Virtual Welding NEXT - Integration of virtual and augmented simulation and real welding

Project: Research project

Project Details


Through the research and development of innovative and efficient methods, a novel training simulator shall be developed for welding, which enables a smooth transition between the virtual training and the real environment, to improve the flexibility and usability of welding as core technology in production in Industry 4.0. The system prototype, including housing, burner, the helmet and the table) including the virtual welding processing unit is to be remodelled as realistically as possible. The concept includes the design and development of an intuitive graphical user interface to enable users the operation of the welding machine in a fast and economic manner, at the same time enriching the know-how of the user and the understanding of safety and working concepts. The project Virtual Welding NEXT shall lower emotional barriers to use virtual and augmented reality technology and aims at an improved excitement in welding, enabling the actual usage of gained theoretical know-how in a production environment. Novel technologies in power supply technology, data communication and visualization improve the user experience and user efficiency, assisted by simulations and optimization procedures, likewise helping the training personnel to plan and guide learning and teaching experiences and interactive operation.
