Last April, the Automotive Cluster of Castilla y León, FaCyL, presented (through a telematic session) the results of Phase I of the collaborative project XRWorMs (eXtendedRealityWorkers - Machines) promoted in recent months by ARSOFT and Industrias Maxi, two of the cluster's partner companies.
The main objective of this first phase of the XRWorMs project has been the research, development and prototyping, at laboratory level, of a software tool that allows operators to control more easily an industrial plant, production line or individual machines, through a state identification system, using Mixed Reality technology to interconnect machines with people.
ARSOFT, as an expert company in XR technologies applied to the industrial sector, has been in charge of developing an Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality system that connects with IoT platforms to show operators in a simple way the health status of the machines they work with.
This system allows engineers to define critical states of each of the machines based on different IoT sensorized parameters and show these states in a virtual representation or Digital Twin of the different machines.
With this research we help industrial companies to improve both predictive and corrective maintenance of their machines. In addition, machine manufacturers will be able to have advanced control platforms to offer to their customers.
The XRWoRMs Phase I project has been co-funded by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism through the line of support grants for Innovative Business Groups, in its 2022 call, within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.
CONSORTIUM OF COMPANIES:
Arsoft is a company specialized in the development of Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR&VR) systems for the industrial sector, transforming traditional production processes into digital production processes. It has developed its own authoring platform for the digitalization of industrial processes with XR technologies called EyeFlow.
INDUSTRIAS MAXI is an engineering company with its own manufacturing of integral services for the industrial sector, offering integral development (study, design, manufacturing, assembly and start-up of industrial solutions). The R&D Department is of vital importance in helping to generate new products that make it possible to provide complex solutions, anticipating the detection of market needs.
FACYL AUTOMOTIVE CLUSTER
FACYL, Automotive Cluster of Castilla y León, established in 2001, brings together the main actors of the automotive sector, along the entire value chain of the sector in Castilla y León. FACYL currently has 89 members that employ 28,000 direct workers and generate a turnover of 8,230 million euros.
