ESI to Present its Smart Virtual Prototyping solutions at the Daimler EDM CAE Forum 2017 in Germany

14 July 2017
Paris, France
With a focus on Virtual Reality, Cloud, Big Data, and Autonomous Driving

Who? ESI Group is a leading innovator in Virtual Prototyping software and services for manufacturing industries. Specialist in material physics, ESI has developed a unique proficiency in helping industrial manufacturers replace physical prototypes by virtual prototypes, allowing them to virtually manufacture, assemble, test and pre-certify their future products. ESI’s virtual reality solution ESI IC.IDO offers engineers an interactive and immersive 3D experience of their products or projects before they even exist.

What? From July 19 to 20, 2017, ESI will take part in the EDM CAE Forum 2017 in Stuttgart, Germany. Organized by Daimler AG, the event gathers every 2 year experts from the Engineering Data Management (EDM) and the Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) communities and includes presentations from various clients, partners and suppliers. The conference and exhibition attracts around 6,000 visitors worldwide.


The Daimler EDM CAE Forum 2017 in Germany is a key meeting for the EDM and CAE communities worldwide

This year, ESI will showcase the latest trends in simulation and manufacturing and how to address the challenge of delivering more innovative and smarter products at a lower cost, faster, and with increased reliability. Starting with ESI IC.IDO, its interactive and collaborative Virtual Reality solution. André Rückert, Innovation Manager at ESI Group, will present a paper on how IC.IDO can safeguard worker health and safety during manufacturing by addressing human factors upfront during the planning processes. He will detail how IC.IDO’s capabilities can be combined with RAMSIS solution to benefit the user experience. His talk will channel ESI’s vision of the user as an integral part of the simulation as s/he actively experiences realistically simulated product behavior. ESI will conduct live demonstrations, in the exhibition hall of the Daimler EDM CAE Forum 2017, of the upcoming release of IC.IDO – featuring the RAMSIS integration – using real design data in a manufacturing environment.

On ESI’s booth (I10), visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the latest engineering technologies and innovations with a presentation on Big Data and ESI’s industrial data analysis platform enabling smart decisions. The ESI team will also demonstrate the benefits of Immersive Virtual Engineering for enterprises. To bring Virtual Engineering and Virtual Build tasks to a broad audience who might not have access to the facilities required for Virtual Reality powered engineering applications, ESI created a ground-breaking cloud project: VRify[RT1] . Companies that employ a VRify on-premise cloud will open the potential to stream Virtual Integration tasks and work product to a variety of devices and platforms throughout their enterprises for collaboration and immersive review.

Meanwhile, ESI will also showcase its autonomous driving solution ProSiVICTM: a virtual prototyping platform that allows users to carry out physically realistic 3D simulations of environments and sensors, like those used in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), including infrastructures, road users, vehicle dynamics and multi-technology perception sensors, in a completely virtual environment.

When? 19-20 July 2017
Where? Stuttgart, Germany
