Overview of event

The SAE 2015 Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) Technologies Symposium is a two-day conference about the introduction and integration of Virtual and Augmented Reality products into the design, development and manufacturing systems of organizations.

As the technologies for augmented and virtual reality improve and become more cost effective, individuals from the aerospace, automotive, marine, and commercial vehicle industries are learning to use them as enabling technologies for design, production, and manufacturing to great effect. In order to create long-term value for these technologies within an organization, advocates for AR and VR need to show proof of concept – that these are also foundational tools that can be used throughout their product’s life cycle.

Speakers representing the world’s largest automotive, commercial vehicle, aviation and naval engineering firms will share valuable insights that are applicable to these as well as other industries.

Meeting Goals

At the conference, technical and business sessions will provide attendees with insights into:

  • How to integrate design, manufacturing, and final assembly into the digital thread of your organization
  • 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
