Working in Collaborative Factory of the Flight Simulators Branch of RISE (WrightBroS)

The research and innovation programme of WrightBroS project is aimed to develop a prototype of NewTechnology professional flight simulator to demonstrate how deployment of augmented reality (AR) has a potential to significantly broaden the market for these new products. The economical impact on market expansion will be achieved due to innovations at three layers:

  1. technological support to “learn as you go” paradigm,
  2. development of AR-based virtual maintenance and servicing system, and
  3. new AR-based architecture of the flight simulator (as opposed to current architectures based solely on virtual reality).

Research leading to these innovations will be performed by collaborative teams from Silesian University of Technology (PL) and two High Tech companies: LG Nexera (software development company from AT), and Virtual Reality Media (professional flight simulators manufacturer from SK). Such composition not only will mobilise the researchers with complementary skills but also it will provide to the WrightBroS project the equipment of exceptional in Europe Virtual Flight Laboratory at SUT, the resources for complex data management at NXR, and professional industrial environment for manufacturing flight simulators at VRM. Working toward attainment of ambitious scientific goals in this multidisciplinary project will rely on advanced image processing, pattern recognition, procedural knowledge acquisition and processing, smart diagnostics, augmented reality technology, and aerodynamics simulation models. Common goal to achieve the qualitatively new technology will be a basis for a rich programme of mutual staff training not limited only to secondments. Particular attention will be paid to wide and efficient networking, dissemination and communication. Due to these efforts, the WrightBroS project will strengthen career perspectives of participating scientists and will become the foundation for lasting collaborations in exploitation of results. Last but not least, the envisaged deployment by VRM of the NewTechnology products will increase competitiveness of European industry on the world market of professional flight simulators.
