In our research projects, we develop new methods and technologies for virtual engineering and Human Factors Engineering. These projects are carried out on behalf of funding authorities which include the European Union, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), or the State of Baden-Württemberg. This provides a springboard for our work on implementation projects contracted directly by industrial clients.

The following list gives an overview of our current research investigations:

Digital product creation
In order to make use of end-to-end process and tool chains, it is essential to bridge the gap between product development and design on the one hand, and production planning on the other.

Immersive engineering
When developing systems and applications for virtual engineering, we orientate ourselves towards the guiding principle of frontloading.

Immersive construction planning
Virtual reality offers a great deal of potential benefits for construction planning: Experiencing the building as early as the conception phase, and actually walking through it, considerably eases communication between architects, planners and the property owners.

Human-machine interaction in vehicles
The interaction between human and machine in vehicles is being altered by built-in driver assistance, information, communication and entertainment systems.

Innovations for immersive systems
The basic technology for immersive systems is developing very rapidly. The entertainment electronics industry leads the way in preparing this technology for the mass market.

Integrated lighting and display systems
The use of LED and OLED technology will make it possible to fuse the function of lights and display screens.
