How Virtual Reality is being applied in serious industry

Virtual Reality has taken the world by storm in 2017. What started out as a something used by gaming enthousiasts, today infiltrates every industry from marketing and retail to managing on-site industrial projects in fields such as construction and engineering. We live in a day and age where time is a precious commodity – something that’s not to be wasted. And once again, technology comes to the rescue. Imagine being able to carry out on-site inspection, mapping and survey tasks without having to leave your desk? What was once considered science fiction is now a reality.

We build detailed replicas of infrastructure sites – accurate to the millimeter – in Virtual Reality. You and your team can access these virtual sites at any time and as often as you like. The virtual tool kit facilitates measuring, annotations and taking photographs, negating the need for expensive and time consuming real life site visits. We utilise the latest and greatest in VR technology, and ensure that we’re always at the forefront of the VR game. This makes us great at meeting all our clients’ needs and requirements. And with the various options available, we can find the perfect VR business solution for your budget; from the powerful Oculus Rift and HTC Vive to the more affordable Google Cardboard. For those who are curious about the wonderful world of VR for your business, we welcome you for a visit to our Virtual Reality Lab in Manchester.

Our VR business solutions are collaboration focused. We know how important team work with these projects are. Whether visiting the site solo or as a team; we’ve got you covered. Interacting with colleagues is made easy and efficient through our immersive platform. We offer an array of tools that allow you to work together within the VR space. Creating your customized VR world is an intricate process, and we will be there to guide you every step of the way. We assist in importing whatever existing data you might have into the virtual environment. This includes data such as CAD geometry, laser scans, photogrammetry scans, sensor data etc. Take a look at our showcase for this project we did with Crossrail.

VR Applications

The application of Virtual Reality technology is truly revolutionizing the infrastructure industry. You can now access your VR environment wherever you are and on any device. VR has become the best business decision you’ve ever made. By switching to a VR way of working, you:

  • eliminate the need for driving to and from site visits, wasting valuable time that could have been spent more productively.
  • eliminate the various expenses incurred with these site-visits.
  • have the world as your oyster; projects can literally be scattered across the globe and you can be on-site in a second.
  • can access the site together as a team, even when none of you are in the same location and have different devices.
