IMT and elm.leblanc present IRON MEN project at BIG2021


The BIG 2021 business conference, the largest business gathering in Europe, was held on Thursday, October 7 at Accor Arena in Paris. Institut Mines-Télécom and elm.leblanc were there to present their IRON MEN project.

As part of a research partnership between elm.leblanc and Institut Mines-Télécom, they addressed the topic of designing a mixed reality solution to unlock the potential of production operators during the BIG 2021 convention through their talk on the digital transformation of industry at the convention’s French Fab space. IMT and elm.leblanc, both greatly involved in areas linked to the industry of the future, decided to pool their efforts and formalize their collaboration, in particular with the IRON MEN project.

In the era of Industry 4.0, this mixed reality solution enhances the human capabilities that are central to the processes by developing training, increasing the expertise and versatility of operators and creating renewed appreciation of industry professions.
