BMW Driving Simulator.

"Before BMW´s driving assistance systems become reality in the various models, they have to be tested. With the dynamic driving simulator experts can create virtual situations in daily life to check the functionality of these systems. This high-tech testing is necessary to guarantee the passenger´s safety on the road."

Thanks for link João,

The last Ford I rented had terrible visibility with the window reinforcement bar blocking much of my driver side view sight. Nice to see how BMW is trying catch potential design problems like this earlier.

I'm looking forward to the day a 3D printer can print a 3D printer :-)

So, I've held back on talking about 3D Printing for a while but it's now unavoidable. It's clearly past a fad stage and people are now using 3D printing for new workflows and significant process improvements. Be it a dentist who can now more economically make molds for tooth fillings, or a design engineers who can experiement and better communicate automotive designs, 3D printing is significantly helping.

It's also changing where manufacturing is done, moving manufacturing back to being closer to the customer ( http://www.futureworld.org/PublicZone/MindBullets/MindBulletsDetails.aspx?MindBulletID=637)

This scoop link is good example to how Ford is using it (Additive Manufacturing).

A fairly nice example of AR for the Automotive. However i still feel this only just touches the surface of what can be done. I would also like to see more VR included in such brochures (for example, being able to "sit" in the Audi and look around the car from the inside). I'd also love to see more examples outside of sales and marketing for example in service and support (eg. showing how a part in a part catalog can be installed). 

If you are interested in something like this (or better). Contact me jed[at]4dpipeline.com, we are experienced with all the major AR SDKs and technologies.
