Innovative solutions to interact with your digital data
The automotive industry has long been using the digital environment to design cars.
The technology evolution in the recent years has put new tools to help reduce the global time to market: 3D printing, crash test simulation engine, CAE, CFD… Haptics
Your engineers spend a lot of time designing and refining your digital product. Still, some questions remain unsolved on the digital product. Our solutions help them to answer those questions through physical interaction:
- Motion Capture
Thanks to Motion Capture, in combination with our software solutions, your engineer can simulate the gesture of an operator in order to perform maintenance operations, check accessibility to the desired elements for their replacement, or test the considered tools, directly within the CAD software environment. Our solutions allow to lean on those tools to realize the operations from a feasibility point of view, but also from an ergonomic point of view. Indeed, our solutions do not have any impact on the CAD software and can therefore be used in conjunction with the tools directly available within the CAD software.
The add-on of a haptic device to the simulation will allow you to precisely feel the elements manipulated and feel the contacts with the digital mockup. Thanks to the haptic feedback, you are capable of understanding the difficulty of the operation and can consider the possible improvements to make it easier, or simply make it possible if the simulation was to point out the infeasibility of the process. The use of haptics allows you to strengthen the virtual world with physics and accelerate the whole prototyping phase, without the necessity of the physical prototype for each step.
In advance of the manufacturing phases, our tools help you to validate, several months ahead, the feasibility of the operations your team will have to realize.
