The research project ARVIDA has been funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and started on September 1st, 2013 and was successfully completed on October 31, 2016.
The consortium consisted of 21 partners, including important industrial companies, innovative technology providers and leading research institutions. The goal of the project was to provide interoperability between the components that drive virtual technology solutions, with a service-oriented reference architecture.
This was evaluated in challenging industrial scenarios, with the main aim to advance the key technologies of motion tracking and environment perception. As a major partner, ART’s goals included the integration of its tracking solutions into a wider virtual technology ecosystem as well as the development of innovative markerless tracking technologies that will in the future replace the current marker-based approaches.
