Virtual Reality (VR) can reduce time and costs, and lead to an increase in quality, in the development of a product. Given the pressure on car companies to reduce time-to-market and to continually improve quality the automotive industry has championed the use of VR across a number of applications, including design, manufacturing, and training. This paper describes interviews with 11 stakeholders from an automotive manufacturer about their current physical and virtual properties and processes… Expand
