Virtual factory with Oculus Rift
ifp consulting uses VR head-mounted display for virtual factory tours
The ifp innovationlab constantly keeps an eye out for new technologies and methodologies in production planning and optimization, which create an added value for our customers.
The innovationlab adapted the Virtual Reality (VR) HDM Oculus Rift, originally built for gaming applications, for the planning of new factory sites and the optimization of existing plants. With the aid of the VR headset it is possible to walk through a newly planned or restructured factory and experience the building in a completely new way.
The following main applications are possible:
- Realistic and immersive depiction of new and restructured factory sites and production facilities
- Experiencing spatial conditions and dimensions
- Quick illustration of different layouts and their influence on the given areas
- Virtual flyovers or walkthroughs for presentations
