The NavVis Reality Capture technology are a cornerstone for the industrial metaverse

An industrial metaverse offers enormous added value for the manufacturing and automotive industry, especially in planning, simulation, and process monitoring. Automobile manufacturers can create virtual production lines, digitally simulate entire manufacturing processes, test, and plan assembly processes, and optimize work procedures. 

Digital twins of factories, a digital representation of the ever-changing reality, build the foundation for the industrial metaverse. For companies to get the maximum benefit from their digital twins, it is crucial to collect comprehensive, detailed data from the production buildings and keep it up to date. Simulations, plans, and decisions based on incomplete or outdated information can lead to enormous delays and additional costs due to rework.

To create digital twins of entire production facilities, more and more companies are now relying on reality capture technology to capture buildings and systems – be it for the first time or for a repeated time. 

Mobile mapping systems such as NavVis VLX are used to quickly and precisely 3D laser scan and cost-effectively generate point cloud data and panoramic images of the environment. In contrast to conventional, static surveying or laser scanning methods, a factory environment can be recorded up to 10 times faster with NavVis VLX, enabling the comprehensive and repetitive capturing of real-world conditions efficiently.

Immediately after the scan, the recorded data is available for processing via the cloud-based tool NavVis IVION Processing and is then made available to a broad group of stakeholders via the NavVis IVION platform in the form of immersive models. There, the 3D data can be enriched with additional assets or IoT information and can be called up at any time and from any location via a standard web browser. Without the need for training, the data can be shared and discussed with project participants and partners intuitively and build the foundation for informed decision-making.
