The FutureWork360 project, which Hemminger Engineering undertook for the Fraunhofer Institute as part of the “Germany – Land of Ideas” initiative, is powered by NavVis technology.

From a blog post by Bulent Yusuf at NavVis.

Based in Esslingen, Germany, Hemminger Engineering offers multiple services in the field of geodata acquisition and geodata evaluation. In business for more than 50 years, the firm has customers in the automotive, energy and public sector industries, and much more.

“The challenges of the surveying industry today are to record data very quickly and accurately and to make it accessible to the customer,” explains Christoph Wintrup, Managing Director at Hemminger Engineering.

“Of course, NavVis technology helps us do exactly this; capture data for our customers with speed and precision and make it available shortly afterward.”

A recent project powered by NavVis is FutureWork360, which Hemminger Engineering undertook for the Fraunhofer Institute in Stuttgart as part of the “Germany – Land of Ideas” initiative.

FutureWork360 uses a digital twin to enhance the coordination of research projects in manufacturing, engineering and automation. Better communication between researchers is now possible – irrespective of time and place – while also making innovations known to a wider audience and advancing international networking and collaboration.

“The goal was to establish business and scientific communication between several partners, notably France’s plastic processing industry, and bring them together in a shared virtual environment,” says Christoph.

“With this project’s conclusion, the client can now show and demonstrate technologies without anyone having to go on-site physically.”

Especially now with the coronavirus crisis, research institutions and commercial companies are seeking new approaches to scientific and technical communication. Futurework360 has great potential to mitigate the impact.
