Seminar: SupRTwin - Sensing, Understanding, and Provisioning of Real-Time Digital Twins

Seminar Overview

A digital twin is a digital representation of a tangible or intangible asset from the real world in the digital world. In particular, they play a central role in the Industrie 4.0 as a means for digitalization.

Last year's iteration of the seminar focused on digital twins for automated production resources like robots. This semester, the seminar will focus on digital twins for human workers. 

In this practical seminar you will learn about relevant concepts of Industrie 4.0 and implement a certain aspect of a real-time digital twin of a human worker in a production environment. In small teams consisting of 2 - 4 students, you will be able to work with different (ambient and body-worn) sensoric systems and (no/low-code) AI frameworks for sensing and understanding the human workers actions and intentions. We will provide a list of possible ideas, but you can also propose your own ideas. 

This seminar will partially take place in the Power4Production Center at ZeMA (Eschberger Weg 46, 66121 Saarbrücken) in DFKI's Human-Robot-Collaboration Lab.


To participate you should have

  • basic knowledge in AI (e.g. in the field of computer vision)
  • good programming skills in Python or C++
  •  some experience in ML frameworks like TensorFlow
  • beneficial: experience in no/low-code AI frameworks like Google MediaPipe or Unity 3D
