The project aims to promote the use of Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies, to connect and to improve the skills needed to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the industry manufacturing, as well as to enhance cooperation between industrial realities and universities at European level. The results developed in the project include: an in-depth overview of the current state of the art of VR / AR / MR hardware and software solutions available on the market, reference use cases and their usability in European manufacturing SMEs; a survey of a sample of 250 companies on the potential and barriers in the implementation of these technologies; the creation of the largest European network on the issue, in which experts, service providers, SMEs and policy makers can come into contact, exchange knowledge and the possibility of developing joint projects; the collection and implementation of tools to support cooperation between industrial realities and universities for the development of adequate standards, knowledge and skills in the field of VR / AR / MR both at industrial and training level.
The STIIMA team is involved in all project activities and is the leader of the Evaluation WP, in which it coordinates the partnership and the network of external partners by systematizing the different skills for the evaluation and improvement of the overall quality of the project results, to make them a key reference in Europe.
The VAM*Rs project has a three-year duration (from January 2020 to December 2022) and is funded by the European Erasmus + program.
