End of ESA Digital Twin project

The DigitalTwin project has made significant advances in the field of space communications by using pose detection with RGB cameras under the unique conditions of weightlessness as well as augmented reality (XR) visualization.

The proposed method, based on readily available resources, promises to minimize bandwidth requirements between ground control and the crew of the International Space Station (ISS). By integrating XR visualization, ground control gains a spatial understanding of activities in complex environments such as the ISS. This tool could not only be used to improve training, but also to facilitate remote support for astronauts during their missions.

The team would like to thank ESA for their financial support during the project. For further information and detailed results, the researchers are available for inquiries.
