EuroVR President: Keynote speaker at Salento AVR

EuroVR President Marco Sacco will contribute to the conference SalentoAVR as Keynote Speaker, giving a speech on “Augmented & Virtual Reality Enabler for the Factory 4.0”.

SalentoAVR is an international conference on Augmented and Virtual Reality which is taking place in Otranto from 24th to 27th June. On this occasion, EuroVR president will propose an analysis on the evolution of the manufacturing sector, the so call Factory 4.0, which requires the introduction of advanced tools for both the knowledge representation and simulation.

For over 10 years, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality have generated benefits in several sectors thanks to the potentialities offered by these visualization technologies able to provide an added value to the contents and data enrichment.

Manufacturing companies, thanks to the reduction of cost and a widespread of devices, could now take advantage integrating AR/VR to simulation and emerging AI. The result is a Virtual Factory, a full digital twin of the real plant, that could be used for several purposes, from design to monitoring and logistics, from reconfiguration to training. Some industrial applications will be presented.
