How Would William Gibson Design a Car?

Using virtual reality to design cars is not a new thing. But using “mixed” reality—and even wearing a VR headset while driving—goes to another place, entirely—physically and metaphysically.

Argosim Stimulus detects ambiguous, incorrect, missing, and conflicting design requirements—even before functional design starts—ensuring complete and consistent high-quality specifications for validating embedded systems. Mobility

The common data model, information technology infrastructure, and cloud technologies make the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE relevant.

Ford’s Global 3D Model

Gravity Sketch is a 3D virtual reality tool that allows designers to go directly to 3D modeling, with gestures taking the place of a stylus and tablet. Ford designers find the Co-Creation feature particularly useful, as this allows designers in studios around the world to be able to interact with the “same” 3D model.
