1st Status Meeting ARVIDA

At the halfway point of the project, ARVIDA held its 1st status meeting in Isenbüttel near Wolfsburg from 22 to 23 April 2015

The BMBF-funded ARVIDA joint project, which includes 22 partners from industry, SME and science, has the objective of researching an interoperable system environment for virtual technology (VT) applications. In order to do this, ARVIDA develops a service-oriented reference architecture as a new basis for modular VT systems. These VT systems can be flexibly composed from services, thereby overcoming the current disadvantages of a monolithic system environment that predominantly includes proprietary platforms. In this way, ARVIDA and the project partners aim at simplifying and accelerating the product creation process in the medium term.

The 1st status meeting included both overview and expert lectures as well as an exhibition of the results that have so far been achieved. Apart from the lectures on the architecture and employed technologies, lectures from the application areas were another focal point.
