Virtual Reality has always been restricted by the need for large investments of time and money. That restricts its appeal and adoption. With the influx of more capable and lower-cost HMDs that are continually evolving along with hardware, we can now unleash VR into the hands of a wider audience. Automotive designers, modellers, interior designers, engineers, manufacturers, and others can make better decisions and immerse themselves in an instant. It can be added as a verification to reduce the number of physical models while also making them more relevant and accurate.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how VR can help you in your job
  • Understand how to customise the toolset
  • Use VR to improve product quality
  • Use VR to reduce the need for multiphysical models
