Authoring of automatic data preparation and scene enrichment for maritime virtual reality applications
When realizing virtual reality scenarios for the maritime sector a key challenge is dealing with the huge amount of data. Adding interactive behaviour for providing a rich interactive experience manually requires a lot of time and effort. Additionally, even though shipyards today often use PDM or PLM systems to manage and aggregate the data, the export to a visualisation format is not without problems and often needs some post procession to take place. We present a framework, that combines the capabilities of processing large amounts of data for preparing virtual reality scenarios and enriching it with dynamic aspects like interactive door opening capabilities. An authoring interface allows orchestrating the data preparation chain by non-expert users to realise individual scenarios easily.
