Automotive Immersive Tech Use Case Roundup
Immersive technologies—augmented, virtual, and mixed reality—are being used in industrial environments with great, if quiet, success. The average person pictures the Metaverse as a social virtual world, how Zuckerberg talks about it, but in reality (physical and virtual), enterprises are advancing immersive tech faster and with more tangible benefits.
Mitsubishi Electric Field Services
Mitsubishi Electric is integrating AR and VR into many of its processes, including customer support. Customers can connect with Mitsubishi support team members and engineers with smartphone- and headset-based immersive technology to work through complex support issues. Virtual field support reduces travel time and cost and improves resolution speed.
Toyota is using mixed reality and the Metaverse to enable their employees to share knowledge and improve their performance. With Microsoft HoloLens 2 headsets, Toyota employees can access all of the company’s tools and training without carrying around a laptop or paper guides. Employees can access 3D renderings of vehicle information and training guides. The training times for various individual users have been reduced by up to 50%.
Volkswagen Autonomous Vehicle Simulations
Volkswagen is using game engines and advanced data analysis to help stakeholders make better-informed decisions to bring fully autonomous vehicles into reality. They’re using autonomous driving simulations and validations to help create autonomous vehicles that are safe, effective, and enjoyable.
