211.02 Project Funding for Science Centers

In the expectation of fostering innovation, Barco is inviting Science Centers, Museums and Planetariums that are either in the process of creating a new exhibition area or undergoing a major renovation, to partner together to study possible avenues of collaboration by applying to the "Barco Innovation Partner Program". When an agreement is reached, members of the Barco BIP Program benefit from a matching-funds scheme to finance their projects. To be funded through the BIP program, all projects must exhibit an innovation factor of at least 30 percent, that is, 30 cents of investment on innovation and prototyping, for each dollar or euro invested on product line systems from Barco or Barco Consortium vendors. The "Barco Innovation Partner" (BIP) program aims to explore a new range of use of technologies that shift the focus from mere "showing" to memorable "immersing" and, even more desirable, that facilitate "group interaction" among visitors. The BIP program is open to all members of the Science Museum and Planetarium community worldwide, with a limit to a maximum of 20 organizations.

Barco's recently created "Edutainment and Entertainment" (E&E) product group, together with content development partners, is offering solutions to the Science Center Community by making creative use of projection technology. The "Magic-Y Installation" that Barco showcases at the ECSITE Annual Conference in London, is one of these innovative concepts. Children, families and school groups are confronted with two worlds depicted in large-size screens: a world of chaos on the left hand screen and a new world under construction on the right hand screen. A magic stick, called "Magic-Y", allows participants to grab hold of objects out of the chaos in random movement, and move them across to the right hand screen to build the structures they need. To be successful all participants have to collaborate and solve together the challenges of an exciting science or mathematics related riddle. By running another contents set, new environments and new challenges emerge. Barco's "Magic-Y Installation" can be used, for example, to "Build a Universe".

211.03 Interactive Training Applications for Boeing - Sikorsky

Viewpoint Corporation has entered into an agreement with the Boeing - Sikorsky First Team to license and develop interactive training applications to be used in maintaining the US Army's Comanche helicopter. In its most sophisticated Enterprise Application for the military to date, Viewpoint and interactive developer Advanced Engineering and Research Associates (AERA) together with Right Hemisphere, a leading provider of automated CAD repurposing solutions, have for the first time, made effective use of CAD applications on the Web. The Boeing - Sikorsky First Team, a multi-billion dollar Department of Defense contracting team has created a secure teaching network to train and educate civilian and armed forces personnel on basic and advanced maintenance procedures for the RAH-66 Comanche Program. Users can take an interactive tour of every part of the aircraft and be trained to disassemble and repair sophisticated components aboard a digital representation of the 3D helicopter. In addition to boosting the learning fidelity, it is anticipated that the Viewpoint-based application will result in substantial savings for the military in terms of training costs, increased operational readiness and easily updateable content.

211.04 $5m Supplier Costs Reduced By 30 Percent

Consol Energy Inc and Farnham & Pfile Construction, Inc. are using an IBM Product Lifecycle Management Solution to develop and maintain a computer-controlled coal-processing plant that ranks among the world's most efficient energy facilities. The solution is based on Dassault Systemes' 3D PLM CATIA and ENOVIA virtual product design and product data management applications. Using CATIA and ENOVIA, the two companies were able to consult each other and make design modifications in real time during a 16-month construction period. Said Tom Porterfield, vice president of operations at Farnham & Pfile. "For the new plant, we were able to provide our ceramic pipe suppliers with detailed drawings that ensured less liability and fewer potential errors. As a result, supplier costs were reduced by 30 percent and we passed on those savings. With $5m worth of piping in a plant, that adds up to substantial savings."

211.05 Vehicle Manufacturer Standardizes on SolidWorks

Farid Group has standardized on SolidWorks's 3D CAD software to accelerate design time for the waste removal and recycling vehicles it sells to cities and towns throughout Europe. Farid relies on SolidWorks software to streamline new product design, improve the existing line of vehicles, and speed up production in order to meet demand more quickly and obtain a sharper competitive edge than with 2D software. The Farid Group uses SolidWorks software to design sanitation equipment that is durable and precisely engineered to automate much of the waste removal process. The group manufactured more than 1,200 pieces of equipment in 2001.

"The trucks we design must be tough because they drive hundreds of miles each day and make thousands of stops," said Agostino Chiara, Farid's research and development manager. "There are thousands of complex moving parts in this equipment, and every one of them must meet exact engineering specifications so they can take the daily punishment our municipal customers give them while keeping their streets clean. SolidWorks' unique capabilities such as collision detection and physical dynamics help us make sure we get our product designs right the first time, so that no problems arise down the line. Moreover, it helps us accelerate design time so we can bring new products to market faster." The Farid Group receives software installation, training, and support from SolidWorks reseller Nuovamacut Automazione S.p.A.

