We are pleased to offer all registered attendees of the SAE 2013 Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) Technologies Symposium a two-part tour following the Technical Presentations on Day 2 of the event. Transportation to and from the tours will be provided. Pre-registration is required in advance. Space is limited so register now!

Tour Fee: $35.00 (Price includes both tours)
Tour capacity: 45 People

TOUR - Part 1:

Fraunhofer Institute IAO
In Fraunhofer's demonstration centre for digital engineering, the scientists use examples of applications to show the benefits of marketable software tools and their integration into operational process organization. Guests will tour the following:

3D Interaction Lab
A working environment for researching innovative interactive 3D work and communication scenarios and setting them up as prototypes.

Center for Virtual Engineering
The Center for Virtual Engineering (ZVE) at the Fraunhofer IAO sets new standards for buildings dedicated to work in the knowledge society. The ZVE is built on the extended site of the Fraunhofer IAO.

Digital Engineering Lab
Concepts such as digital production, the digital factory, and collaborative engineering are also explored in the DELab as part of integrated virtual product and production development.

Immersive Engineering Lab
A modern working and presentation environment that allows immersive 3D displays for realistic, detailed, accurately rendered real-time visualization.

Light Fusion Lab
No-one doubts that LED and OLED technologies will dramatically transform both lighting as well as display technology in the years ahead.

Vehicle Interaction Lab
As its name suggests, the Vehicle Interaction Lab is used for research into the interaction between human beings and vehicles.

TOUR - Part 2:

The High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS)

ARVR Tour Image The High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) is the first national supercomputing center in Germany.

In the CAVE at the HLRS, you can experience simulation results in a 3D immersive environment which allows you not only to interact with the visualization but also with the simulation itself, which is running interactively on one of their supercomputers.

Looking for something even faster? Try the Porsche 911 driving simulator. Buckle up - the motion platform will give you 2g of acceleration.

And finally, tour participants will visit the HLRS server room with one of Europe's fastest supercomputers, "Hermit".
