Bilateral Contracts with Industry

Interactive Collaboration in Virtual Reality for Aerospace Scenarii:

  • duration: 2014-2017

  • PhD Thesis of Damien Clergeaud

  • partners: Airbus Group

  • The Airbus company regularly uses virtual reality for design, manufacturing and maintenance (see Figure 14 ). We work with them on collaborative interaction in order to enable an efficient collaboration between operators immersed in the virtual environment from remote locations and with heterogeneous equipment. More precisely, we have developped tools to point and manipulate objects, to remotely visualize the virtual environment, to be aware of remote manipulations and to describe tools and components trajectories.
