Simulations & Training


In many areas of life, computer-aided simulations have become indispensable: Products are tested without building a prototype, operation of devices is trained, without a trainer or without the device. Even group training with people in different places only connected by the network are possible. Wherever the exact position of people or objects has to be measured reliably and accurately in real time, ART's devices are in use.

Case Studies

ArianeGroup, France

Ariane 6 is propelled into the virtual world

...supported by ART Motion Capture.
Subject to commercial constraints, ArianeGroup now massively uses virtual reality to shorten the design times for its launchers.

Mimbus, France

AR for woodworking workers

WOOD-ED TABLE is a project initiated by AFPA, the French association for adult apprenticeship. AFPA asked MIMBUS to create a virtual training solution to simulate the stationary cutting and forming machines.

Grohe, Singapore

The following ART products were used for the above solutions

Motion Capture

Digitizing of Movements

Motion Capture ("mocap") is the technique of digitizing the movement of people, animals or objects. In the case of the ART Motion Capture system, markers are attached to the subject’s limbs (no need for lycra body suits!) and the data is…

TRACKPACK/E

Best solution for medium-sized tracking volumes

TRACKPACK/E camera is our best solution for medium-sized tracking volumes. With a respectable frustum volume of 60m³ it is not only a mere replacement for our former TRACKPACK model. Delivering significantly more…

ART-Human

Motion capture assistance tool

ART-Human is a tool to assist motion-capture projects. The software uses the information of our highly accurate 6 degree-of-freedom (6DOF) optical targets to track a human subject. We use 17 ergonomically designed targets which can be worn directly on…

Targets

Many geometries, also customized

Targets consists of several markers (minimum 4), and will give the 6DOF (degrees of freedom). Here also, we distinguish between passive and active types. In addition to our standard targets we offer several construction sets for your own targets and…

Flystick 3

Our lightweight wireless interaction device

The Flystick3 is our lightweight wireless interaction device for VR applications, that is available with a passive (marker based) target. The wireless data transmission to the controller is guaranteed by a USB radio transreceiver in the ISM…

ARTTRACK5/C three camera heads

ARTTRACK5/C

The world's only optical tracking solution inside multi-sided projections

ART’s unique cave cameras are especially designed for multi-sided projections (e.g. CAVE or I-Space). The camera lenses look through small holes drilled into the corners of the projection screens…

SMARTTRACK3

plug & play tracking solution for small volumes

Two tracking cameras and the controller are fully integrated in one housing. When delivered, SMARTTRACK3 is pre-calibrated and may be used immediately. This and its compact size make SMARTTRACK3 the ideal mobile, out-of-the-box…
