Siemens Video Limbic Life


Limbic Life : From brain research to the workplace - What brain research and body intelligence have to do with CAD.

  • Dr. Patrik Künzler | Limbic Life

This is the dawn of a new era, where neuroscience is starting to have a great impact on our lives.

We will be discussing how we developed Limbic Chair, showing its neuroscience background, why having fun is more efficient at work, and the practical and medical impact Limbic Chair can have at the workplace.
And of course also how to use your body for computer inputs for better efficiency and health.

Neuroscience research shows that we should use our legs to move and rotate objects in CAD and to move ourselves in VR. What sounds like common sense – our hands are designed to do complex, precise work and are connected to some very advanced brain regions – has finally been put into practice.

We are presenting Limbic Chair, a “chair”-like solution for increasing your efficiency, health and wellbeing. We developed it at MIT based on several years of applied neuroscience research.

Limbic Chair allows you to sit balanced and straight effortlessly. Micromovements support your spine and keep it healthy, while larger, intentional thigh movements are being tracked by 5 sensors and transmitted to your computer to let you do any function you like. Any.

Now you can zoom, scroll, rotate in CAD and in 2D using your body. This is good, gentle exercise (like walking slowly, you can do it all day without breaking a sweat) and it takes stress off your hands.

The clever thing is that very simple, ancient brain regions can do the ‘stupid’ things on your computer now, zooming, scrolling, while your ‘smart’, modern brain can focus on what’s important.

Another great application is VR: Fly using the chair while staying at your desk. It’s hands-free, so you can actually use your hands for the work you are supposed to do in VR. No more falling, no more tripping, no more artificial boundaries, no more of all that.


TEST BED - Industrial 5G

  • Dušan Šutora | Siemens RC Slovakia
    Siemens Technical Account Manager for Tier 1 Automotive and Linebuilders in Central and Eastern Europe

Presentation of a practical 5G solution for an industrial production network in a university setting. The solution involves creating a real digital twin capable of exchanging information via the 5G network between the digital and physical worlds. A truly innovative aspect is the implementation of 5G Profinet realtime communication, which provides new flexibility and mobility options for technologies. For human-machine interfaces, a next-generation HMI panel solution with 5G support is also prepared. Analytics and diagnostics within the 5G network offer new possibilities for transmitting real-time information precisely where it’s needed. Augmented reality ensures instant access to information wherever it’s required. Similarly, Industrial Edge devices bridge the gap between IT and operational technology (OT), revolutionizing how control systems will look in the future.

Solid Edge and Teamcenter to streamline design and communication, from quoting to manufacturing

  • Zdenko Caban | SOVA
    PLM Application Engineer
  • Christophe Payon I SKARTEK s.r.o.

Although the SKARTEK had originally implemented SolidWorks CAD and data management software, it needed a software platform that could overcome performance issues and support its end-to-end solutions offering. Integrating the Solid Edge platform with Teamcenter software enables users to improve the quality of their product development process by streamlining their CAD data management and creating a single environment for mechanical and electrical design, simulation, manufacturing and more. The result is a collaborative CAD environment that improves design efficiency and reduces project time by 30 percent.

Dexion Storage Solutions, part of Gonvarri Material Handling Group, designs, manufactures and installs racking and industrial shelving, produced in Romania. The company stands apart with its unique mix of quality products, outstanding design capabilities and customer service.

Dexion needed a CAD solution for their Support Center Department, consisting of 26 Design Engineers. After considering more solutions, Dexion chose Solid Egde for two reasons: its outstanding capabilities for Sheet Metal and Large Assemblies Design and the trust they had in their partner, CAD Subscription.
The session will highlight the implementation steps and future plans.


What do insects have to do with digitalization?

  • Rok Koren I SIEMENS Slovenia
    Senior digitalization consultant, Adriatic Region

Nasekomo is an agro-biotech startup that is revolutionizing the human food chain by producing animal feed from organic waste using insects, using a bioconversion method. They reduce the amount of food waste, greenhouse gas emissions and develop a “data-driven franchise business model« Global network of 200 franchises for breeding Black Soldier Fly (BSF) larvae for the production of proteins, oils and organic fertilizer.
Siemens provides Nasekomo complete support on enabling their innovative ideas in terms of digitalization strategy and implementation of digitalization projects now and on long term.
Siemens experts provided creative digitization consulting services to develop a digital platform of the future capable of supporting 200 global manufacturing sites. A thorough analysis of the existing production was carried out. Based on the current and, above all, future requirements, a solution was defined, evaluated and proposed as well as a timetable for implementation. The innovative and creative approach of consulting and the results allow the customer to continue the development of both the business idea and the development of revolutionary bio-genetic-production ideas, which are also patented. The results of the consultancy are innovative on a global scale, as they include integrated solutions for the development of digitalization – preparation of the development and management platform. These include integrated engineering platforms, data layers, analytics – AI in the cloud, digital twin processes and, in the long run, even living beings. Without digitalization in the broadest sense, the customer would not be able to achieve ambitious goals.
The basic requirement of the consulting project was the preparation of a strategy for a comprehensive digital solution to empower the data-supported franchise business model. The model is based on capturing all process variables at 200 global locations, processing them centrally with AI models, generating and implementing improved process parameters in production processes. The strategy, as a result, is based on several levels and areas, both technical, futures and cooperative.
The technical implementation is based on the basics and upgrades of industrial digitization (IT/OT network and cybersecurity, connectivity of all production processes and devices, data level, cloud services, unified engineering environment for all subcontractors, digital twin level with simulation and their back connection, operational level of remote management and maintenance, standardization of all components (HW, SW, data, mechanics. . . ), production monitoring, energy management together with sustainability (e. g. CO2 footprint), traceability, monitoring of growth and development of living organisms (for breeding and further development), tracking of populations and generations of insects based on genetics, . . . ).
The result is a plan to develop comprehensive digital solutions for Nasekomo to support the expansion of plants for the production of protein, oil and biofertilizer. With our joint digital solutions, Nasekomo will be the first to offer a franchise model for protein production on the market, while at the same time enabling a sustainable aspect and a good return on investment.
