CPS Controller

Clement used Android technology and CATIA V6 to develop an application with which it is possible to control simultaneously via Bluetooth a real robot and a virtual robot.
Moreover, the application allows real-time interaction between the robot and its avatar.
With this innovative project, students are given the opportunity to have a lifelike experience. They will be able to learn an emerging technology through the ones they are already familiar with (smart phones, LEGO).
