On October 14, 2014, the virtual reality presentation day was held at LESC. Key players and experts of Virtual Reality as TechViz, Haption, A.R.T. und fleXstructures presented together with the IMI-research team an exciting day, where the latest developments in the field of virtual reality were shown, such as 3D visualization software, tracking systems, haptic devices and simulation software. Mr. Markus Herb represented Trumpf Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH and Mr. Markus Halbritter from Bosch and Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH spoke about the application of virtual reality technologies in the industry. Other presentations from the research field were held by the hostess Prof. Dr. Dr.-Ing.Dr.h.c. Jivka Ovtcharova and by Dr. Klaus Dressler from the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics. Very popular was the virtual sports car of the students of KA-RaceIng, they showed the 3D model in the CAVE for the first time. The event focused on the use of virtual reality in teaching and research, as well as on industrial prototyping and 3D simulation visualization, great attention was given to the cable simulation software from fleXstructures.
