Virtual and Augmented Reality Technologies in Mobility Engineering the Focus of SAE International Symposium in Birmingham, UK

WARRENDALE, Pa., May 6, 2015 -

SAE International’s Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) Technologies Symposium will show attendees how to integrate design, manufacturing and final assembly of augmented and virtual technologies into the digital threads of their organizations.

Slated for Nov. 5-6 at The NEC Birmingham, in Birmingham, United Kingdom, this symposium also will show:

·         How to show an economic value proposition for using AR and VR within your company's advanced manufacturing enterprise

·         Previous experiences, challenges, and solutions from experts in other industries utilizing AR or VR

·         The future outlook of AR and VR for the mobility industry

The symposium also will feature a technical tour of Jaguar Land Rover’s Virtual Engineering Centre.
