During a 3-day event, this week, Autodesk opened its Advanced Manufacturing Facility (AMF) in Birmingham, the UK’s second largest city. Here’s a video showing some information about this very cool facility.
It’s one of 6 technology centres that Autodesk is running at various locations around the world. The others are Pier 9 in San Francisco, the Boston BUILD Space, Autodesk Toronto’s new MaRS office, the VR Center in Munich and the Materials Lab in Kilsyth, Australia.
My team is proud to have been asked to provide technology to be showcased at the AMF: Dasher 360 is running there, providing access to sensor data via a “digital twin” of the workshop.
This is just an initial implementation, though: our plan is to get really serious about the visualisation of data being captured at the AMF, integrating it for display onto the virtual robots. The kind of thing we hinted at in this previous post. That will be really cool.
