Virtual Reality, VR, has long been used as an immersive design-review tool. VR toolmakers like NVIDIA and MiddleVR view VR as a collaborative environment for design. The ability to design in VR could change product development yet we have far to go.
Complex simulations generate large data sets. To achieve good results, engineers might predetermine their analysis. Virtual reality for analysis of large scale simulations provides a tool for greater exploration and discovery. And that can lead to better designs.
The motorsport experts at Spark Racing Technology needed aerodynamic expertise with fast turn-around times for the FIA Formula E racecar’s new front wing design.
