Accessible VR: Implications of Consumer Systems in a Professional World
Virtual Reality systems are quickly hitting the consumer market at a significantly reduced price point. This will have an impact across many industries, including the mobility market. More than just a reduced cost implication, we will examine the benefits the newly accessible technology will have on everyday operations where usage will be at the desk and in the field versus the lab, product design where lower-cost technology does not compromise quality, and hands-on employee training that can be conducted in boundaryless classrooms.

John Deere uses AR/VR Techniques to Drive Productivity and Quality Improvement
Augmented reality has tremendous value in many aspects of life. Applications in a traditional manufacturing facility bring with it opportunities but also unique challenges. We will explore the value which AR can expose and open up to improve productivity and cost controls. The presentation will show how AR technologies can be used for work cell planning and layout, dynamic work instruction presentation to operators, and mistake proofing assistance.
