Event-based 3D-monitoring of material flow systems in real-time
The following article presents a framework to develop event-based monitoring systems that collect data from an automated transportation system and provide a Human Machine Interface (HMI) with 3D-support. These systems allow to correlate data with the places where it has been collected. Together with 3D models of the technical components, the monitoring systems visualize the system state and the material flow in real-time. Further, we report on a practical monitoring system implementation, on its evaluation and on its development and installation process demonstrating feasibility, benefits and costs of 3D-monitoring.
