Engineering from the couch

The innovative "Couch Collaboration" concept made its debut at this year's AEE and convinced visitors with the smart use of VR/AR technologies for time and resource-saving automotive engineering projects.

The soft side of Industry 4.0

In the era of virtual realities and reproductions of entire factory landscapes, work has become independent of a fixed location and, at the same time, independent of fixed working hours and time zones.

The concept not only rides the "New York wave" but takes right to the top of the agenda "Networked tasks in automotive engineering projects" – from the couch.

A better work-life balance with no loss of efficiency

Sustainable, efficient, from the couch. This summarizes the concept idea and its claim impressively in a short trilogy.

Engineering from the sofa

 

What lies behind is a groundbreaking concept for production engineering which combines VR and AR collaborations and can be implemented from the planning stage right up to maintenance operations. Using photorealistic 3D scans, the work environment is integrated into reality. The coupling of real control engineering with digital twinning with the cell can be carried out in real time. Easy on the nerves and easy on the pocket: on-site meetings can be reduced, for example.

 

Community instead of individuals

The advantages of collaborative work are obvious: by bringing together particular staff or the whole team, individual strengths can be harnessed and weaknesses counterbalanced, at the same time. Everyone can bring something to the table.

With VR/AR applications, tasks can be carried out simultaneously or staggered, as a community. The new world of work will be virtual: EDAG PS has the solutions. Unfortunately, we can't take the place of the coffee machine as yet.

See for yourself.

Would you like to enter the VR/AR collaboration world and discuss concrete application possibilities with our experts? Our colleague Dennis Narz will be happy to answer your questions and present the concept to you personally - you can choose the location or would you prefer it to be virtual and independent of location?

Our Realtime-3D-Development-Platform is based on UNITY, which enables our visions to become reality.
