The world of video games provided the impetus to virtual reality in the 80s and increasingly more sectors are now using this technology, such as the automotive industry. 3D has revolutionised the way to create and develop cars in recent decades. How are these new tools applied to car manufacturing?
This technology succeeds in reducing production time of the prototypes by 30%.
95,000 simulations are carried out on models with up to 3 million elements in the development stage.
Virtual reality is also used to analyse how workers move on the production line and improve their ergonomics.
