(EngineerLive) VR has real-world manufacturing potential. In 2015, Gartner’s Hype Cycle saw VR emerging from the Trough of Disillusionment into the Slope of Enlightenment – this means VR started being used for real-world useful applications. In 2016, we are betting the technology will continue its ascent as more manufacturers start to take advantage of its benefits.
The automotive market tends to be an early adopter of disruptive technologies — including automation, robotics and now VR. Another area in which manufacturers are seeing VR shine, is training. The British engineering firm, BAE Systems recently revealed that it creates virtual representations of projects, such as ships, for engineers to practice on.
