Why is the industrial metaverse becoming popular as the first application area? What are the main technology enablers that we plan to use in the near future?

The seminar is organized as part of the Virtual Training Certification and Necoverse projects coordinated by Turku University of Applied Sciences and Dimecc. These projects are a part of Meyer Turku’s NEcOLEAP locomotive ecosystem, which aims to develop a climate-neutral cruise ship concept by 2025. In Necoverse, new collaboration tools are being developed for the Meyer shipyard, which improve energy efficiency in training, commissioning, planning, operation, and maintenance.

Projects

Necoverse

The Necoverse project aims at the development and utilization of new training, planning and operating environments in shipbuilding. The main part of the project is a metaverse, which creates shared interactive three-dimensional experiences with the help of virtual reality, augmented reality and videos. The virtual shipyard environment operating in the industrial metaverse offers new opportunities for many people, from interior designers to trainers of shipyard workers.

The companies dSign Vertti Kivi & Co, Finpeda, Hollinki, Kiwa Inspecta, Lingsoft and Meyer Turku, as well as the research institutes Aalto University, Turku University of Applied Sciences and VTT, are participating in this two-year 5.5 million euro Necoverse project, coordinated by Turku University of Applied Sciences and industry’s co-creation company DIMECC. The project is financed by Business Finland, research organizations and partner companies.

VTC

The goal of VTC project is to create a harmonized certification platform for training competencies virtually. When competence and skills can be verified virtually and remotely, certified competence cards can be linked to individuals using identity verification. The competence can therefore be verified regardless of the location.

The companies Kiwa, ADE, Desigence, OEP, and TTS, as well as the research institutes Turku University of Applied Sciences and University of Turku, are participating in this two-year 3.0 million euro VTC project, coordinated by Turku University of Applied Sciences. The project is financed by Business Finland, research organizations and partner companies.
