Audi Road-Tests VR Holodeck for Quicker Innovation in its Manufacturing Ability

Audi is testing its VR holodeck which is meant for gauging the designs of the novel vehicles it churns out on a regular basis. The tool provides an environment in which you could literally enter and test a car to the limit of its driving capacity.

A 3D image of the vehicle allows you, the driver, to manage it in the best way you can in the VR world. Thus the engineers and experts can get a pretty good idea of the car’s structural-functional status ahead of time.

This saves up on duration and expenses. Audi is all set to apply similar VR technologies to its vehicles in the future.

Since the past decade and a half, Audi has been busy using VR technology. Slowly yet steadily it has advanced in this regard. The word “holodeck” comes courtesy of the science fiction television series Star Trek.

It is in reference to a singular and unique room that simulates 3D environments that you could literally enter into anytime you want to. These virtual worlds blur the line separating reality from fantasy.

The VR holodeck that Audi possesses allows the vehicles to be examined and tested both from within and without with precision and surety. Until now 2D graphic models had been used in this regard. Now though the world of VR awaits an automaker such as Audi.