211.06 Paper-Based Instruction Booklets Replaced

Valmont Industries and Scale Motorsport are creating new products with Autodesk Inventor software. Valmont created a 3D modeling prototype of a 63-meter, self-erecting tower and custom-integrated installation equipment. Scale Motorsport is setting new standards in the model car world with the development of a full-motion, animated, 3D instructional assembly CD. This replaces one-dimensional paper-based instruction booklets that are difficult to understand. Avatech Solutions, an Autodesk channel business partner, helped provide custom solutions to Valmont and Scale Motorsport. The Valmont tower, designed for assembly one piece at a time, supports wind power generation. It is considered self-erecting because it does not require large cranes for its installation, overcoming one of the most common construction difficulties. Valmont can significantly lower construction costs, resulting in a lower overall cost of energy to its customers for several reasons.

211.07 'Close to In-Store' Shopping Experience

Casio used Kaon's 3D product display technology for the launch of its new, ultra-thin Exilim camera. Commented Shawn Jackman, Internet Marketing Director. "At the size of a credit card, the Exilim is such a unique product. Our challenge was how to best convey this advantage on the Internet where a customer cannot hold the product in person. Kaon had the ability for us to insert a 3D model of a credit card into the presentation so our customers can immediately understand Exilim's size advantage. Our 3D model tells the product story, but it also gives the end-user full control to 'virtually try' the camera online. We believe we have achieved a 'close to in-store' shopping experience. In addition to the animated tour of the Exilim camera on our Web site, we will be using Kaon technology to support our channel partner Web sites, for online advertising and for online customer support."

211.08 SEOS Response to Challenge by Renault-led Consortium

SEOS has launched its HMD 120/40, a lightweight stereo SXGA Head Mounted Display (HMD) with a large field of view. Specifically designed for simulation and visualisation purposes, it weighs less than a kilogram when fitted with head tracking. HMD 120/40 incorporates a patented eyepiece developed by SEOS, which is not conventionally refractive. It features a large pupil, providing high tolerance to eyeball movement without losing regions of the field of view. This is a 120°H x 67°V with 40° full-stereo overlap (50% of each eye) to give a full wrap around two-channel SXGA (1280 x 1024) image. User comfort is ensured by the low mass of only 900g and the Center-of-Gravity location, which matches that of the head. The HMD 120/40 therefore exhibits no net lean forward or backwards. The HMD is the outcome of a challenge set by a European consortium lead by Renault, to build an HMD with double the field of view and half the weight of alternative products.

211.25 Worth Watching: Visual Survey in Oregon

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has selected CAiCE Visual Survey as its standard survey software solution. Using Visual Survey, the ODOT will now be able to efficiently produce more accurate surveys and capture raw survey data from the department's other topography systems so helping to minimize the possibility of data loss. The ODOT, which manages over 7,500 miles of highway and employs approximately 120 surveyors and support staff across five regions, needed a software solution that could read, translate, and accurately reduce data collected via Leica Total Stations and Digital Levels. Now ODOT survey engineers will be able to collect topography utilizing RTK (Real-Time-Kinematic) data through direct import of Leica's CAiCE (SDMS) format available on their Leica GPS 500 Series receivers. In addition, they can avoid modifying its existing field collection procedures, since survey engineers can continue to use the tools they're most comfortable with and re-use data for archived or ongoing projects. Said Ron Singh, Geometronics Manager / Chief of Surveys at the ODOT.

"The accurate translation of custom line styles and cells into MicroStation's native DGN format will also eliminate manual editing, and will provide our surveyors with a greater level of project productivity." The Visual Survey program's use of feature tables and cell files will aid in standardization of survey data and will help ODOT engineers save time by reducing the need for manual editing of MicroStation DGN files. Engineers will also be able to seamlessly transfer profiles, alignments, superelevation, survey points and chains, cross-sections, contours, boundaries, and intelligent DTM data to and from their existing design software solutions, thanks to the recent Visual Survey implementation of LandXML import and export capabilities. This capability will save engineers time, minimize data loss during data transfer, and help ensure data integrity.

211.29 Patent: Tracking Of a Viewer's Eyes

DDD Group plc has received notification of allowance of a US patent relating to the tracking of a viewer's eyes for use in conjunction with a variety of 3D displays. The patent extends DDD's coverage of technologies that support the presentation of content in 3D without the need for the viewer to wear special glasses. The Eye Tracker is able to identify the position of the viewer's head by locating and following the movement of the viewer's eyes. This positional information is fed to the 3D display system that responds to movements in the viewer's head to ensure that the viewer always remains in the optimal position for 3D viewing. Flexible enough to accommodate viewers wearing spectacles, the eye tracker follows the head movements without requiring the viewer to wear or attach any type of registration or tracking device that is common in alternative approaches, allowing completely unencumbered 3D viewing.
