What is virtual reality [VR] technology?
Virtual reality [VR] as the name suggests is the combination of “virtual” and “reality.” It is the artificial environment that is made by the software and displayed to the user in such a manner that the user gets immersed in this world of AR/VR/MR and accepts it as reality. This is a type of reality emulation that can create vivid scenarios for the user. Our brain perceives reality through our perception systems and our senses.
VR by a computer works by providing rich information to two of our senses, i.e., hearing and sight. In this case, the user is presented with information which is a version of reality (that is not there physically), but the brain perceives it as real. This is the technology behind Virtual Reality Development.
How is it useful for industrial areas?
Due to rapid innovation, cost of AR and VR hardware is becoming more affordable. VR industry is poised to reach 7.5 billion dollars in 2018. Industries have started exploring its uses in various functions ranging from advertising & marketing to high-tech manufacturing to even military training and space exploration. These industry 4.0 systems blur the border between the cyber and physical systems.
With the help of Virtual reality, entire production lines created in simulation, and their flow analyzed for optimization and increased throughput. This has the potential to save millions of dollars in manufacturing operations.
VR used to create virtual maps of bodies, enabling them to try out clothes virtually in 3D. Customers can experience products in more immersive ways with the help of VR/AR. For example, you can point your smartphone at your feet, and the shoes appear on your feet. You can try on as many varieties as required in this way.
Car makers such as Audi, Ford are transforming the dealership experience for the customer. Their VR apps enables the customer to visually look and feel the custom interiors as per their preferred specifications. Customers can also do experiential test drives and immersive car tours giving them an unforgettable experience.
