IMMERSIVE VIRTUALASSEMBLY & VERIFICATION SYSTEM
Immersive virtual assembly and verification system includes the projection display system, the graphic clustering system, control and signal switching system, augmented reality (AR) system, the human body tracking system, immersive and interactive applications, and supporting system, etc. Digital virtual models are outputted to the display system for real-time display through clustering technology; Multi-collaborative virtual interactive human-machine system is accomplished, thanks to multi-people virtual tracking technology.
High-end graphics service cluster real-time visualization technology is the core of the system, with the help of projection screen and interactive tracking equipment, high quality digital prototype, lifelike 3D data information can be displayed, and gives the best simulation experience to the user. In a natural way of prototype and virtual environment for interaction design results, produce "immersed" feeling in a real environment and validation experience for the user, and achieve the goal of maintainability verification, helps the user to promote the digital prototype evaluation, project coordination, virtual maintenance methods and skills.
System provides an advanced visualization solutions for 3D applications, system renders out multiple angle of view according to the model and the displacement data of human body provided by the actual assembly validation interactive system, in order to coordinate the view of operator’s HMD and the monitor’s screen.
System makes it possible to show virtual prototype data from the desktop (3D CAD and simulation) into the multi-channel stereo environment. It can be used in project design, planning or verification, etc., it supports common CAD application such as CATIA, NX, and CAE application such as FLUENT, ANSYS, MSC, etc. System supports 3D applications, no need for programming and data transfer, and it is not subject to any resolution, channel number, size, shape and performance restrictions. User can operate directly on the desktop, and watch the real time results on the big screen or in the CAVE system. System is installed in the computer cluster including control node and render node, each render node corresponding to a CAVE screen or a HMD. The software obtains the original validation data, and distributes it to the render nodes; each node is responsible for rendering the distributed pictures. Immersive application system can make desktop application extends to the virtual reality environment, no need for data grouping and transformation, and directly display the 3D data in a VR system.
