Car prototyping

Virtual prototyping can be used in various steps of production, from design and concept approval to virtual testing. It helps cut costs for the full manufacturing cycle by reducing how many rounds of designing are needed. Visual models make it easier to decide on types of materials and required equipment, and help reduce production costs. Companies also use AR technologies to overlay 3D models of details on a car body. This helps in designing various concepts for the vehicle and simplifies assembly processes.

Vehicle testing

VR technologies make it possible to conduct tests virtually that will increase the safety of self-driving cars. VR allows vehicles to safely encounter real-world driving situations such as parking, lane changing, overtaking, and others; and to analyze and memorize dangerous traffic scenarios. Car software powered by AI can be taught to behave correctly in situations it will face on real roads, but with no chance of injuring people or damaging the vehicle. Testing via VR also reduces the cost of fuel, of renting special testing roads, and car repair.

Virtual showrooms

Virtual showrooms allow potential customers to assess cars that aren’t available at the dealer — or even without visiting a dealer at all. Consumers can take a look at the car’s exterior and interior, rotate to see it from various angles, change colors or interior materials, and find the combination they prefer. This benefits dealers by cutting the needed size of dealer showrooms and reducing operating costs. Also, it helps dealers better understand and analyze customers’ preferences and behavior, to improve their sales processes.

Virtual rides

A driving simulator allows users to virtually evaluate the performance of a vehicle they’re considering. It’s a great opportunity for buyers to test drive a car without risking personal safety or damage to the vehicle. Virtual rides also make it possible to safely practice driving vehicles that require a special competence or license.

VR training tools

VR technologies help with training new employees in various sectors. In simulations, employees can practice their skills and learn by doing. This leads to rapid immersion in the process, cutting the error rate and improving the quality of vehicles. VR tools can include visual and audio guidance for achieving better results and allow trainees to make mistakes as they learn without damaging vehicles.

Employee collaboration

VR technologies can boost the ability of employees in distributed teams to collaborate well. The automotive industry requires multiple tasks to be accomplished simultaneously, so VR allows employees all over the world to work together on a simulation in real-time. Each team member can view the history of changes, compare versions, and continue to work from a certain point. This makes for more effective cooperation and avoids delays in decision-making.

How Virtual Reality for Automotive Works

Several components for one purpose

VR application

The client-side of automotive VR software that allows users to interact with various VR scenarios: designing, prototyping, testing, and others.

Administration panel

This module provides access to the content of the VR application and allows for managing and altering all data and processes.

Database

A cloud or server storage for keeping 3D models, scenarios, user information, and other related application data.
