Section: Application Domains
Industrial products and process
The applications to the industrial domain are very promising. For instance, the PSA Automotive Design Network, which is a new design center, groups all the tools used for automotive design, from classical CAD systems to Virtual Reality applications. Renault has also conducted research to couple the virtual assembling methods into CAD systems. The coupling of virtual reality and simulation algorithms is a key point. Other major issues in which industrials are strongly involved are (i) populating and simulating complex human activities in large-scaled industrial plants (Digital Plant 1 & 2 Projects of the competitiveness cluster System@tic), (ii) focussing on collaborative tasks between multiple users in digital mockups and for scientific visualization (ANR Part@ge and ANR Collaviz) and finally (iii) tackling the challenging problem of training in Virtual Reality by providing interactive scenario languages with realists actions and reactions within the environment (GVT Project and Grant).
