Some companies spend countless hours building prototypes in real life and conducting tests on physical products. CAD software like SolidWorks have helped many engineers and designers by enabling them to work with 3D models. What if you could go even further with virtual reality?
In 2080, one third of the European population will be 65 or older. For smart factories through the path of the Industry 4.0, it means having a “good” workplace is not enough, and its design should anticipate the preservation of the operator’s wellbeing. Therefore, the working environment for modern manufacturing workplaces must allow for the best productivity and quality outputs, while offering a secure environment for the workers.
VR is everywhere with a broad variety of industrial application, and the potential to revolutionize many others. The potential of virtual reality technology is endless and drives digital transformation
VR is an innovation that’s been around since the 90’s and - even though companies are more and more preoccupied by digital trust - VR is now widely used in the professional area. It is transforming today, and gives everyone with an engineering background the possibility to shape tomorrow. Thanks to virtual reality, engineers and developers can predict and solve issues before they happen.

Industry 4.0 and digital revolution brought many innovations, new methodologies and tools to the manufacturing industry. Virtual Reality technologies enable businesses to design products and better their production process by simulating 3D prototypes in a virtual environment. Besides saving time and resources, this new approach also enables to optimize the manufacturing lines and improve the workplace ergonomics.
Interaction between the physical and the digital world is an important technology for industries. With a better human-machine interaction, industries work faster, make better-quality products and waste a lot less resources. Tracking human movements has many industrial use case. The 3D human body it creates, you can then use a VR software solution.
