Live Panel Discussion: Simulating Reality with a Touch of AR-VR

Join us to discuss bringing CAD data into the AR-VR pipelines; adopting entertainment and game technologies for product development; and rethinking simulation and validation to incorporate haptic (touch-enabled) technologies.

For years designers and engineers have worked in 3D modeling and simulation applications with immersive, photorealistic visuals that can mimic reality. The affordable AR-VR gears and hardware that have recently emerged promise to bring the missing piece—a sense of touch—into product development. Join us to discuss bringing CAD data into the AR-VR pipelines; adopting entertainment and game technologies for product development; and rethinking simulation and validation to incorporate haptic (touch-enabled) technologies.

Incorporating Haptic Devices into Product Design and Validation

The affordable AR-VR displays and headsets deliver unprecedented realism in immersive visuals, but without a sense of touch—the final missing piece—they cannot fully mimic the real-world experience. And this can affect the reliability and usefulness of design reviews, product development, and training programs that make use of AR-VR technologies.

In this LIVE roundtable moderated by DE, panelists will discuss:

  • the role of haptic devices in AR-VR-based training and design review;
  • market trends for professional use of AR-VR;
  • examples of touch-integrated AR-VR. 

Attendees can submit their questions during the question and answer session!
