibility in the assembly of digital prototypes while accounting for the variance of prospective workers. Simulated work processes can be experienced in virtual reality, which allows for the testing and evaluation of operations with new prototypes or work stations during early planning phases
