The Mixed Reality Lab at CSIRO’s Data61 will enable manufacturing and other industries to create ‘Digital Twins’, or virtual replicas of physical objects and systems. By comparing a digital twin of a manufactured object against the original design, we can quickly, accurately and cost-effectively identify defects and map entire manufacturing processes across a global supply chain. Defective components can be identified in real-time and corrected, while downstream processes can be adjusted to minimise the impact of delays. The lab is a unique combination of Data61’s research expertise across machine learning, computer vision, computational modelling, IoT, and CSIRO’s patented Stereo Depth Fusion technology for depth estimation.
Chris Rucinski is a software engineer in CSIRO Data61’s Computational Modelling Group based at Clayton, Victoria. Chris’ primary role is as a developer on the Workspace team with a strong interest in user experience design. Using Workspace as the development platform, Chris collaborates with a range of CSIRO teams to develop software products that model bushfires, hydraulic fracturing, ecology, mining and metallurgy.
