Dr. Ander García, Lead of Connectivity and Cloud/Edge Computing Research Line, VicomTech
Today’s manufacturing lines require remote verification of manufacturing components in real-time, as they are conveyed across the factory. In this use case, featured in the DTC's Technology Showcase, a digital twin of a manufacturing cell enables manipulation and quality control inspection of manufacturing cells using Virtual Reality.
The goal of the project is to increase the flexibility of manufacturing lines to adapt them to today’s remote inspection scenarios. This prevents stopping production when an operator is remotely located.
Dr. Ander García will overview outcomes including:
A digital twin of the manufacturing cell that can be manipulated and inspected.
A realistic demonstrator that includes real-time remote operators.
Improvements required in the post-Covid manufacturing world, notably operator location flexibility.
Tracking of energy efficiency, performance metrics, and maintainability of the manufacturing line.
