The Whole Brain Catalog is a 3D virtual environment to facilitate solutions for currently intractable challenges in brain research. It is meant to enable the synthesis of data measured from brains at different scales into more coherent models of brain structure and function. The Whole Brain Catalog is a client-server platform that provides rich 3D views for researchers to zoom in, out, and around structures deep in a multi-scale spatial framework of the mouse brain. A 3D graphics engine used in graphics-intensive computer gaming generates high-resolution visualizations that bring data to life through biological simulations and animations.
openTCS is a platform-independent transportation control system (TCS) intended to control automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), but which can be used to steer virtually any (track-guided) vehicle. It consists of an abstract kernel which implements replaceable algorithms and strategies (computation of routes, dispatching of orders to vehicles, scheduling of resources, etc.), pluggable vehicle drivers which implement communication protocols, and a graphical frontend for creating and visualizing logical models of areas the vehicles are moving in.
