Engineering


High-end optical tracking solutions support industrial product design and prototype development.
Virtual Reality (VR) is one technology supporting design and prototype phases creating a computer-generated world in which the user can perform tasks using real world movements and actions.
Application of VR in prototyping phase reduces development risks and therefore costs and increases the later product success on the market.
Accurate and reliable motion tracking technology of ART guarantees a realistic interaction with virtual content.
