Virtual and Augmented Reality are quickly becoming critical pieces of technology in the design, training and life cycle of manufacturing facilities and processes. Learn the difference between Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) and how these technologies are used in 4.0 manufacturing environments. Examples will be presented, and you will have an opportunity to experience both technologies and immerse yourself in a manufacturing VR experience. Presenter: Hadar Silverman, Earthborn Interactive.
