Volkswagen Group is backing virtual reality solutions for interactive collaboration in production & logistics
  • Volkswagen Group is first car manufacturer to roll out virtual reality (VR) technology throughout the Group with HTC VIVE
  • Volkswagen Digital Reality Hub Group platform creates ideal conditions for cross-brand and cross-site collaboration in virtual world
  • Volkswagen Group presents VR solutions with Innoactive and HTC VIVE at the Digility conference and exhibition in Cologne on July 5 and 6

Diving into the deceptively real world of virtual reality (VR), for example exchanging ideas with Group colleagues at a logistics hall in the Czech Republic from Wolfsburg – the latest VR technology makes that possible for the first time. Experts from the Volkswagen Group have developed virtual reality applications for production & logistics that enable several participants to meet in a VR room. Following a test phase, the Volkswagen Group is now the first car manufacturer to roll out VR technology with the HTC VIVE-VR system. The Volkswagen Digital Reality Hub developed for this purpose together with the Innoactive startup bundles all existing VR applications, users and tools in the Group on a single platform. This platform is making its public debut at the Digility conference and exhibition in Cologne.
