The disclosure describes methods and apparatus for quickly prototyping of a solution developed using one or more sensing devices (e.g., sensors), functional blocks, algorithm libraries, and customized logic. The methods produce firmware executable by a processor (e.g., a microcontroller) on an embedded device such as a development board, expansion board, or the like. By performing these methods on the apparatus described, a user is able to create a function prototype without having deep knowledge of the particular sensing device or any particular programming language. Prototypes developed as described herein enable the user to rapidly test ideas and develop sensing device proofs-of-concept. The solutions produced by the methods and apparatus improve the functioning of the sensor being prototyped and the operation of the embedded device where the sensor is integrated.
In virtual prototyping and assembly validation, visual images of physical components of a product are captured through a camera inbuilt in an augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) wearable device, registered as 3D models in a virtual workbench. When a first voice command is received to initiate recording, continuous visual motion signals are received as trajectories corresponding to assembling a 3D model of a component. They are recorded as an installation view of the component. The 3D model of the component is dynamically validated while assembling the virtual workbench. The installation view of the component and an installation view of a next component is stored as an animation assembly file. The animation assembly file may be extracted from the AR/VR application and stored in a visual enterprise application as a visual enterprise format such as visual design stream.
