OPTIS year in a review

2017 in 12 high points!

December 22nd, 2017 | OPTIS group


OPTIS unveils its first 360° Videos!

OPTIS now offers the possibility for customers and prospects to watch 360 ° videos to experience ultra-realistic virtual reality experiences!


This unique technology makes it possible to explore - in virtual reality- the latest results of our simulations while appreciating the realism of the materials rendering and an unlimited number of lighting conditions.... 



Perceived Quality: Building better products all the time 

Small details, great importance!


Have you ever dwelled on these little details that make the difference? This door groove in which you systematically miss to pinch your fingers, the spacing between the keys of your computer in which this little crumb gets stuck in, the junction between the claws of your ring and stone? The perceived quality of a product lies in these tiny but important details such as gap variations, that are almost imperceptible to us but decide everything...

Improving production time with Virtual Reality

Leveraging Virtual Reality and NVIDIA® PhysX to train Bentley Motors assembly colleagues enhance quality while shortening time to market


Mounting the seats in Bentley Motors automobile is a complex, model-specific process, and mistakes can easily damage expensive luxury materials. Bentley needed an efficient way to train assembly colleagues without compromising the excellence of their brand. Virtual Reality based on a highly realistic 3D model of the car combined with a real-time physics is an ideal way to accelerate training and shorten time to market...

LiDAR Design Challenge! 

Optical cameras and sensors for the safety of autonomous vehicles


One of the major challenges of the automotive industry is the autonomous vehicle. To carry out its mission of comfort and safety, the autonomous vehicle is equipped with cameras and optical sensors necessary to position itself in a dense traffic...

HPC to beat deadlines

The deployment of SPEOS HPC now makes timely, high-quality results, a reality



So many times, we’ve heard from very senior people in organizations that SPEOS analyses are used to make key decisions, but there were not enough simulations and they took too long.  There are multiple working practices that could help this issue but at some point, there was a need to process a simulation and get a result in a time frame that matches the business. The deployment of SPEOS HPC now makes timely, high-quality results, a reality...

Virtual Reality as a teaching tool

OPTIS puts itself at the service of teaching and learning


Virtual reality makes it possible to recreate any experience within a virtual environment. It constitutes a new tool for teaching and training. This new technology also enables students to develop their skills on complex operations - mechanical, for example - without being exposed to any danger...


Why adding sound simulation to visualization? 

Enhance your final product using sound simulation tools


Virtual Reality aims at creating an alternate reality, but without the right audio cues to match the visuals, the brain doesn't buy into the illusion. To make the visualization even more real, the immersive graphics need equally immersive 3D audio that replicates the natural listening experience...

Spatial data help create optical vision of unexplored world 

How did OPTIS transform the optical data collected by NASA & ESA in highly realistic images of the surface of this Saturn satellite?


Titan unveiled many of its secrets thanks to the Cassini-Huygens space mission, launched in 1997. The Cassini orbiter sent the probe, Huygens, to land on Titan more than one and a half billion kilometers from Earth. Cassini has since sent precise data of its environment, collected by NASA and ESA. In theory, it is possible to use this data to learn more about the appearance of Titan...

Physical simulation to help nuclear fusion

After a first success, the CEA & OPTIS extend their collaboration on the simulation of infrared images for fusion reactors


Since 2010,  OPTIS and CEA have been working together on the simulation of infrared images. The aim of their collaboration is to become capable of measuring the temperature of the walls of experimental fusion reactors such as ITER, using simulation...

Why is OPTIS a major player in the development of autonomous vehicles? 

OPTIS wants to enhance the artificial intelligence of autonomous vehicles with data obtained in virtual reality


"We are trying to understand how to properly train a network of neurons with virtual data," said Nicolas Dalmasso, innovation director at OPTIS. The goal is to allow customers to use data from a virtual environment instead of real-world ones. " ...

OPTIS to conquer America

The company adds two virtual reality centers to its counter


OPTIS' implementation in Silicon Valley is strategic in that it is a high-tech cluster that is teeming with innovators, builders and thousands of start-ups. To enable these players, particularly in the automotive and aerospace sectors, OPTIS is partnering with the ProspectSV Innovation Center and the National Institue for Aviation Research at the University of Wichita. The goal is to make two new virtual reality accessible to its customers to become familiar with Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality but also and above all develop and deploy the products of tomorrow...

Structured lighting and hyperspectral imaging as new approach to detect skin cancer

OPTIS takes part in the HSI-Plus project to help create a new skin measurement device


 “The challenge is great but so are the rewards! With the support of many partners such as ILM, SPECTARIS, and FOM we have at heart to make this project possible and advance research against skin cancer” ...
