Photorealistic virtual reality (VR) is set to bring a real revolution across a wide spectrum of industries. VR will save a lot of time and money, and furnish a safe, absorbing and realistic experience for workers and users, some not even possible in the real world. How can you and your company benefit?
The industry is undergoing a digital transformation of automation and data exchange in manufacturing caused by the advance of information technologies and software. This transformation implies a generation of smart factories which represent a leap forward from the automation to a fully connected, flexible and optimized system.
Nowadays, every company is aware that constant renewal and learning are essential to a business’ success. Virtual reality (VR) is among the most advanced systems and the best digitization opportunities. VR makes it possible to experience anything, anywhere, anytime. It is the most immersive type of computer-simulated technology and can convince the human brain that it is somewhere else. That is the reason why the largest enterprises in the world are currently investing huge amounts of money in VR companies and startups. Let’s have a brief look at the benefits in three fields:
- VR in design
- VR in marketing and sales
- VR in training
VR Enhancing Design
VR considerably cuts down on time needed for revisions in product design compared to traditional approaches with physical models and mock-ups. On top of that, new designs can be produced in a more intuitive way. Instead of testing pre-production models, the users can use VR designs in real-world settings and give their feedback to lifelike VR designs, which makes the whole production process way more effective.
VR Boosting Marketing and Sales
Thanks to photorealistic VR visualization, consumers can take a new product for a test-drive before it is even produced. And the buyer can fully test the product in virtual reality before buying it. This gives a tremendous competitive edge to any company using virtual reality. You don’t even have to own any large premises or halls for buyers to be able to test your products. All you need is a simple VR station equipped with VR gear (typically just a VR headset). Many consumers will be attracted to your products just by the novelty of virtual reality. Thus, VR will be a wonderful marketing and sales tool.
VR Enhancing Training
Virtual reality is extremely useful in the engineering sector. Thanks to photorealistic VR, the students, new workers and trainees get the best type of immersive training possible. VR training is immersive, yet safe. This is probably the key principle when it comes to virtual reality in all kinds of industries. VR simulations are lifelike, absorbing, immersive, and yet, VR removes hazards linked with traditional training. VR can be used to train workers on how to use an assembly line, how to work with hazardous substances, or how to behave during high-risk or stressful situations, all in a controlled virtual environment. This is ideal for an endless line of applications in most, if not all, industries.
VR Improving Many Processes
The digital revolution is firmly underway, bringing in smart factories with functions unavailable without novel technologies. The use of digital technologies such as the blockchain, the IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), and VR (Virtual Reality) will be transforming and improving the manufacturing processes in most industries. Manufacturing systems with these technologies will benefit from streamlined processes, lower costs, higher efficiency, quality, reliability, and safety.
