Doucal's 4.0

Digitalizzare le abilità manuali dell'artigiano calzaturiero per agevolare la formazione dei neoassunti. Ridurre gli errori, ottimizzare la produzione e tramandare la tradizione e le competenze del distretto calzaturiero fermano. Questi gli obiettivi del progetto Doucal's 4.0 promosso dal calzaturificio dei fratelli Giannini in condivisione con due dipartimenti dell'Università Politecnica delle Marche: Ingegneria dell'Informazione, attraverso la collaborazione di Emanuele Frontoni, e Management con il responsabile dell'intero progetto, Mario Pepe.  

Il progetto funziona così: gli artigiani addetti a taglio, giunteria e montaggio in forza al calzaturificio di Montegranaro inforcano un paio di occhiali dotati di microcamera che riprende le loro azioni in tempo reale. I filmati arrivano a un computer che esamina ogni singolo fotogramma, analizza la ripetitività delle operazioni e, quindi, la standardizzazione del processo produttivo. Le riprese vengono effettuate su postazioni di lavoro anonime e suddivise in base sia al modello di calzatura e sia alla specifica lavorazione.

Gli utilizzi di questa banca dati video sono molteplici. Il filmato della corretta lavorazione può essere visionato da chi si accinge per la prima volta a realizzare quella lavorazione per quel modello di scarpa, riducendo i tempi di formazione oppure per evidenziare gli errori più frequenti ed eliminarli, riducendo la percentuale dei difetti o, ancora, per ottimizzare la produzione.

Virtual Reality Summer School 2017 @ Torre dell’Orso

Professor Emanuele Frontoni was one of the speaker at Virtual Reality Summer School 2017, “Immersive Presence, Augmented Visualization and Advanced Interaction” last June 18-23, 2017 in Torre dell’Orso (Lecce), Italy. 

Nowadays the 3D world has become very realistic and research has been focused on 3D interaction with specific interests in natural user interfaces and tangible interfaces. Since interaction is closely related to perception, sensory interfaces are continuously evolving for a perception that is now multi-sensory. On the other hand, using smart phones and tablets the augmented perception of real world is becoming more and more common; however, several questions subsist on engineering of these new systems.

The main aim of the Virtual Reality Summer School was to propose a privileged moment for stimulating discussions and exchanging scientific experiences and technical results related to the Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies. The Summer School was open to Ph.D. and Master students, post-doctoral researchers and academic or industrial researchers. 

 

MICROGENIUS @ YOUR FUTURE FESTIVAL 2017

Anche il VRAI ha partecipato alla quarta edizione di MicroGenius all'interno di Your Future Festival.

L'obiettivo di MicroGenius è quello di insegnare mediante il gioco e l’esperienza sensoriale, affinché concetti importanti rimangano impressi nelle loro giovani menti, stimolando in loro la curiosità nell’ambiente che li circonda, la conoscenza e spronandoli a imparare e ad andare oltre quello che osservano quotidianamente.

Rama Pollini, Marina Paolanti e Roberto Pierdicca con un gioco multimediale con tablet e Realtà Aumentata hanno fatto scoprire ai bambini cosa può nascondersi dietro a dei semplici QR Code.
