Solution

Desktop application based on real-time 3D visualization technology that enables the digital simulation of a product, such as a car or an aircraft.

It features an advanced product presentation module that can simulate various design alternatives, based on an exhaustive set of product features. It can also simulate the actual human experience with the product by checking ergonomic characteristics of the design through motion tests and human proportion visualization within the digital prototype.

Used by automotive leaders, the software is a high-end tool that optimizes their value chain, from the design phase all the way through to the market.

It offers designers and engineers an exhaustive product experience, facilitating the decision-making process and reducing prototyping costs.

It also enables the production of compelling marketing and sales assets, helping companies reach diverse markets fast and increase sales volumes across channels and territories.

Collaboration

Our client is a producer of innovative software solutions for professional 3D visualization in real-time. Their unique suite of applications enables global manufacturers to leverage a comprehensive digital product experience throughout the complete product lifecycle, from conception and development to marketing and sales.

As a nearshore software development partner, we implemented several modules and plugins for the application, including:

  • a module for conferencing that enables the real-time visualization of a product worldwide and the reproduction of tasks from a machine to all connected systems;
  • a module for the taxonomy of vehicle parts, so that these can be automatically accessed from the database when simulating a car configuration;
  • a module that scans the end user’s system to check compatibility with future upgrades of the application;
  • the most recent direction in our collaboration was the development of a plugin which integrates the core product workflow with Teamcenter.

The integration with Teamcenter transformed the solution into an enterprise-ready, high-end visualization product, which overcomes the barriers between engineering and virtual reality.

Client Benefits

Electric Bicycle Software Suite

All-in-one eBike cycle computer with integrated navigation, fitness functions and phone connectivity via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It consists of an embedded application which displays live information from the sensors, an online platform used for data persistence and statistics and native mobile applications for routing and push notifications.

PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) System

This is a software tool that documents the product management process for car manufacturing over the complete product lifecycle. For each model series, the documentation is created at a central system and then distributed to the manufacturing plants.

Complete Platform for Car Connectivity, Control and Authorization

This is a software platform built for a premium OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer), an important player in the Automotive industry. The software enables car connectivity, control and authorisation services and connects in real time millions of vehicles with external content providers.
