College of Aeronautics and Engineering Announces New Partnership With Augmented Reality Company Scope AR

The College of Aeronautics and Engineering is excited to announce a partnership with enterprise augmented reality company Scope AR as part of a project with the Robotics and Autonomous Systems (AUTOBOT) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU).

Led by Drs. Stephanie G. Fussell and Benjamin Kwasa, REU students working under the “Development of AR and VR Aircraft Engines for Aviation and Engineering Programs” project will utilize the Scope AR authoring platform, WorkLink, to create 3D aircraft engine models in augmented reality (AR). WorkLink will enable REU students to create high-quality AR models that can be integrated in engineering and aviation courses at Kent State University, allow for the exploration of turbine engines otherwise inaccessible to students and the community in general, and gain simulation skills that are in-demand across many industries.

“One of the most common use cases for WorkLink in the Aviation and Aeronautics industries is the rapid upskilling of new skilled talent,” says David Nedohin, President and Co-Founder of Scope AR. “WorkLink can give students applied experience with aircraft development, manufacturing, and maintenance before they even start their careers and transition them with confidence to the shop floor or aircraft hangar.”

Albie Morrison, a computer engineering student from Cedarville University, is the REU student working with Scope AR in this effort under NSF Award # 2244042. Ali Karar, an aerospace engineering student at the CAE, is also working on this project with the Kent State SURE program.
